Individual Blueberry Cakes – the perfect quick and easy dessert for a busy weeknight.

Individual Blueberry Cakes are a great last-minute dessert you can pull together in less than 15 minutes (prep time) on those nights you have unexpected guests – or just want to treat yourself! Calling for only 7 ingredients that you are likely to have on hand in your pantry (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, butter and, yes, blueberries), they are super easy to prepare. No electric mixer or blender required – all you need is two mixing bowls, a spoon, a whisk and some ramekins. That’s it! Easy, delicious and elegant – what more could you ask for?

If you don’t have fresh blueberries on hand, substitute frozen blueberries that have been thawed and drained. I like to add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream when serving.

    I made your delicious Sticky Ginger Cake for my friends here in Stockholm and everyone is asking for the recipe…I made some changes as you can’t find molasses in Sweden. I replaced the molasses with half golden syrup and half quality maple syrup and it turned out beautifully. The Sweds love anything and everything “paperkakar”…Gingerbread!

      Thanks Ginia! So happy you and your friends liked it. And it’s great to now have a perfect substitute for the molasses –
