Eggless Blueberry Lemon Cake

Don’t you love how long the days are right now. Like I can go for a walk at 9 pm and it would still be totally bright. It just makes me so happy. Such long days make me feel like there’s actually a lot of time to test recipes and do other blog and house stuff. Well obviously hours in a day never change but when sun shines  bright till 10 pm, it kinds of feels like that.

Lots of sunshine calls for fresh flavors like the ones in this Blueberry Lemon Cake. This is a match made in heaven and right now is the perfect time to use these 2 in desserts. Berries are in season and lemon is perfect for summer, so there really can’t be a better time. I made this cake for my parents anniversary 2 days back. We didn’t really do much that day but of course I had to make this cake. How can I let go of any birthday or anniversary without a homemade cake! At first I thought of making a chocolate cake since my dad loves chocolates (that’s where I get my chocolate addiction from!!) but my mom isn’t fond of chocolate and since it was their anniversary, I thought I should probably make something that they both like and that’s how I decided on this blueberry lemon cake.

Blueberry Lemon Cake

This is a simple eggless blueberry yogurt cake topped with lemon cream cheese frosting. I made this eggless because I do get a lot of requests to post eggless cakes and I know I don’t do that often. So I hope all of you who love eggless bakes like this cake. To get a nice blueberry flavor in my cake, I pureed some fresh blueberries with plain yogurt and added to the batter. And of course I also added some blueberries in the end too.

This blueberry lemon cake is really easy to make and tastes so refreshing! My mom ate 2 big slices and that proves that the cake was pretty good, she is not a sweet person otherwise!

Then add milk and mix. Add the remaining flour alternating with milk and starting and ending with flour. Do not over-mix.

Fold in the blueberries. I tossed the blueberries in some flour so that they don’t sink to the bottom.

Pour batter into the 2 prepared pans. I added some extra blueberries on top, this is optional. Bake at 350 F degrees for around 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

While the cake is in the oven, make the frosting. Beat together butter and cream cheese till smooth and creamy.

Add powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time and mixing well after each addition.

Add lemon juice, lemon zest and lemon extract and mix well till everything is well combined and frosting is smooth. You may add little heavy cream or milk if you think the frosting isn’t too spreadable.

Once the cake is done, take it out of the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Once the cake layers have completely cooled down, place one of the layers on your serving plate or turntable and apply a generous amount of frosting on top.

    The cake looks amazingly beautiful both from inside and outside 🙂 I would love to try this cake for my sister’s birthday who loves blueberries. Can we half the ingredients if we want to bake in one 6inch round pan? Thanks!

  4. Hi Manali
    Such a lip smacking recipe.I really wanna try this.
    I have few questions
    1st as I don’t get fresh blueberries can I use ready compote to make blueberry curd
    2nd can I mix cream cheese with whipped cream and use. If yes then what will be the ratio of cream and cream cheese.
    3rd can I add lemon juice and rind to the whipped cream
    Thanx

    1. you can try ready made compote. Hmm mixing cream cheese with whipped cream, sure you can but I can’t tell you the ratio since that will be a different frosting and I haven’t tried it. yes you can add lemon juice to whipped cream, no problem
