Easy Japanese Recipes

Blueberry Cake

Blueberry Cake Recipe | JustOneCookbook.com I baked, I baked!  I know it may sound silly, but I rarely make desserts, so when I bake, it’s a big celebration!  Um, what’s the special occasion?  Well, my excuse would be…it is for July 4th (America’s Independence Day) since it’s right around the corner!

There are lots and lots of food blogs dedicated to desserts and for bakers, but I want my blog to be a place where I share all types of savory food, specializing in Japanese food.  I know how to make some desserts, but most of the baked dessert recipes I shared came from other sources (mostly inspired by blogs I visit).  So if you ever wonder how good my dessert would taste since I’m not a baker, don’t worry!!  I only share dessert recipes that my family and friends have tasted and loved! :-)

Blueberry Cake

I saw this delicious blueberry cake at Food Gal.  The author of this blog, Carolyn, is a food and wine writer based in San Francisco Bay Area and on her blog she features the scoop on new restaurants around the Bay Area, interviews with celebrity chefs, and reviews of cookbooks and products.  If you live around San Francisco, you will find her site very useful and fun to read, so check it out.

My family really enjoyed this cake after dinner, and we even had it for breakfast next day (before our road trip to Santa Cruz).  It’s incredibly moist and fluffy inside.  I’ll definitely make it a few more times before fresh blueberries become out of season.  Enjoy!

    Oh yes, Nami you have baked a cake! You sounded like a ‘out of a thing’ if cakes baked out from your kitchen. Baked a cake for a celebration is a good thing. Blueberries cake does sound to be a delicious cake. I do would love to have a slice from you now.

    Hi Nami! It’s been too long – I’m so behind on your posts! (let’s not mention my own….)
    That cake looks delicious and so too everything else you’ve been posting – yaki onigiri, pork belly etc.. all looks so good and it’s making me hungry :) Love the way you styled the photos of the finished cake too! Unfortunately blueberries are so expensive in Sydney these days (more than 5aud per punnet) and you never know if they’ll be sweet but i think frozen could be a good option if I was to make this cake.

    Oh my God! You baked! That’s so cool… it’s not often I saw a cake over here :D It looks wonderful – so pale and fluffy. I can imagine it didn’t last very long, lol :D By the way, I read a great tip recently which was supposed to stop fruit sinking in a cake, but I’ll be damned if I can remember what it was now… oops :( If I think of it I’ll tell you!

    Yay! You baked!! I love seeing sweets on your blog. This cake looks amazing and so perfect for the 4th. My husband loves blueberry and would just love this. Too bad he is in Israel this summer while Im in the states. I guess I would just have to eat his piece too!

    Your cake looks very pleasing and scrumptious. I love cakes like this one. Coffee or tea in the morning with your blueberry cake would be ideal breakfast!

    Great pictures – really good. The cake looks super too – I love fruit in baked goods, and blueberries are one of my favs. I’m not much of a baker, either (luckily my wife is!), though I do enjoy it from time to time (it’s not baking, but I make killer chocolate mousse). Congrats on this – anything you want to share with us (savory or sweet) is super.

    I can sense your excitement each time you bake & that’s contagious! Makes me want to go to the kitchen and join the fun. Coincidently, the first cake I baked when we arrived in Minnesota was a mix berries cake. I don’t mind making another one again after seeing yours.

    Hi, Nami! I’ve been in Idaho for the last week (spending 4th of July here)–thought I’d pop in to see what you’ve been cooking up. Congrats on baking, yay! Your blueberry cake looks great and so perfect for today. One of my favorite fruits to use in baking. Have a great 4th!

    Hi Nami,
    Are you using spatula to mix the butter ,sugar and then egg york? Not using wire whisk ?

    Reply
    • Nami April 24, 2013, 9:08 am

      Hi POH! I kept my stand mixer for meringue, so I had to use a regular mixing bowl. The batter is pretty thick so I used the spatula. You can use a wire whisk if you like. :)
