Blueberry cake recipes

Tried a couple of methods to do blue berry cakes. I can summarise that there are two which are worth a go.

A) Bad Day Blueberry Cake recipe- when you could still do while you have little energy, with almost guaranteed achievement

B) Good Day
Blueberry Cake recipe. Need a bit more work, but you could always cheap by getting an electric mixer.

Bad Day Blueberry Cake recipeIngredients

  1. A pack of cake mix (plain or victoria)- these can be bought at supermarkets. From my experience, the more "basic the recipe", the better it is.
  2. Blueberries- Exact amount depends on how much batter you get from the cake mix. I go by volume- add up 1/3 by volume.
  3. Eggs, water, and sometimes cooking oil.


  1. Follow directions on the cake mix batter
  2. Add in blueberries
  3. Bake according to instructions on cake mix batter.

Good Day Blueberry Cake recipe

  • 2 Eggs, seperated
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 c Shortening (I used 1/4 cup butter and topped up with vege oil. Works!)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c sifted Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/3 c Milk
  • 1 1/2 c Fresh Blueberries
1 cup = 8 oz


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Beat egg whites until stiff, add about 1/4 cup of sugar to keep them stiff.
  3. Cream shortening, adding salt and vanilla.
  4. Add remaining sugar to this gradually.
  5. Add unbeaten egg yolks and beat until it is light and creamy.
  6. Add the sifted dry ingredients alternately with milk.
  7. Fold in beaten egg whites.
  8. Fold in the blueberries (take a bit of the flour called for and gently shake the berries in it so they wont settle).
  9. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 pan.
  10. Sprinkle top of the batter with some granulated sugar.
  11. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes.
