LEMON BLUEBERRY CAKE

Lemon Blueberry Cake!

This Lemon Blueberry Cake happened simply as a result of dad getting these humongous lemons from our farm. Which, as always, led me to wonder, what should I bake with them? Well, as you can see, I went with the most obvious option, haha! And so I baked a cake. But yes, I used dried blueberries, you can use fresh if you have access to any or simply skip the blueberries and make yourself this luscious lemon cake. Totally up to you! I believe that baking should be fun and flexible. And that’s the reason I started baking and posting recipes. To promote and encourage flexible baking that’s easy and fun!

I rehydrated the dried blueberries using warm water and letting them soak for 30 mins or so. I drained the water, rinsed them once, and then used them. This way you can get rid of the impurities.

The liquid I opted for was yogurt (dahi/curd). You can also use the same amount of buttermilk or even just milk.

Servings: 1 3"x9" loaf
Author: Pratty and Food
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour (maida)
  • 1/3 cup yogurt (curd/dahi)
  • 1/3 cup sugar, powder it
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2-3 tablespoons dried blueberries, soaked in warm water for 30-60 mins (if using fresh blueberries, use 1/4 cup or 1/3 cup)
  • 1/3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil or melted butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 175C.

  2. Combine the flour and baking powder in a bowl and set it aside. 

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, oil (or butter), lemon zest, and lemon juice. Once the sugar is well incorporated, add in the yogurt (curd/dahi) and combine.

  4. Prepare your baking tray at this point. You can use a small round baking pan or a loaf tin. I used a loaf one. Grease it with a bit of oil or butter. Then sprinkle some flour over it and tap it around then remove the excess flour. 

  5. Carefully and slowly, add in the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Fold in the batter slowly, and mix only till it's just combined and there are no lumps. Avoid over-mixing!

  6. Drain the blueberries then add them to the batter. Give it a gentle mix.

  7. Pour the batter into the prepared baking tray and bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or till the top is golden and the edges are golden-brown. 

  8. Insert a skewer/pin/knife to check if it's done. If it comes out clean, it's done! Let it cool down before you de-mould and slice. Enjoy!
