Blueberry Lime Cream Cheese Pound Cake*

I know, I know. Blueberries? Again?? You don’t even have to tell me.

I’m sure I have blueberried y’all out over the last couple of months, but they just looks so pretty! Who wouldn’t want a big slice of this cake with a hot cup of coffee?

I am working this week with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese on seasonally fresh recipes combining beautiful summer ingredients with their fabulous cream cheese. So when I was brainstorming ideas, there was one big obvious pairing for me…Blueberries, Lime and Cream Cheese.

I was doing a little reading up on PHILADELPHIA as a company and just found out that they have been making cream cheese since 1872!! How crazy is that? I wonder if bagels have been around just as long too?! Seriously, PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese has been around longer than cars. Whoa.

But what I loved reading the most about PHILADELPHIA, they use all real fresh ingredients in their cream cheese. It’s all real, fresh, local milk from farms nearby and wholesome cream. In a world with a lot of fake ingredients, that is a comfort to hear.

Even the flavored varieties like Spicy Jalapeno have real jalapenos in it! I just bought some of it to try out in my Creamy Pico de Gallo Dip. That would give it that little something extra!

Anyways, back to this pound cake! We really loved the bright bursts of blueberries, zesty lime and sweet cream cheese frosting. It also has cream cheese in the cake to keep it moist, but be careful, if you over bake it, it will dry out. If you are a big fan of lime, you can also add it to the cream cheese frosting for an extra zing!


Blueberry Lime Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Yield: 1 Loaf Cake


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons lime zest
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and butter the parchment paper as well. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In stand mixer, beat together cream cheese, butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, throughly mixing each time. Add vanilla extract and lime zest, mixing until combined.

Pour flour mixture over the batter mixture. Using a large rubber spatula, gently fold in the flour until it’s completely mixed in and there are no pockets of dry flour. Lastly, gently fold in the blueberries.

Transfer batter to prepared baking loaf pan. Bake for 55-65 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let sit until cool, at least 30 minutes and then remove from pan.

In a stand mixer or large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add confectioners' sugar and beat on low speed until combined, then on high until frosting is smooth. Beat in vanilla extract.

Carefully frost on top of the cooled poundcake and store in fridge until ready to serve.

    I tried this recipe twice with a few tweaks and my coworkers were having outer body experiences eating this thank you so much for the recipe. I usually always dust my blueberries with a bit of cornstarch or flour to prevent them from sinking but it didn’t work well the first time (but it still tasted awesome) but I solved it the second time. I actually threw in extra blueberries and I threw them in with the dry ingredients so and folded them in. IT WAS PERFECT!!!

    this looks delicious! Can I substitute blueberries with some other fruit? Unfortunately, in my country it is verry difficult to find fresh blueberries and if we do, they are VERY expensive… Can you please suggest any other summer fruits that I could use for this cake? Thank you!

    • Jessica replied: — July 8th, 2013 @ 1:01 pm

      Any berrys would be good! Raspberries, Blackberries or even Cranberry! However I would think about what kind of citrus to use…

      Raspberries – Lemon

      Cranberry – Orange

      Blackberry – Lime

    Lynda — July 8, 2013 @ 9:29 am

    I made this today and it sunk. I questioned whether I should use baking soda or baking powder, and I think I should have used baking soda instead. Next time I make this I will make the swith and see what happens.

    My blueberry cake is in the oven right now. I just happened to have cream cheese and a lime on hand so I couldn’t wait to make it. I never cheat with cream cheese– It’s Philadelphia or nothing. My French friends are desperate to get their hands on it. I think it is just showing up in stores there. They just call it Philadelphie with that cute French accent! Thanks so much for this!

    I saw these on Pinterest today and made them up in a jiffy. It’s hot here today, so I didn’t want the oven on any longer than necessary. I put them into a muffin tin and baked for 25 minutes. Perhaps I could shave off a few minutes next time. The batter wasn’t as voluminous as my usual muffin recipes. I love the tangy lime with the blueberry. THANKS!

    I, too, can never get enough blueberries. Love them and perhaps have a special attachment to them because I raked them in Nova Scotia when I was a youngster.

