Ingredients

  • For the cake
  • 175g butter, softened
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150ml soured cream
  • 375g blueberries
  • For the icing
  • 200g soft cheese
  • 100g icing sugar

Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Butter and line with baking paper the base of a 23cm round cake tin.
    2. Beat together the butter, sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder, and vanilla in a bowl for 2-3 minutes until pale and well mixed. Beat in 4 tablespoons of the soured cream and then stir in half of the blueberries.
    3. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and level it off and bake for 50 minutes or until firm and slightly springy to the touch. Put a sharp knife in it and check that it comes out with no mixture on it to be sure it's cooked through. Cool for 10 minutes then tip out of the tin, remove the paper, and tip back onto a rack to finish cooling.
    4. Beat the soft cheese with the icing sugar and the remaining soured cream until smooth and creamy. Spread over the cake and scatter with the remaining blueberries.
