Author: Kim Lange

Ingredients

  • 1 box vanilla cake mix 18.25 oz, 1 lb
  • 1/3 cup butter room temperature
  • 2 eggs divided
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Optional: 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Spray 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray, or line with foil and spray foil to easily take bars out of pan to cut squares.
  • In large bowl, combine butter, one egg and cake mix. Mixture will be very stiff, so you might opt to use your hands (which I did.)
  • Reserve 1 cup of cake mixture for crumble topping, set aside.
  • Press the remaining cake mixture in the bottom of the pan and bake for 10 minutes.
  • While crust is baking, in a mixing bowl using mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and remaining egg until smooth.
  • Spread cream cheese mixture over top the partially baked crust.
  • Evenly arrange the blueberries over the cream cheese mixture and the sprinkle with remaining crumbles.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until center is set and crumbles on top turn golden brown.
  • Cool completely on wire rack.
  • Chill approximately 30 minutes before serving.

Notes

Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
For a quick glaze, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 - 2 tablespoons milk, mix with a fork to get a thick pourable consistency.  Tip: I put this mixture in microwave for 10=15 seconds and then pour it on bars.  Glaze with firm up as it cools.
