Hi all! This month’s theme for the #Foodie Extravaganza Party is Fruit Cake and I really had a hard time trying to come up with something to share! You see my mind went straight to those pre-packaged little logs they sell in the big chain stores at Christmas time with the dried red and green fruit pieces…and quite frankly I don’t like them. Now I know there are a lot of really good homemade fruit cakes that are amazing…but that was were my mind went.
So after reading the description of the party it could be any cake you serve during the holidays…phew… Thanks goodness…I knew what I wanted to share…My Lemon Berries Bundt Cake! This cake is more like a coffee cake and is perfect to serve when guest come over…and my favorite is to serve it for breakfast on Christmas morning…just a little something to tied everyone over!
Oh and it has fruit in it…so technically it is a Fruit Cake!!! So here is what you need to make it:
For the Cake
- 1 stick of butter, soften
- 1/2 block of cream cheese, soften
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 cups of baking mix, like Bisquit or Jiffy Mix
- 1 can of sweeten condensed milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup of blueberries, frozen or fresh
- 1 cup raspberries, frozen or fresh
- 1 lemon, both the juice and the zest
First cream the butter and cream cheese with the sugar.
Then add the baking mix, 1/2 of the can of condensed milk (we will use the other half for the glaze), the vanilla, eggs and the lemon juice and zest. Mix Well.
Then gently fold in your berries.
Pour into a prepared Bundt pan. (oiled and floured generously) Bake at 325 degree oven for 1 hr. and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
This what you get!! 🙂 Let it cool completely…the invert it on to a plate. Then make your glaze drizzle.
For the Glaze Drizzle
- the other half of the sweet condensed milk
- 1/2 lemon juiced
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup of powdered sugar
Blend until smooth. Then I put it in a baggie and cut the tip off to drizzle over the cooled cake.
Doesn’t that look pretty?
Look at the berries and how they are so random when you cut it!
Slice it up and serve it to your guest! I hope you Enjoy!!
