littletree bakes...lemon curd and blueberry sponge

Another yummy 'bake' for you guys today...This cake is so simple plus super tasty and zingy from the lemon and blueberries...although I still can't figure out a way to make the blueberries not sink in the sponge mix, anyone know of a way? It still tasted pretty good anyhow, the perfect little slice to have with an afternoon tea or coffee...

  • 4oz Soft Butter or Marg
  • 4oz Caster Sugar
  • 4oz Self Raising Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Blueberries
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • Lemon Curd
  • Icing Sugar to decorate

Let's Bake!
  • Preheat your oven to 190c. Grease and line a round tin (roughly 20cm).
  • In a large bowl mix the Butter and Sugar until fluffy and lighter in colour. 
  • Gradually add in the Eggs, Vanilla and Flour until you have a thick fluffy mix.
  • Carefully stir a handful of blueberries and the lemon zest through the mix and then spread evenly in the tin.
  • Dollop a few half teaspoons of Lemon Curd randomly on top of the mix and swirl through with the a skewer. 
  • Scatter a few more blueberries on top and push into the mix slightly.
  • Pop in the oven for about 30-40mins or until golden and cooked through. Check with a skewer to be extra sure.
  • Leave to cool before dusting with the icing sugar.
  • Put the kettle on, make a cuppa and enjoy!
