This is a recipe I got from a friend's grandmother; everyone who has ever tried it has wanted the recipe. They're also usually surprised at how easy it is to make; they think it takes alot more work than it does. If you don't like blueberries, you can try other types of fruit; one of the ladies at work told me she tried it with raspberries and it was just as good.
- 1 butter recipe cake mix, any brand
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 4 eggs

- 1⁄2 tablespoon almond extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened

- **Please note: You can also use fresh blueberries for this recipe! If you wish to do so, you will need: 4 cups blueberries, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup lemon juice, and 1/3 cup cornstarch.
- Mix together blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a heavy saucepan. Stirring frequently, bring to a boil.
- Combine the cornstarch with just enough water to make a paste. Pour into the berry mixture and stir until thick. Cool the mixture before using on the cake.
