  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup blueberries, tossed in 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 (22 oz.) can Lucky Leaf Lemon Fruit Filling

Buttercream Frosting

  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp heavy cream



  1. Step 1

    In a separate bowl, mix sugar and lemon zest, add eggs, vanilla, and milk, beat until smooth.

  3. Step 3
    Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth.

  4. Step 4
    Toss blueberries in 1 TBS flour and add blueberries to the batter and stir. **Don’t skip tossing in flour, as it helps soak up some of the moisture from the berries.
