For the cake
– 250g self-raising flour
– 2 tsp baking powder
– 250g butter
– 250g caster sugar
– 4 large eggs
– Drops of lemon extract
– 500g fresh blueberries
– 20g flaked almonds
For the topping
– 140g softened butter
– 280g icing sugar
– 2 tsp lemon juice
Preheat your oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 23cm round cake tin. In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, butter, and caster sugar until combined. Gradually add the eggs, beating well between each addition.
Fold in the blueberries and lemon extract, then spoon the mixture into the prepared tin. Sprinkle over the flaked almonds. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
To make the topping, beat together the butter, icing sugar and lemon juice until light and fluffy. Spread over the cooled cake and sprinkle with a few more flaked almonds. Serve with fresh blueberries.
This Jamie Oliver-inspired Blueberry Cake is the perfect way to indulge your sweet tooth. With its light and fluffy texture and sweet-tart topping, this cake has a soft and creamy, yet smoky flavour due to the addition of lemon extract and flaked almonds. And with the simple yet delicious topping, it’s sure to be a hit with family and friends!
This recipe builds on the traditional British delight – lemon drizzle cake – by adding some fresh blueberries for extra colour and flavour. For those looking for something a little different, this cake can also be made with strawberries instead of blueberries.
