HOW TO MAKE FRESH BLUEBERRY CAKE
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
Step 2: In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
Step 3: In another bowl, beat the shortening until creamy.
Step 4: Stir the shortening into the flour mixture alternately with milk.
Step 5: Beat well for about 2 minutes until fully mixed. Then, add in the egg and beat for a minute.
Step 6: In a separate bowl, combine the lemon zest and blueberries. Fold this into the batter.
Step 7: Transfer the batter into the prepared pan.
Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 50 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
I prefer fresh blueberries but if you are using the frozen ones don’t thaw.
It is so much better to use fresh lemon juice and lemon zest for this recipe.
