Summer has definitely arrived and with it comes beautiful ripe soft fruits. With so many pick-your-own and local farm shops around you are able to indulge in a bowl of berries. As lovely as they are on their own, with a lovely coating of thick double cream or they are versatile to bake up into a lovely dessert or cake. This recipe for Brioche and Blueberry cake is quick and easy to make. Blueberries are a super-food, rich in antioxidants and vitamins, so you are being healthy at the same time! If you cannot get orange flower water you can use some orange rind and a little squeezed orange juice to give it a slight citrus flavour.
2 A Few Drops Of Orange Flower Water (Optional)<:
Few Clear Honey:
2 Tbsp Castor Sugar:
8fl Oz Double Cream:
Preheat the oven to 160C
Slice brioche and layer into the tin or dish and sprinkle on the blueberries.
Press down well and drizzle honey and orange flower water over the top.
Beat eggs, cream, milk and sugar together.
Pour liquid evenly over the cakes.
Leave to rest for about 30 minutes.
Sprinkle with flaked almonds (optional).
Bake for 15-20 minutes for the small cakes and 30 minutes for the large cake, until set in the middle and golden brown.
Serve warm or cold with clotted cream.
TIP: Keep cream fresher for longer - Make cream, cottage cheese and créme fraîche last longer by storing the container upside down in the fridge to create a vacuum effect that inhibits the growth of bacteria.
Hi Alex, I'm really sorry I didn't get to see you and thank you in person earlier when you dropped off the printer. Your kind donation is really appreciated from us all here at Winnersh Primary- Pam on
Your technician had great difficulties getting here today? Ascot to Windsor on Race Days is an horrific drive. We left him to his labours and went outside to do some gardening. He obviously found the oven & hob too difficult to clean and gave it up. He must have carried spares in his van because he then installed new ovens, hob and extractor for us instead ! As always, thanks for your friendly super services ?you take so many worries off our shoulders.- David on
