Blueberry Lemon Cake

My husband and I are not big fans of fresh blueberry. But we both like food made from blueberry, like jam or cake. So if I buy blueberries from supermarket, it means I will bake something with blueberry.

Preheat oven to 180 degree C.

Ingredients:

Butter 130g

Sugar 120g

Vanilla 1 tsp

Egg 1

Flour 190g

Baking powder 1 tsp

Salt 1/4 tsp

Zest of 1 lemon

Milk 1/2 cup

Blueberry 2 cups

Flour 1 tablespoon

Lemon juice 1 tablespoon

1. Cream butter with sugar till light and fluffy.

2. Add in vanilla. And eggs one by one.

3. Mix fry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt and zest of lemon) together.

4. Add flour and milk into butter mixture alternately. 1/2 flour and 1/2 milk one time.

5. Add 1 tablespoon flour and lemon juice into blueberries. Toss a bit.

6. Place 1/2 batter into baking pan. Over it spread 1/2 blueberries. Then add in the rest batter. And top it with rest blueberries. Light press blueberries into the batter.

The batter is done:

After 60 mins.

Cool down for a while.

I was too lazy to make any glaze. So i just sprinkle icing sugar over the top.

Cake is very moist.

Super Easy Basic Waffles

We bought a waffle maker yesterday. I couldn’t wait to cook some delicious waffles with it. My husband wanted Belgian waffles. So I found some recipes online and tried them. Yet, it was a big failure. Waffles I made tasted like strong baking soda flavor stuff. It’s not easy for me to quit, especially on cooking. I thought I should start with basic ones. And I found a wonder recipe online. Lucky me!

https://www.google.com.sg/amp/www.food.com/amp/recipe/basic-batter-waffles-110683

It’s super easy. No need to beat the egg white with electric mixer.

I just halved the batch.

Ingredients:

Egg 1

Milk 200g

Olive oil  1/6 cup

Flour 1 cup

Baking powder 1/2 tsp

Salt 1/4 tsp

Sugar 1 tsp

Vanilla 1/2 tsp
Preheat waffle maker first. And then prepare the batter.
1. Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a big bowl.

2. Mix egg with milk, oil and vanilla in another bowl.

3. Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Don’t overmix. Stop when they just combine. It’s ok if there’s still flour bumps.

4. Pour batter over preheated waffle maker.

5. Serve with syrup and fruits you like. You can also add nuts or butter.

Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Bake for around 45 mins. Or when it can pass the toothpick test.

It is very similar to the blueberry cake I baked before:

Blueberry Pancake By Oven

Original recipe :
http://m.xiachufang.com/recipe/100460858/
It’s a special way to make pancake, because oven is used instead of pan.

I made some change according to the original recipe above:  

Since I don’t have any weighing machine, I am not sure the accurate weight of all the ingredients I used.

Part A: 

Flour around 80g

Sugar around 30g

Baking soda 1 tsp

Salt 1/8 tsp

Mix all of them well.

  
Part B:

Egg 1

Milk around 150g

Yogurt around 25g

Oil ( I used canola oil) around 25g

Vanilla esscence 1 tsp

Mix them well.
 

1. Pour Part B into Part A. Stir till no flour can be seen.

2.Add some blueberries. Stir again.  

3.Preheat oven with 190 degree C. Before put into the oven, spread some blueberries on the surface of batter. Bake for 45 minutes.

Blueberries will burst and the house is full of fragrance. 
 

  

You can spread some icing sugar if you want.

  


Maple syrup will make it taste better.
