Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Cake

My sister and I were looking for a healthy cake to bake for my nephew’s first birthday and finally zeroed in on this. It’s a no-fuss recipe and tastes very healthy too. Whether you are celebrating Diwali (it’s eggless!), Halloween, a birthday or an anniversary, this is a different cake you can try out. You can find the original recipe here

Ingredients:

Milk – 3/4 cup
Lemon juice – 1/4 cup

All-purpose flour – 2 cups
Sugar – 2/3 cup
Baking powder – 4 tsp
Salt – 1 tsp

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

  • Combine the first six ingredients in a bowl. Whisk and keep aside
  • In another bowl, combine the remaining ingredients except the 1/3 cup of blueberries

  • Pour this batter into the prepared baking pan and sprinkle the 1/3 cup of blueberries on top
