Also called boy bait, this classic blueberry coffee cake will entice not just the boys, but everyone! 

This dessert is made with a fluffy blueberry coffee cake with a cinnamon streusel on top. With hints of lemon, this dish is light and refreshing; it’s perfect for breakfast or brunch.

Top it with whipped cream or ice cream to make it more extra. 

Fun fact: the original recipe was invented by a 15-year-old girl named Renny Powell, who submitted it to a baking competition hosted by Pillsbury.

While she only finished second, her recipe (and the witty name) has gotten so popular, people love making it to this day.

7. Blueberry Cheesecake

I’m already getting giddy just typing that! Rich and buttery graham cracker crust, creamy cheesecake filling, and a sweet blueberry swirl on top.

Now that’s what I’m talking about!

Blueberry cheesecake is one dessert I can’t say no to. I mean, how can anyone? It has the richest flavor and the most luscious consistency.

And those pretty swirls of blueberry sauce on top? It’s to die for!

8. Blueberry Banana Bread

Classic banana bread is already amazing on its own. But add blueberries to that tender and fluffy bread? That’s what I call perfection!

In this recipe, we’re giving a fresh riff on a classic. What’s better than a sweet banana bread? One that’s chock full of blueberries! 

We’re also adding yogurt to the batter to add moisture to the bread. It makes a lot of difference. These two additions make banana bread even better!

9. Blueberry Waffles

Crisp, fluffy, and golden blueberry waffles bursting topped with maple syrup and blueberry sauce: it’s the first thing I want to see in the morning.

This breakfast is the stuff of dreams!

These waffles only take 15 minutes to make! Plus, a thick blueberry glaze makes them even more magical. You can never have too many blueberries.

10. Blueberry Compote

This blueberry compote is so irresistibly delicious, it’s the perfect sauce for any dessert!

Whether it’s pancakes, waffles, French toast, or ice cream, there’s no dessert this compote can’t boost. It’s so good, it can even salvage ruined desserts!

Believe me, I’ve had my fair share of failed dessert attempts, and this blueberry compote has managed to fix them.

This thick and luscious syrup only calls for 5 ingredients and 15 minutes of your time! Minimal effort, maximum flavor: it’s the perfect recipe!

What I also love about the recipe is that you can adjust its consistency to your liking. You can make it as thin or thick as you want! 

11. Lemon Blueberry Bread

Lemon and blueberries are a fool-proof combination that’s sure to make any dish a success. This lemon blueberry bread is the perfect example.

It’s a moist and tender bread loaded with blueberries and topped with a sweet and citrusy lemon glaze. It has everything you want in a quick bread, and more.

You might think this bread requires pro levels of baking, but nope! All it takes is 15 minutes of hands-on prep, and the oven takes care of the rest.

12. Blueberry Crumb Bars

All the goodness of blueberries and crumble in one heavenly bar? Yes, yes, so much yes!

Here’s the anatomy of a blueberry crumb bar. The crust is shortbread that’s so buttery, it will melt in your mouth.

The filling is made of hundreds of fresh blueberries flavored with lemon and sugar.

As for the top? It’s a crisp, golden brown crumble. 

If that’s not a perfect summer dessert, then I don’t know what is! These bars are so addictive, you can’t just have one. Good thing this recipe yields 15 servings!

13. Blueberry Pound Cake

Lemon cake infused with hundreds of blueberries, this pound cake is the stuff of legends! 

It may be a simple pound cake, but it is bursting with so much flavor. Soft and tender cake stuffed with blueberries and flavored with lemon zest and lemon juice?

It’s the perfect combination.  

As if that wasn’t good enough, it’s also drizzled with a sweet and tart lemon glaze. Try it once, and I’m sure you’ll want to eat it again and again!

14. Blueberry Cookies

These cookies are loaded with blueberries and white chocolate; plus, they have a cream cheese and blueberry jam center to boot. Now that’s what I call a cookie.

How can you go wrong with blueberries, chocolate, and cream cheese? It’s the perfect formula!

The combo of sweet and tangy, tender, and ooey-gooey: it’s madness, and I love it.

