Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Use Frozen Blueberries for This Recipe?
Yes, you can.
However, frozen blueberries are usually watery after defrost, so make sure you pat dry the frozen blueberries with paper towels before adding them to the cake batter.
How to Prevent Blueberries from Sinking to the Bottom?
To help keep your blueberries from sinking to the bottom, toss the berries in flour before adding them to the batter.
The coating helps suspend them better during baking so they don’t sink to the bottom.

- 1/4 cup (2 oz. / 55 g) unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup (4 oz. / 100 g) sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup (5 oz. / 150 g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups (5 oz. / 150 g) fresh or frozen blueberries
- Preheat the oven 350°F (176°C). Grease the four (4) mini loaf pans with butter (I used 3" x 1.75" mini loaf pans). You may also use one (1) regular loaf pan.
- Place butter, sugar, egg, milk and vanilla extract in a bowl. Whisk for 2 minutes.
- Combine the flour, baking powder and salt together. Stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in the blueberries.
- Transfer the batter into the pans. Bake for 30 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. If you use a regular loaf pan, you may need to bake for 40 minutes or more. If the top of the cake gets too dark, cover it with a sheet of aluminum foil to avoid over browning at 30 minutes mark.
- Let cool for 10 minutes, dust with powdered sugar if desired.
