Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Cake
Lemon and Blueberry is a sensational blending of flavours..especially with PEI Fresh Blueberries!
6 Tblsp Butter, Softened
1 Cup Sugar
1 ½ Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
¼ Tsp Salt
½ Cup Milk
1 Cup Fresh Blueberries, Washed
1 ½ Tblsp Lemon Zest (grated rind)
1 Tsp Lemon Juice
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Grease & dust with flour a loaf or Bundt pan.
In a mixer fitted with a paddle, cream the butter and the sugar.
Add the eggs, and mix.
Sift together the flour, baking powder & salt.
Add the dry ingredients, alternately with the milk, to the butter mixture. Mix completely. Then add in the blueberries, lemon & juice. Stir carefully, so as not to crush the berries.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
**Hint for even baking- Half-way through, open oven and rotate cake or cakes, front to back, or turn round cake 180 degrees. **
*Note- In Summer, when blueberries are in season and at their best, this is a great recipe to multiply and freeze the finished cakes for later.
