Comfort when it's ugly outside {Blueberry Breakfast Cake}

Because I hugely believe in comfort food (My life consists of comfort food...never mind) and the weather definitely requests comfy, cozy breakfasts!
Here we go!

Blueberry Breakfast Cake (with Blueberries from here!!)
(Recipe adapted from here)

  • 1/2 cup (115gr) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (170gr) + 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups (240gr) flour (set aside 1/4 cup to toss with the berries)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries (mine were actually frozen and it worked just as well) (serving: about two servings that fill your hands if you form a cup with them)
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) buttermilk or milk mixed with either white vinegar or lemon juice
I also found that the cake didn't turn out as sweet as I had it expected to be so for a second round I would add 1/3 cup (80 ml) syrup but that's optional.

One last time turning this beloved kitchen into a mess ;)
And it was a sunny day!!

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Beat butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt and add, alternating with your buttermilk. Add syrup if you want.
Toss remaining flour and berries together and add it to your dough.
Fill into an oven proof dish and bake for about 35-50 minutes (the original time said 35 minutes but mine definitely needed a bit more time. Just check with a wooden tooth pick)

Serve with cream, more berries and syrup ♥
