Are you ready for your life to change?
It can happen in 30 short minutes, if you want it to…. and believe me, you do.
It will happen in the form of a flaky sugar-crisp top concealing a fluffy, jammy goldmine of blueberries and cake.
All that with only 5 ingredients…
Okay, well 5 ingredients plus water… and optional cinnamon and lemon juice, but I just count those as life essentials, not necessarily ingredients (especially the cinnamon).
Individual Blueberry Cakes- 5 ingredients, 30 minutes
makes enough for 4-5 medium ramekins
2 cups (10 oz / 280g) blueberries
1/3 cup + 3 tbsp (6 oz + 1.5 oz / 65g + 45g ) sugar
1/3 cup (80 ml) whipping cream
2/3 cup (3 oz / 85g) self-raising flour*
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Put the blueberries in a bowl, with 1/2 cup (125 ml) of water, the 1/3 cup (6 oz / 65g) of sugar (and cinnamon and lemon juice if you want them). Stir until the blueberries are coated with the mixture. Divide between 4 or 5 medium ramekins.
In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 tbsp (1.5oz / 45g) of sugar, the egg and cream. Add the flour and stir until just combined, don’t over mix it! Pour the mixture into the ramekins and sprinkle the remaining 1tbsp of sugar on top of the batter (or you could sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture onto the batter here…I highly recommend it!). Place the ramekins on a baking tray (to stop juice dripping everywhere in the oven).
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until well risen and golden brown.
* or just sub for an equal volume of all purpose flour and add 1 tsp of baking powder
