Sew White Lemon and Blueberry Bundt Cake 1

A simple pleasure in life is a slice of delicious homemade cake with a cup of tea. My latest bundt cake is a super mix of lemon and blueberries but isn’t too sweet. I love bundt cakes as they are so simple to make and look beautiful straight of the tin.

Lemon and Blueberry Bundt Cake
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Ingredients
  • 220g butter
  • 450g golden caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 350g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • 350g lemon yoghurt
  • 100g fresh blueberries plus extra for decorating
  • 500g icing sugar
  • A few teaspoons of water to get a smooth thick yet still runny consistency
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to gas 150 (fan) 160 (regular).
  2. 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. (the best thing to do with detailed Nordic Ware tins)
  3. In the mixer cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time.
  5. Add the yoghurt into the butter/sugar/egg mixture and mix well.
  6. In a separate bowl measure out and sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  7. Mix the flour mix in slowly until all the flour has disappeared.
  8. Add the mixture to the prepared bundt cake tin.
  9. Stud the blueberries in to the cake just so you can still see them – they will sink so you don’t need to push them down.
  10. 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.
  11. Allow the cake to cool in the tin before for turning out.
  12. Make sure the cake is cold before icing.
  13. 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 polka dot sprinkles and then served with fresh blueberries.

      I agree about the centre hole it makes dressing the final cake up so easy as you can just fill it with fruit and hey presto beautiful cake 🙂
