Recipe: MEMORIAL DAY COOKOUT WEEK: BLUEBERRY CITRUS CAKE

Memorial Day weekend is approaching, and it's the perfect excuse to invite friends over for a beginning-of-summer cookout. This week, we'll give you some recipe ideas. Today's dessert idea comes from tasteofhome.com.

INGREDIENTS

1 package (18-1/4 ounces) yellow cake mix

3 eggs

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

CITRUS FROSTING:

1 package (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup butter, softened

3 cups confectioners' sugar

2 tablespoons orange juice

2 teaspoons grated orange peel

1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

2 cups whipped topping



DIRECTIONS

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.
