lemon-blueberry-cake-3

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour gluten free, if needed
  • 1 cup sugar white, brown, coconut, or sugar free subs * See notes
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 5 tablespoon oil of choice canola, vegetable, or any neutral flavored oil
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup frosting of choice optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line an 8-inch cake pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients and mix well. Add your wet ingredients and mix until combined. Fold through your blueberries.
  • Transfer the cake batter into the lined cake pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan completely, before frosting, if desired.

Notes

For a layer cake, double the ingredients. For a triple layer cake, triple the ingredients.

Frosting is optional. This cake tastes delicious sans frosting.

* For a sugar free cake, replace the sugar with monk fruit sweetener or erythritol. 

TO STORE: Blueberry Lemon Cake needs to be stored in the fridge, as it will spoil at room temperature. Keep cake in a sealed container or covered in plastic wrap. Storing the cake this way will ensure the cake will keep for at least 5 days. 

TO FREEZE: Leftover cake slices can be placed in a ziplock bag and stored in the freezer for up to 2 months.
