Sharing is caring!

This Easy Lemon Blueberry Poundcake is easy to make with a secret shortcut. Great when you do not have a lot of time!
This is a classic recipe and it reminds me of when I was a kid enjoying an after-school snack with my grandmother!
Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake - so easy to make for brunch, dessert or snack time!

Why This Shortcut Blueberry Pound Cake Recipe?

This is a shortcut recipe using a boxed mix if you would like to make this from scratch, check out my Lemon Blueberry Cake recipe.
During the summer, I love to keep the ingredients on hand and as long as you have a cup of fresh blueberries, you can make this pound cake easily.
This is a perfect quick brunch recipe, that also works as a lunch box treat or afternoon tea snack. I always use fresh blueberries, but you can use frozen if that is what is available. The lemon and blueberry flavors compliment each other so nicely and to me, this pound cake just shouts sunshine!
It is a wonderful way to enjoy the flavors of summer, and we are all about celebrating the season.

I wanted to try a lemon pound cake with blueberries. As you know I am all about saving time in the kitchen, so I used a boxed pound cake mix to help simplify the process in making this delightful Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake.

timesaving tips to streamline recipes
  • Be sure to prep the pan for easy clean-up.
  • We have taken a big shortcut by using a boxed pound cake. It really does save time and if you want to make this ahead of time, you can make it the evening before you plan to serve it.
