Blueberry soured cream cake

Before I took to the sofa this weekend, I did make a soured cream blueberry cake from this recipe. It was ok, but I thought it came out overly soggy, and although the cake was completely cold when I frosted it, it all ran off (perhaps because I used M and S organic cream cheese rather than more plastic philadelphia).
We did make it to a pick your own farm at the weekend, and got £10.58 of strawberries, raspberries and blackcurrants which now I'm on a mission to use up - mainly icecream but some baking too I expect.


  1. It sounds as if you have the perfect ingredients for a summer pudding! I may attempt that this summer.
    We went to one of our local farmer's markets yesterday and indulged in strawberries and raspberries.

  2. OOh, that's a good idea. Though I'm not a HUGE fan (why do bread based, when you can have cake!), but I do like the mix of fruits. When my Mum used to make it it never had enough syrup so the bread was still white, and I think remembering that puts me off. But I like the M and S ones so maybe I should have a go! Hope you've got plenty of clotted cream :) (we have soured cream and strawberry ice cream!)

  3. Plastic philadelphia! You crack me right up--but it's true. Your cake looks delicious and nicely presented as well. I've just got in from work and I'm starving so that's me off to root through the fridge.
