the best blueberry cake recipe
August 4, 2009 § 2 Comments
This is the best recipe I’ve found for anything blueberry. It’s an old Gourmet magazine recipe from 1984! I’ve tried dozens of different recipes as I have my own blueberry bushes so I’m always looking for ways to use them.
For the blueberry mixture
2 cups blueberries, 2/3 c sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp grated lemon rind, 1/4 c fresh lemon juice, 1 Tbl flour, 3 Tbl unsalted butter, melted
For the batter
1 c flour, 1/2 c sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, 2 large egg yolks, 1/4 c milk, 1 Tbl unsalted butter,melted
make the blueberry mixture: spread the blueberries in the bottom of a buttered 9-inch round cake pan. In a bowl blend the sugar, cinnamon, lemon rind, lemon juice and flour and sprinkle this over the blueberries. Drizzle the melted butter on top.
Make the batter: mix together the flour ( the original recipe says sift but I rarely do this) sugar, baking powder, salt, stir in the egg yolks, milk, and butter, stir until smooth. Drop onto the blueberry mixture and bake in a 425 degree oven for 20 minute, or until brown and bubbly.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
