Exploding with juicy blueberries and spices this 9×13, simple blueberry cake with cream cheese frosting is sure to become a favorite.

As I was making and then eating my berry delicious blackberry spice cake, it occurred to me, this cake would be just as berry delicious with blueberries. 

Sure enough, adding blueberries instead of blackberries to this easy spice cake created such yum.  The blueberries, just like the blackberries, made such a delightfully melody with the spices and cream cheese frosting.

So, whether you use frozen or fresh blueberries, your taste buds will find their thrill on this blueberry spice cake hill.

Simple Blueberry Spice Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting

Blueberry Spice Cake

I like to think of this blueberry cake as kind of an Indian Summer cake. In Indian summer, summer shows up amongst all of falls colors, smells and activities (You’re having a pumpkin spice latte and sweating, because it’s 90 on October 15).

Same thing with this scrumptious blueberry cake. The sweet juicy blueberries of summer just show up amongst cinnamon, allspice and cloves, the toasty fall spices in this spice cake.

However, instead of being unwelcome or out of place in this old fashioned spice cake, these blueberries enhance the already delicious spice cake. They combine brilliantly with the fall spices and even give the spice cake a yummy, juicy, sweet flavor punch.

You will love the one-two flavor punch of this blueberry spice cake. Who knows if it’s a spring/summer cake or a fall/winter cake. All that matters is, it’s a knockout of a cake and, because of the fall and summer flavors, can be served all year long.

Baking Tips For The Best Blueberry Cake Ever

  • You can make this blueberry cake with frozen blueberries or fresh blueberries. If using frozen blueberries, thaw the blueberries first and then pat them dry before folding in the batter.
  • Fold your blueberries in the batter just before turning your batter into the pan. This will help prevent purple streaks in the batter.
  • Toss the blueberries in 1 to 2 tablespoons of flour before folding them into the batter. This will help prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.

Can You Freeze Blueberry Cake With Frosting

This cake freezes very well. While writing this post I’m actually eating a piece of this cake that was in the freezer for a week. It is still so yummy after serving some freezer time. To freeze this cake:

  • Cut the cake in squares and place the squares in a freezer storage container. Do not place the squares on top of each other. The cake will keep around 3 months in the freezer.
  • If you’re making this cake ahead of time and will need to serve it uncut, you can freeze this 9×13 blueberry cake in the pan. Simply wrap the entire pan in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil.
