MELT IN YOUR MOUTH BERRY CAKE
I love berries, and this cake never disappoints. Simple and delicious, this blueberry cake is moist and easy to whip up for unexpected guests or for the lunch box. Very versatile, I have also used fresh raspberries and blackberries to change up the flavours.
*1/2 cup soft butter
*1/2 cup sugar
*1/4 tsp salt
*1 tsp vanilla extract
*2 egg yolks
*1 1/2 cups plain flour
*1 tsp baking powder
*1/3 cup milk
*2 egg white
*1/4 cup sugar
*2 cups berries (of your choice)
Preheat oven to 150 degrees> Grease and flour a loaf pan.
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy, adding salt, vanilla and egg yolks. Beat until creamy.
Combine flour and baking powder and add alternately with the milk to the egg yolk mixture. Lightly coat berries in flour and add to the mix.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add 1/4 cup of sugar, 1 tbsp at a time and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
Fold the egg white mix softly into the batter. Pour into prepared tin and bake for 50 minutes or until cooked through and golden.
This cake is light, fluffy and moreish, and a huge lunchbox hit and a favourite for afternoon tea, my boys devour it.
Hope you enjoy
