1 cup orange juice
1/3 cup canola oil
1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon grated orange peel

Never miss a local story.
In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, orange juice and oil; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Fold in blueberries and peels. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
For frosting, in a small bowl, combine cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Add the confectioners' sugar, orange juice and peels; beat until blended. Fold in whipped topping.
Spread frosting between layers and over the top and sides of cake. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 12 servings.
