Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk, almond milk as alternate
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract 
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, plus more as desired

Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened to room temp
  • 4 ounces (brick-style) cream cheese, softened to room temp
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup freeze dried blueberries, pulsed into a fine powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, then set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together both flours, baking powder, salt, and set aside. 
  3. In another medium-sized bowl: combine eggs, sugar, milk, extract, and oil. Stir together to fully combine. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together until just combined.
  4. Gently fold in blueberries into the mixture and pour cake batter into prepared cake pan.
  5. Bake cake for 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center of cake comes out clean.
  6. Transfer cake to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. Using a stand mixer or handheld electric mixer, beat butter and cream cheese together until silky smooth, about 2 minutes. Add in extract and powdered sugar, carefully continue beating until powdered sugar is well combined, about 2-3 minutes. Pour in blueberry powder and mix again until blueberry frosting comes together, another 1-2 minutes.
  2. Frost cooled cake, cut into slices, and serve. Enjoy!

Notes

  1. Use a blender/food processor to pulse freeze dried blueberries into powder form.
