Roberta’s Recipes: British sweets 2 – Blueberry cake

As promised, dear friends, here’s more from my British kitchen – a lovely fruit cake which I only tried for the first time very recently, and it’s quite easy to do!




150g blueberries, 250g flour, 200g caster sugar, 100g butter, 2tsp baking powder, 1 egg, 150ml milk, 30g icing sugar, 1tsp vanilla sugar, salt, oil


Mix the sugar and the butter in a big bowl with a hand mixer or a whisk, then add the egg, the flour, the milk, the vanilla sugar, the baking powder and a dash of salt and stir well until the mixture is creamy. Preheat the oven to 180°C.


Slowly stir in the blueberries with a spoon, then put the mixture in an oiled baking tin and bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes. Dust with icing sugar before serving!


And here’s something VERY entertaining and VERY English for you to watch while having your cake and tea, dear friends: P.G. Wodehouse’s wonderful stories about hapless socialite Bertie Wooster and his clever valet Jeeves…
