    Blueberry, orange & polenta cake

    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 25 minutes
    • Cooking time: 55 minutes to 1 hour
    • Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes to 1 hour 25 minutes

    Serves: 10

    Ingredients

    300g unsalted butter, softened
    300g caster sugar
    4 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
    200g ground almonds
    Zest and juice of 2 small oranges
    180g instant polenta
    2 tsp Dr Oetker Baking Powder
    100ml natural yogurt
    210g blueberries
    Icing sugar to dust
     

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Grease and line a 23cm round tin. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar together until pale. Beat in the eggs slowly, one at a time, alternating each addition with a quarter of the ground almonds.

    2. Add the orange juice and zest with the polenta, baking powder and yogurt. Stir to combine. Add half of the blueberries and stir to combine, before scraping into the prepared tin. Scatter the remaining blueberries over the top before baking for 55-60 minutes, until golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean of any mixture. If your cake is becoming too dark on the top, cover loosely with foil. Dust with icing sugar and serve with crème fraîche or yogurt.
