Blueberry and Lemon Cake

This blueberry and lemon cake is not only beautiful to look at but also absolutely delicious. Using only 9 ingredients and less than 1 hour of your time, this cake is super easy to make and sure to impress your friends and family. The bright lemon zest is balanced beautifully by the juicy blueberries and the sweetness of the cake.

To begin with, melt the margarine (or vegan butter). Separately, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Mix the melted margarine with the soy milk and aquafaba and combine the liquid ingredients with the dry ingredients. Poor the cake batter into a greased cake tin. Now for the fun part! Mix the blueberries with lemon zest and sugar and sprinkle them on top of the batter. Bake the cake at 180°C fan for about 40 minutes until it’s golden in colour. To test if it’s done, poke it with a skewer. If the skewer comes out clean your cake is ready.

The blueberries will sink into the batter while baking, creating juicy and sweet explosions in your mouth when you eat the cake. While I love using fresh blueberries (for extra juiciness), you can also use frozen berries for this cake. There’s not extra steps required if you use frozen berries and they’re a great alternative if fresh berries aren’t in season or you’re baking on a budget. I usually serve the cake by itself but it’s equally delicious alongside coconut yoghurt or vanilla ice cream.
