I was supposed to get a large order of frozen curries to trial on Friday and I had to go through the freezer to make room for them. I realised I had an awful lot of blueberries and decided to bake Todd a delicious blueberry cake with some of them. I also sent half of it over to our friend Doreen, who is celebrating her 86th Birthday this weekend! This is a very old recipe, but fabulously delicious!
There are actually two parts to it. First you have a lovely moist cake, studded with sweet blueberries . . .
It really is delicious, all on it's own . . . especially served slightly warm.
The second part is the delicious brown sugar sauce which you spoon over the cake to serve . . . rich and almost caramel flavoured . . .
In fact I would call this quite simply . . . FABULOUS.
This might be a simple old fashioned cake, but it is anything but ordinary!
*Nan's Blueberry Cake*with a brown sugar sauce
The cake on its own is faabulous, but this delicious brown sugar sauce takes it over the top. I think you will find also that the sauce is good on other things, like ice cream, apple cake, etc.
I hope you will try this! Bon Appetit!
