Vanilla and Blueberry Sponge Cake

So this Sunday I decided to make muffins with my little helper, the process was fun but the muffins were a fail, hubby threw his in the bin :-(, but me being me went straight back into the kitchen to make myself feel better and made a simple blueberry cake to get the horrid hard muffin taste out of our mouths! Pleased to say the cake was a big success soft, moist and was eaten in no time. I want to encourage those like me who struggle with baking not to give up, say after me I will be a good baker :-)


  • 4 oz self raising flour
  • 4 oz butter
  •  2 eggs
  • 4 oz sugar 
  • 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries
  • one teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • powdered sugar for dusting

  1. cream the butter and the sugar 
  2. add the eggs, flour and vanilla 
  3. then stir in the blueberries 
  4. add to a cake tin and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until a knife comes out clean
  5. enjoy warm with a cup of tea!!

What advice do the awesome bakers have for me?
