Based on Nigella Lawson’s recipe this easy to make delicious cake can be made with other berries or fruit, but I think the blueberries are just so gorgeous!

Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 F
  2. Grease and line base and sides of a 9-inch square or round cake pan with baking parchment and then grease the parchment. Sprinkle the ¼ cup of sugar over the base of the pan and cover evenly with blueberries.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, ¾ cup of sugar and orange zest. Whisk until pale and thick. Add orange juice and oil. Whisk until blended.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together polenta, flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to egg mixture. Whisk until smooth. Pour into prepared pan.
  5. Bake for 45 - 55 minutes until golden brown and springy to touch. A toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack for about 5 minutes. Carefully invert cake onto a serving plate, and slowly peel off parchment paper. Serve warm or at room temperature.

  • I made the fabulous blueberry polenta cake, i cut all ingredients in half and got plenty of cake for my experiment, and for the two of us. I love the texture, not too sweet, used the blueberries from the bushes on our fields.

    This cake is very much us!

    Ciao and thanks
