“This is a great recipe that is simple and delicious! The base consists of using a box cake mix, so it's easy and saves on time. I did not include the 4 hour refrigeration time in the "prep time". I suggest making the cake before bed and assembling the rest in the morning. I use fresh blueberries, but if they are hard to find, well drained frozen blueberries should taste just as well.”
