As usual I always like to check what was left in the pantry since my last visit to the supermarket. I’m sure you do the same too, right? Then I saw half a packet of self-raising lying there, a few lemons and some frozen blueberries in my freezer. I suddenly remember that I’ve not baked a blueberry cake for quite some time (my last baked was in Nov 2019 – Blueberry Swiss Roll). Yes blueberry again … my weakness for blueberry 😀 So I baked this easy Blueberry Lemon Cake with full of lemony flavour. The sweetness is just right and the cake is soft and moist and the studded blueberries within made the cake all the more delicious. The cake tastes even better the next day being kept in an airtight container at room temperature. So perfect for our breakfast
