  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup melted butter, cooled 5 minutes
  • ¼ cup oil

  1. In a large mixer bowl beat sugar with eggs, until well mixed.
  2. Add in flour, baking powder, milk, melted butter, oil, and vanilla.
  3. Mix until creamy.
  4. Place batter into 3 - 8 inch round baking pans that have been sprayed with a baking spray.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Allow cakes to cool for 5 minutes, then turn them out onto a cooling rack.
  7. When the cake is completely cooled.
  8. Spread some apricot jam onto each layer as you stack it up, then add a layer of cream cheese frosting and blueberries.

  10. Chill cake to set up the layers firm.
  11. Slice and enjoy!
Notes
Cream Cheese Frosting
1 cup butter
1-8 package cream cheese
4-6 cups sifted powdered sugar (depending on how firm you want the frosting, I usually add 5 and see how thick it is)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons heavy cream
