Today I would like to share with you a recipe for a Blueberry cake that looks...well greenish.
I had some blueberries in the fridge that needed to be put to good use pretty darn quick, so I had to come up with a recipe to finish up all the berries. Well, you are probably wondering why this cake looks green, and the secret to that is food coloring. My son wanted the cake to look as if aliens had made it so he came up with the idea of adding Blue food coloring not Green. Once all the ingredients were mixed together we came up with a lovely Mint Green color.
The ingredients are as follows :
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups of sugar
- 1/2 cup cooking oil
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tsp baking powder
- zest of lemon
- 4 drops of Blue food coloring
- 3 cups of flour
- 1 cup of blueberries ( I prefer sour cherries, yummy)
Mix the first seven ingredients well. Then gradually add in your flour. Once everything is mixed well together, add in your Blueberries and mix once again. I added more then 1 cup of berries.
Next step is to get the mixture taste tested like below :o)
Pour the mixture into a cake pan and sprinkle a handful of Blueberries on the very top of the mixture as per below.
You can alter the recipe to less sugar or different fruits, whatever you have handy at home. I hope you will give it a try cause the kids absolutely loved this Alien Green Blueberry cake :o)
Have a terrific Wednesday !!!!
