BLUEBERRY LEMON POPPY SEED CAKE

Who doesn’t love cake for breakfast? Cake should be considered a breakfast food don’t you think?

This cake starts with a simple store bought lemon cake mix then we dress it up with some fresh lemon zest and poppy seeds and swirl blueberry pie filling in the cake batter. I use store bought pie filling but feel free to make your own.

Once the cake is baked and cooled it is topped with a fresh and creamy whipped topping with just a hint of lemon zest. This topping really takes the cake! Ha! No pun intended!

I have a weakness for fresh whipped topping and will admit that I make it all the time. There is nothing like fresh whipped topping. Yummy with some fresh juicy strawberries, topped on a hot fudge sundae, pound cake, or just with a spoon!

Sometimes frosting can be too thick, too sugary and really over power the flavors of the cake. Making this easy whipped topping for the cake is quick, easy and the perfect compliment to this cake.

To make whipped topping you just need heavy whipping cream, a little sugar and for this recipe a little lemon zest which is completely optional. Just add the ingredients into a bowl and whip it up on high speed using a stand or hand held mixer. In literally minutes you have fresh whipped cream ready to go! It’s so good!

If you love this cake then you don’t want to miss my Strawberries and Cream Cake! It’s just like this but with a white cake and strawberry filling. It’s delish!
