If there was ever a cake made for breakfast time, this is it.  Filled to bursting with white chocolate chips and juicy blueberries you'll be hard pressed to find a more decident breakfast treat.

Blueberry White Chocolate Cake

The soured cream in this cake creates a moistness like no other. I ate this cake over the space of a week and it stayed so squishy and moist.  I have to admit, this is one of my very favorite loaf cakes I've ever made. I can't wait to try it out with forraged blackberries over the next few weeks.

I hope you enjoy this cake as much as I did. In fact, I'm off to make another one for the weekend. Happy Baking.

Blueberry White Chocolate Cake

Ingredients:
  • 100g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 150g golden caster sugar
  • 2 large, free range eggs
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g self raising flour

Cooking Directions:
  1. Line a loaf tin with baking parchment and preheat the oven to 175°C.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Turn the mixer down to low and add the eggs in one at a time, beating well between each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  3. Add half of the flour, the baking powder and half of the soured cream and beat to combine. Add the remaining flour and soured cream and mix again. Stir through half of the blueberries and all of the white chocolate chips, pour the batter into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 1hr - 1hr 15minutes.
  4. Allow to cool in the tin for 20 minutes before transfering the cake to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  5. When the cake is cooled, make the frosting. Whip the cream cheese and icing sugar together until creamy and then spread over the top of the cake. Scatter with the remaining blueberries and serve.

  1. Man this cake looks good! Now I feel sad that I used my blueberries last night in an inferior cake. I'll definitely bookmark this to try out another time, thanks! I also completely agree about the addition of sour cream to cakes. It was one of my baking revelations last year.
