That Special Cake - Blueberry Yogurt Cake


I love homemade cakes: delicious, beautiful and simple cakes made by us for Mum’s birthday party, for a friend, for Easter, for Valentine’s Day, served on a nice cake plate because these little details make a difference!

Today, in the various cake shops available to us, we can choose dream cakes which perfectly brighten up our table. But, sometimes, we also want to make ourselves a special, tasty cake without that wow effect.


So, here’s a gorgeous cake recipe that will make a difference for your guests! I already posted this recipe in 2015 but I have decided to publish it again. This time the decoration is different and the taste is slightly different too. I made it with blueberries instead of the wild fruits (strawberries, raspberries and blackcurrants) I used previously. I made this cake in early February for no particular reason other than to give us a special treat because that day I had received good news that made me very happy…




Blueberry Yogurt Cake

Ingredients:
4 eggs
1 blueberry yogurt with fruit pieces
2 yogurt pots of sugar (or 3 if you like very sweet cakes)
1 yogurt pot of oil (sunflower)
3 yogurt pots of self-raising flour
100 g blueberries

Preparation:
1 - Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC.
2 - Add the eggs, yogurt, sugar, oil and flour to a large bowl.
3 - Mix well.
4 - Add the blueberries towards the end and don’t mix much after doing so.
5 - Place in a greased mould that has been sprinkled with flour.
6 - Bake in the oven for about 40 mins.
7 - Allow to cool in the mould.

Topping:
250 ml cream
1 tablespoon of icing sugar
200g blueberries
Mint leaves to taste

Whip the cream with a little sugar. When ready, pour over the cake and decorate with the blueberries and mint.

  17. Que tentação deliciosa tu nos apresentas. Digo 'tentação' porque precisamos tomar muito cuidado com os doces! (Risos) Os brasileiros, sempre espirituosos, chamam tal tentação de 'engordiet' (significando 'que engorda'), fazendo uma paródia do produto 'diet'. Essa delícia me lembrou mesmo um chá da tarde, e o outono que já chega por aqui completou o sentimento. Preciso ir para onde o sol está indo. Um abraço
