Blueberry Lemon Semolina Cake

Tis the season in which my appetite for fall fruit begins to peter out and the spring berries aren't here yet so I rummage through the freezer and scrounge up any remaining fruit or berries from summertime.  I found blueberries, which led to me adapting this recipe and making a lemon blueberry semonlina teacake.  It is really good and not too sweet! 

Blueberry Lemon Semolina Cake

80g AP flour
200g semolina flour
200g white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
150g yogurt, plain or vanilla or lemon
3 eggs
⅔ cup melted butter
300g blueberries
juice of half a lemon
shaved rind of half a lemon

Combine the dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet in another bowl.  Mix the two together and stir in the blueberries.  Bake in a greased springform pan or muffin tins at 350 for 20-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Enjoy!

The Lemon Anise Tea Loaf we made a few weeks ago, suggested serving with a dollop of whipped cream and blueberries... this would combine in the blueberries.  Looks delicious, Floyd. ... I am loving it!

Yummy Baking,

Diane

Floyd, I'm with you on the fruits available this time of year.   Apples, bananas, then more apples, then more bananas.  I've been baking quick breads with my son and this looks like a nice one to try.    I'll have to scrounge up some blueberries or something to substitute.  Looks like a great recipe and love the color of the cake.  -Varda

Blueberries and lemon.  I LOOOOVE that combo.  And I bet the texture of this is exactly how I am thinking it would be.  If it is, I will have to add this to my summer indulgence list.

Thanks Floyd!

P.S. You will be blown away by our summer blueberry harvest season in the Lower Mainland.  When comes time, I know the BEST and cheapest farms to buy by the flat out here.  Just ask.
