Blueberry & Granola Loaf Cake

blueberryloafcakebadge

Along with bananas, I often have other fruit that needs using up as it starts to over ripen and rather than waste it by throwing them in the bin, I make cakes of course 🙂 Sometimes when I buy blueberries for Jenson he starts off enjoying them, but then suddenly announces he doesnt like them anymore – grrrrrrr! Therefore, I am often left thinking up recipes that involve those small blue berries.

I decided to incorporate them into a loaf cake and to add some texture to it I decided to sprinkle some granola cereal across the top of the cake before it was cooked, as I had some in my cupboard. This proved to work very well and so here is how I made my  Blueberry and Granola Loaf Cake.

45 min
Ingredients
  1. 250g self raising flour
  2. 115g unsalted butter at room temp
  3. 200g caster sugar
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 100g lemon or vanilla yogurt
  6. 25g granola
  7. 200g blueberries
Instructions
  1. pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160 oC (fan)
  2. grease and line a 1lb loaf tin
  3. cream together the butter and sugar for about 5 minutes until pale and creamy
  4. meanwhile take a spoonful of the flour and in a bowl cover the blueberries with it - this will hopefully prevent the berries from sinking into the bottom of the cake as it is cooking
  5. add the eggs and a spoonful of the flour and beat the mixture for a couple of minutes
  6. Add the remaining flour, and the yogurt and mix until combined - being careful not to over do it
  7. Then lightly fold in the blueberries
  8. Pour into the loaf tin and smooth over the top
  9. scatter the granola over the top
  10. Cook for about 45 - 50 minutes until risen, golden and cooked right through
  11. Allow to cool and then remove from the tin and place on a wire rack
  12. Enjoy with a hot cup of tea

Ths would work equally aswell with other berries such as raspberries or blackberies and is always a great way of using fruit which is starting to go a bit squishy!! And goes down very well with a good cup of tea!
