I usually put a lot more thought into what I am going to cook or bake, but having picked around 100g of fresh blueberries from the garden yesterday morning, I needed blueberry inspiration, and I don't mean muffins.
Blueberry Cake, minus the lemon zest and lemon drizzle.
Firstly, the cake took much longer to bake - almost 45 minutes. The texture was also very crumby and buttery. I think the original recipe assumes you have a food processor as part of the instructions was to 'place all the ingredients in a bowl and beat'. I did this the old fashioned way by hand, and may have over mixed. So although the cake was edible, it was not particularly enjoyable. I have posted the recipe and link to the original, but I am not recommending it. I just wanted to share what I had done with my homegrown blueberries. By the way, if you do have a good blueberry recipe (other than blueberry muffins), please do share. It will be most appreciated and I will certainly keep it in mind for the next time.
100g softened butter
175g self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
175g golden caster sugar
6 tablespoons milk
Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Place all ingredients except the berries into a large bowl and beat until smooth. Spread into a lined 18cm cake tin and sprinkle the berries over. Bake for 25 mins until golden.
