Blueberry Lemon Cake

We made this blueberry lemon cake and it turned out delicious! It was moist and sweet - and everything you'd want in a blueberry cake.

Here's the original recipe: http://natashaskitchen.com/2017/03/10/blueberry-lemon-cake/


See the blueberriness!

Yummy slice





Ingredients:

2 large eggs
1 cup (210 grams) granulated sugar
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
1/2 cup light olive oil or vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups (260 grams) all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 medium lemon (zest and juice), divided
1/2 Tbsp corn starch
16 oz (450g) fresh blueberries

Directions:

1. Beat 2 eggs and 1 cup sugar with whisk attachment on high speed until the mixture is lightened in color and thick.
2. Add 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup oil, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp salt and whisk on low speed until well combined.
3. Whisk together the 2 cups flour with 2 tsp baking powder then add to batter 1/3 at a time, whisking to incorporate between each addition. Finally, add 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice and 1/2 Tbsp lemon zest.
4. Rinse blueberries and drain well. In a medium bowl, toss blueberries with 1/2 Tbsp corn starch and 1 tsp lemon juice, stirring until well combined and no dry white cornstarch remains
5. Pour half of the batter into prepared springform pan and spread evenly with a spatula. Top with half of the blueberries. Spread with remaining batter then sprinkle the rest of the blueberries evenly over the top, pushing them slightly into the batter (about halfway). Bake at 375˚F for 45 to 55 minutes (mine was perfect at 55 min), or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean without wet batter. Let cake rest in the pan 15-20 minutes then remove ring and cool until room temp or just warm.
