Ingredients You Will Need:

(full amounts in recipe box below)

  • Cake Mixwe use a white cake mix, but a yellow cake mix will work as well. We also talk about turning this into a lemon blueberry poke cake and give instructions below.

Lemon Blueberry Poke Cake:

One of our favorite alternative ways of making this is turning it into Lemon Blueberry Poke Cake. Simply change the cake to a boxed lemon cake mix or you can make our homemade lemon sheet cake and proceed with the directions. Instead of the crushed graham cracker topping, top with lemon zest and fresh blueberries.

Either way you make this will be absolutely delicious and perfect for Summer!

How To Make Homemade Blueberry Sauce:

We tend to always go for “easy” when sharing recipes, but also like to give options for homemade. Especially since blueberry pie filling is not a staple and most of you might not have it on hand. Making your own blueberry sauce is still easy just requiring fresh blueberries.

  • 12 ounces fresh blueberries, rinsed
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1 Tbsp water


  • In a medium pan, combine blueberries, sugar, flour and water.
  • Cook over medium-high heat until mixture starts to bubble, continually stirring. Turn down heat to low and let simmer until the blueberries are softened.
  • Cook until sauce thickens; around 10 minutes stirring frequently.
  • Cool for 20 minutes and refrigerate until ready to use.

Tips & Tricks

The holes – make sure to poke the holes in the cake as soon as it comes from the oven. You want it hot.  A wooden spoon is perfect to make the correct sized holes that hold the blueberry filling. The holes should be spaced about an inch apart. Seven or eight down and five or six across seems to be good.

Flavors – You could use any berry flavor you prefer. I really love Strawberry Poke Cake! Poke cakes are so simple but the flavors are amazing! Cakes with fruit filling taste so fresh and everyone will think you spent hours slaving away over it!
