Blueberry and Lemon Drizzle Cakes
This fresh and fruity Blueberry Loaf Recipe is so tasty and light! A sweet sponge is topped with crunchy Lemon Glaze for a great texture.
You will need:
- 100g Butter or Margarine
- 100g Caster Sugar
- 2 Medium Eggs
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
- 100g Self Raising Flour
- 100g Fresh Blueberries
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- 3 Tbsp of Icing Sugar
Cream together your Butter and Sugar together until well combined. Then add the eggs and mix in thoroughly.
Add the Vanilla Essence and Flour and mix until you have a creamy cake batter. Finally add the Blueberries and stir gently into the mix.
Pour your cake batter into Cupcake Cases or Mini Loaf Cases – I got these from Asda! Bake in the centre of a pre-heated oven at 180degrees for approx 25 mins.
While the loaves are in the oven, make your Lemon Drizzle. Pour the juice of 1 Lemon into a small bowl, add the Icing Sugar and stir into a glaze.
Remove the loaves from the oven, they should be a lovely golden brown colour. Now pour the Lemon Drizzle over the loaves while they are still warm, it will soak into the cake and dry into a crunchy topping.
Now all that’s left to do is to serve and enjoy!
