Blueberry Almond Cake fresh from the oven just in time for tea in Dubai! Now that’s the easy part done … the hard part will be to wait for my husband to get home before I can have some! Shouldn’t be too long now … Have a great weekend everyone 🙂
Thank you ‘Entertaining with Beth’ for this wonderful recipe!
All Purpose Flour (sifted): 1 and 1/2 cup
Caster Sugar: 1 cup
Baking Powder: 2 tsp
Salt: 1/4 tsp
Unsalted Butter (melted): 3/4 cups
Vegetable Oil: 1/4 cup
Water: 1/4 cup
Eggs (large): 2
Almond Essence: 1 and 1/2 tsp
Blueberries: 170 grams or as required
Flaked Almonds: enough to cover the top of the cake
Icing Sugar (optional): to garnish
Pre-heat your oven at 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a 10″ cake tin and set aside.
In a bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients together i.e. butter, oil, sugar, eggs, and water.
In a separate bowl, sift and mix all the dry ingredients together i.e. flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture a little at a time. Fold the mixture with the help of a spatula until well-combined.
Add the blueberries to the mixture and carefully fold the mixture one final time.
Pour the mixture in your greased cake tin. Add the flaked almonds on top of the cake mixture.
Gently tap cake tin on your counter to make sure the cake is levelled properly.
Bake in your pre-heated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
