A wonderful easy Blueberry and Elderflower Bundt cake. Bundt cakes are super easy cakes to make and perfect for sharing at events or parties.

This is a great spring time bundt cake and tastes fresh and not too sweet.
The blueberries are hole and make a good squishy juicy bit as you eat it. The cooked blueberries inside go slightly gooey which is an absolute joy to dig into inside the finished cake. Dust the blueberries in flour to stop them sinking in the cake. Id’ also recommend adding in half the mix, dotting in the blueberries and adding the remaining mix. This will help the blueberries from sinking and sticking to the cake tin.

Blueberry and Elderflower Bundt cake

Blueberry and elderflower are a great flavour combination. The sweetness of the elderflower and the slight tartness of the blueberries is lovely. The rest of the cake is very simple so not to complicate the flavours.

Bundt cakes are moist cakes thanks to the yoghurt. It will last a few days in air tight container too. A slice also warms up in the microwave really well. Delicious served with custard or ice cream.

How many servings?

Normally this size of bundt cake I would say has about 12 portions. They are big portions. If you were having a big family event or a party I would say you could easily get 20 portions out of the recipe. The most slices I have ever got out of a single bundt cake 35!

Ingredients
  

  • 220 g butter
  • 450 g white caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 350 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons of bottlegreen elderflower cordial
  • 350 g Blueberry yoghurt
  • 150 g fresh blueberries plus extra for decorating

For the icing;

  • Icing sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of elderflower cordial
  • A few tablespoons of water to get a smooth runny consistency

Instructions
 

  • -Preheat the oven to gas 150 (fan) 160 (regular).
  • -Grease the tin well. I use melted butter and paint it on with a pastry brush and then I dust with plain flour which helps to find any places on the tin I’ve missed to grease. (good on this tin as it is so detailed).
  • -In the mixer cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  • -Add the eggs one at a time.
  • -In a separate bowl measure out and sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  • -Add the yoghurt and elderflower cordial into the butter/sugar/egg mixture and mix well.
  • -Mix the flour mix in slowly until all the flour has disappeared.
  • -Put half the mixture in the tin.
  • -In the remaining half mix in the fresh blueberries.(fresh blueberries will sink so adding them to the top half will stop them sinking to the bottom and ruining the decorative bundt shape)
  • -Add the second half of the mix with the blueberries in to the tin.
  • -Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. When the cake pulls away from the edge of the tin the cake is ready.
  • -Allow the cake to cool in the tin before turning out.
  • -Allow the cake to cool before icing.
  • -To decorate the cake I mixed roughly 500g icing sugar with 3 tablespoons of elderflower cordial. It needed to be runnier so I added a few drops of water at a time to get to the smooth runny consistency required. I covered the cake with the icing and then decorated with a few more fresh blueberries.

      The elderflower is a subtle taste but it is still there. Blueberries work so well and are so juicy in the cake. So delicious 🙂

    I may make this tomorrow, but I have Mr Fitzpatrick’s ‘Bramley Apple and Elderflower’ cordial. I wonder if that’ll work with the blueberries…5 stars

      Apple, elderflower and blueberries would be amazing! Might need more than 3 tablespoons but it would work. I’m so hungry thinking about it 🙂 I might have to invest in some of this magical cordial. I’m making a bundt next week with spiced berry cordial, I’m sure it will taste great!