15. Blueberry Dump Cake

With only three ingredients, this blueberry dump cake could not get any easier. And it’s called dump cake for a reason: you literally just dump the ingredients and bake!

Just because it’s a breeze to make doesn’t mean it’s not divine. In fact, it’s one of my favorite cake recipes!

How can you go wrong with a sweet blueberry filling with a buttery, golden cake topping?

But really, the best part about this cake is how little effort it requires. First of all, you only need a pre-made cake mix, blueberry pie filling, and cold butter.

That’s it! Layer those in a pan, and pop it in the oven. It just takes 5 minutes of prep!

Eaten fresh from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this dessert will be a sure hit.

16. Lemon Blueberry Biscuits

Sweet, tart, and fluffy lemon blueberry biscuits topped with a lemon honey glaze – these guys are a certified breakfast hit!

I love how these biscuits aren’t too overpoweringly sweet. What gives them sweetness is the glaze, so it’s up to you to decide how much of it you want to add.

Personally, I like to go all-in!

17. Blueberry Pie

Whenever I hear the word blueberries, the first thing that comes to mind is pie. It’s the most obvious dessert to make when you have tons of blueberries on hand!

Blueberries flavored with zesty lemon and warm spices, encased in a pretty lattice crust… yes, please!

And if you think that only your mom has what it takes to make the classic blueberry pie, think again.

It’s not that complicated, I promise you! This recipe has a complete walkthrough of everything you need to perfect this timeless dish. 

If you’re pressed for time or just want to make your life easier, you can always use a store-bought pie crust instead. Don’t worry, I won’t judge!

18. Blueberry French Toast Casserole

French toast loaded with blueberries and maple syrup in casserole form? I’m already drooling! 

Challah bread, fresh blueberries, brown sugar, creamy custard, and a cinnamon streusel on top. Oh, how I love blueberry French toast. 

This recipe is so easy to make, to boot! For one, since it’s a baked dish, there’s no need to stand in front of the stovetop to cook one bread at a time.  

Second, you can make it ahead of time! Just prep it the night before and bake for 45 minutes the following morning. Perfect!

19. Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Blueberries and cheesecake in ice cream form – this may sound impossible, but yes, you can make it at home!

This recipe includes a churn and no-churn method, so you don’t even need an ice cream maker to pull this off. 

The best part about this refreshing ice cream, though, is the flavor combination.

Sweet and tangy blueberries and rich and creamy cheesecake together as an ice cream? It’s pure ecstasy.

20. Blueberry Lemon Trifle

This blueberry lemon trifle has layers of angel food cake, lemon pudding, fresh blueberries, and whipped cream. How gorgeous!

There’s nothing but goodness in this trifle. The fresh blueberries and the lemon pudding together make the most magical flavor combination.

It’s refreshing, with just the right amount of sweetness and tartness. 

The layers of fluffy angel food cake bind all the ingredients together. Plus, there’s a thick whipped cream on top to finish it off.

You’ll want a second helping for sure!

21. Blueberry Smoothie

This blueberry smoothie is sweet, refreshing, creamy, and satisfying. It’s everything you want in a smoothie, and more!

It’s ridiculously delicious and nutritious, making it the perfect breakfast. It never fails to hit the spot.

It’s a breeze to make as well. You just blend frozen blueberries, bananas, almond butter, and almond milk. Voila! A hearty, healthy, and tasty drink.

22. Blueberry Mini Cheesecakes

Blueberry cheesecake is already on my list, but I think these mini cheesecakes deserve the spotlight, too!

How charming is it to have a cheesecake in cupcake form? Pretty and appetizing, these mini cheesecakes are perfect for any occasion.

With a graham cracker crust, a velvety lemon cheesecake filling, and a blueberry topping, these little cheesecakes will surely knock your socks off. 

23. Blueberry Parfait

Last on our list is a sweet and nutritious breakfast you can make any day. It may not be as hearty as, say, pancakes and waffles, but it will definitely get you going in the morning.

A mixture of yogurt, granola, and a blueberry compote, this blueberry parfait is a simple yet satisfying treat.
