Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup of yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup of neutral oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups of SR flour
  • zest of half a lemon
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 punnet bluberries

Icing

  • 1.5 cups of icing sugar (sifted)
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice

Method

Set oven to 160 fan, grease bundt tin or ring tin. Place 1/2 a punnet of blueberries in the bottom of the tin.

Whip eggs and sugar until pale and thick, this will take at least 4 minutes at high speed, don’t rush it.

Add yoghurt, oil and vanilla into the bowl of the stand mixer and stir until just mixed. Don’t worry if the mixture looks a little imperfect, so long as you don’t see big chunks of yoghurt, and everything is dispersed, it’s fine.

Add flour, and mix until just combined. Remove the bowl from the mixture and stir through juice and zest and remaining berries with a spatula.

Spoon into tin, covering the blueberries and  bake for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

    Oooohh my gosh, Chathurika! I just made this and its divine. Harima shoke! Its incredibly moist and the lemon tang is obvious throughout. When you bit into blueberries… wow! The crust is lovely and crusty… how do you describe crust?!
    I’m running from a little munchkin who wants more now that I’ve fed her a piece! Hahhaa!
    I also added orange juice with the lemon juice. It was a tad more than 1 tbs!! So yes. The combination of citrus was perfect. Well, I thought so, anyway!
    Thank you for this. Made my day!

    Glaze: in a small bowl, mix together confectioners’ sugar, lemon juice and corn syrup until smooth. Drizzle over top of cake and let it roll down the sides.
