Decadent Blueberry Almond Cake

This Blueberry Almond cake recipe is a wonderful way to use those Blueberries you bought at the market that may not quite have the flavor you desired.


2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter (softened)

2 eggs (beaten)

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 tsp almond extract

1/2 cup milk

2 cups blueberries


1 egg white

4 tbs. sugar

1 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 2 qt. glass baking dish.

Sift flour, baking powder, salt & set aside. Beat butter & sugar until light and

fluffy. Beat in eggs & add almond extract. Add flour mixture and milk,

beating on low speed. Fold in the blueberries. Spread mixture in baking pan.

Prepare topping; lightly beat egg white and add sugar & almonds, stirring to

coat. Spoon mixture over batter and spread evenly.

Bake 45 – 50 minutes. Cool and serve.

I first used this recipe with some berries that were a bit disappointing flavor wise. This is a wonderful recipe made even better with the rich flavor of fresh berries, when local Blueberries are available.

    Please correct your recipe by adding: 2 eggs, on the list of ingredients!!! Otherwise, this is a hit every time I make it. Had passed the link to someone else who discovered the “omission”.
