Equipment

  • Bundt tin

Ingredients

  • 220 g butter
  • 450 g golden caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 350 g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • 350 g lemon yoghurt
  • 100 g fresh blueberries plus extra for decorating
  • 500 g icing sugar
  • A few teaspoons of water to get a smooth thick yet still 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. (the best thing to do with detailed Nordic Ware tins)
  • In the mixer cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time.
  • Add the yoghurt into the butter/sugar/egg mixture and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl measure out and sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  • Mix the flour mix in slowly until all the flour has disappeared.
  • Add the mixture to the prepared bundt cake tin.
  • 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.
  • 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 for turning out.
  • Make sure the cake is cold 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 polka dot sprinkles and then served with fresh blueberries.
