Start your morning with a slice of this blueberry breakfast cake! It’s full of fresh blueberries, and light and tender. Enjoy a slice with a cup of tea or coffee.
The seasons are changing, and I can’t wait for summer produce! Corn on the cob, watermelon, pickles, and fresh berries are on my wish list.
I recently bought some blueberries, and they have been perfect for making some delicious vegan blueberry pancakes, and also this blueberry breakfast cake.
This cake is light and fluffy, and not too sweet, making it perfect for breakfast or brunch. A dusting of powdered sugar on top looks pretty. If you wanted to add a little more sweetness, you could do a simple glaze with non-dairy milk and powdered sugar.
I made this blueberry cake with white spelt flour, but you can use all-purpose flour if you like. You could even use a whole wheat flour if you wish, although that will make the cake a bit heavier.
Can this cake be made gluten free?
I did not try this recipe with gluten free flour, but if you have a lighter flour blend, like my homemade blend, it should work out pretty well. Or if you need a gluten free and vegan cake recipe, try my apple spice cake.
What can I use instead of blueberries in this breakfast cake?
You can use any berry you like! Raspberries, blackberries, or even chopped strawberries should work well. If you don’t have berries, try chopped apples or peaches.
Can this cake be made ahead of time?
You can make this blueberry cake the night before you plan to serve it. Just cover the pan with plastic wrap to keep it moist, and wait to dust the cake with powdered sugar until you’re ready to serve it.
