Individual Blueberry Cakes

These little Individual Blueberry Cakes are delicious! They are also very easy to whip up at a moment's notice, but I will tell you right now. My husband has requested that from now on, I double the recipe...

Have you found that delicious yet easy-to-make dessert for just the two of you can be a bit difficult? Me too! Partly because I no longer have a seething sweet tooth, so, dessert has not been a priority. Now my dear husband could eat ice cream every night and be completely satisfied (and truth be told, there is ice cream available, most of the time), but there are times I want a bit of dessert to enjoy...

You can tell by the camp coffee cups used to bake the Individual Blueberry Cakes, this recipe was developed during a camping trip! Which only serves to testify how easy it is to make. But we also have some pretty oven dishes, and one day soon, I will bake these again just to prove it! Fortunately not only is this dessert delicious, but it does not call for fancy ingredients! 

And for those fortunate enough to have blueberry bushes in their yard or garden, this is the perfect recipe to keep handy! But trust me, frozen blueberries also work just fine! So who wants Individual Blueberry Cakes for their dessert?

Ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour, recipe found here
  • blueberries
  • sugar
  • milk
  • vanilla
  • apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
You will also need:
  • 2 small baking dishes
  • small baking pan
  • measuring spoons
  • measuring cup
  • mixing bowl
  • stirring spoon
Now we are ready to get started!

Individual Blueberry Cakes

Individual Blueberry Cakes
by the seat of my pants!
375-degree oven

1/3 c Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour, you can find our recipe here.
1/4 c sugar
1T melted butter
1/2 t vanilla
1 t cider vinegar OR lemon juice
approximately 1/4 c milk

1 c blueberries, frozen is fine
1 T sugar

Prepare 2 small baking dishes for baking, set aside.

In a small measuring cup, add the vanilla along with the cider vinegar. Add enough milk to equal 1/4 liquid total. Set aside for milk to clabber slightly.

Melt butter, let cool slightly. Add sugar, milk mixture,  and self-rising flour. Beat well with a spoon (about 25 strokes). Set aside.

Combine berries with 1 T sugar, mixing well.

Divide half of the berries between the two baking dishes.

Top each baking dish with 1/2 of the cake batter.

Scatter remaining berries over the top of the batter, including any sugar that might be left behind.

Bake 20-25 minutes, or until done in your oven. Note:  if using frozen berries you will need to increase baking time by 10-12 minutes.

Tip: Place the small cups in a baking pan for baking, one larger pan is easier to remove from the oven than the little cups.

Let cool before serving, and if desired, top with a bit of whipped cream or ice cream.
