  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup of VIRGIN olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp of almond extract
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • zest of two lemons grated
  • zest of 2 oranges grated
  • zest of half a lime grated
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream ( yes, you can use a milk if you must :-) )
  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh blue berries

Blueberry Cake Recipe Procedure:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Grease the cake pan. Set aside.
  2. Beat eggs and sugar. You want it light yellow in color.
  3. Add butter, olive oil, cream, and the vanilla and almond extracts. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together. Mix well.
  4. If you feel you want salt add a pinch here at this step. Stir in all the zests.
  5. Spoon half of the batter into the prepared cake pan.
  6. Drop 1/3 of the blue berries evenly on top of the batter.
  7. Cover with the remaining batter.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes.
  9. Sprinkle the remaining blue berries on the top. Press them into the batter so you only see a little bit of the tops.