    Sounds delicious. Here in the tropics we don’t get too many fresh blueberries. Would frozen ones do? Thanks

      Hi Kay! I’m sure it will be fine with frozen blueberries, just make sure that there is no ice chunks on them! :-)

    Does the flour need to be sifted?

    […] Blueberry Lime Cream Cheese Pound Cake — We really loved the bright bursts of blueberries, zesty lime and sweet cream cheese frosting. It also has cream cheese in the cake to keep it moist, but be careful, if you over bake it, it will dry out. If you are a big fan of lime, you can also add it to the cream cheese frosting for an extra zing! […]

    I’ve just made this cheese cake yesterday. Oh my! It was so delicious. The blueberry just melted beautifully. With only the lemon zest, wow a good combination between blueberry & lemon!
    I did not include the frosting but it tasted heavenly.
    My husband tasted it the moment he came home from work. The boys loved it too.
    Thanks for the recipe, Jessica! It gives me the encouragement to continue baking for the beloved family. Do keep the recipes coming! :)

    Lisa @ Fresh Eggs Daily — February 25, 2014 @ 7:04 pm

    Wonderful recipe! I used blackberries instead with the lime and next time will try cranberry orange. I used duck eggs instead of chicken because that’s usually what I bake with. I also shared the recipe with my mother-in-law even because it was so good.

    Hi…Im from Mexico City I just made this morning this DELICIOUS recipe I just changed something. In order to a avoíd density in the cake I substituid 1/2 cup of flúor for1/2 cup of cornstarch and its gorgeous…..

    Barbara — March 15, 2014 @ 5:09 pm

    This sounds amazing. When I make it I will not waste the rest of the lime after zesting it. Instead will mix the juice with a tablespoon or so of sugar and microwave it for a few seconds. When the cake is finished baking, poke holes all over the top and gently spoon the sweetened lime juice over the cake. Then continue with the frosting. Lots of lime flavor. Thanks for the recipe.

    2 TABLESPOONS of zest? Is that correct, that seems like a lot…

    • Jessica replied: — September 8th, 2015 @ 9:21 am

      Hi Jean, Yes – 2 tablespoons is correct. If you want, you can cut it down to match your tastes, but we love it as is!

    hi! i want to ask, if I use blueberry pie filling instead of fresh ones, (it’s super expensive in our country) would it affect the batter? because it would have more liquid. pls tell me how to fix it! thanks a lot!

    • Jessica replied: — September 8th, 2015 @ 9:20 am

      I would not recommend blueberry pie filing. Do you have affordable frozen blueberries? Frozen are just fine! Or any other kind of berry you like would be a good substitute!

      Hi Jennifer, you could do any fruit you like! Just make sure and squeeze out any extra liquid as blueberries aren’t too wet. :-)

    I doubled this lovely blueberry lime cream cheese pound cake recipe and made it in a square 9×9 pan. I was wondering how long should I bake it? Also does it freeze well with frosting? Thank you! Can’t wait to try it!

    • Jessica replied: — September 8th, 2015 @ 9:17 am

      Hi Petra,

      I am honestly not sure how long you should be it in a 9×9 pan as I have never made it in anything like that before. I would just keep an eye on it and test it when you think it’s close! As for freezing, it does freeze well without the frosting. So if you would like to freeze it, I would freeze it before frosting it!

    Donna — August 31, 2015 @ 12:53 pm

    I have made a lot of your recipes and they turned out wonderful but I made this cake this past weekend and it was dry. I even shortened the baking time by 10 minutes. I am thinking that letting it sit in the pan for 30 minutes after it’s baked is too long. I have never let a cake sit in it’s pan for that long so I am going to try it again only letting it sit in pan for just a few minutes. ( By the way, we still ate the cake, just topped it with some vanilla ice cream and it helped moisten it. )

    • Jessica replied: — September 8th, 2015 @ 9:18 am

      Huh. This recipe never turns out dry for me! In fact, it’s one of my favorites!

      Glad you were able to fix it up with some ice cream! 😉
