Lemon blueberry cake

This lemon blueberry cake has the perfect balance between citrus and sweet. Soft, and delicate this cake can be served warm or cold with a dollop of whipped cream.

  • Method

    1. Preparation

      Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 20cm round cake pan with oil and line with baking paper.

    2. Batter

      Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar together in a medium bowl, until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until combined. Add the yoghurt and lemon zest and beat to combine. Sift in the flour and baking powder and stir to combine. Add the blueberries in the batter and gently mix. Then once the cake is in the pan, just before you place it in the oven to bake, carefully pop more blueberries on the top of the cake to decorate.

    3. Baking

      Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until golden brown and a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre. Set aside for 15 minutes, to cool slightly in the pan. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

    4. Serving

      To serve, dust with icing sugar and serve with cream, if desired.
