“This looks good,” I murmured to myself when I saw a video by chance while I was checking my Facebook feed on my phone. “And so easy to make!”
I showed it to my colleague and said, “I’m so going to make this!”
“It looks yummy,” she said. “Do it!”
“I certainly will, but I think I will make some adjustments,” I said while my eyes were still glued on the screen. “I’m not really a fan of cherries, so I think I will substitute it with blueberries.”
“Tell us about the outcome or better yet bring some to work,” she said with a grin on her face before going back to what she was doing.
I have all the ingredients at home except for the blueberries. I made a mental note to buy some on my way home from the gym later.
By six in the evening I was already at home. After changing clothes, I started making dinner followed by whipping up this dessert with much gusto.
2 cups of blueberry
30 grams of melted butter
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
A tablespoonful of lemon rind
A pinch of salt
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a round 26 cm baking dish with butter and dust with sugar until the surface is completely covered.
2. Arrange the blueberries in a single layer; set aside.
3. Mix the eggs, sugar and salt.
4. Gradually add the flour while mixing.
5. Add the vanilla essence, milk, lemon rind and melted butter. Stir until well blended. The result is a light batter.
6. Pour the mixture over the blueberries in the baking dish.
7. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes until puffed and golden brown. Let it cool for a couple of minutes before sprinkling it with powdered sugar. It’s best served lukewarm. Vel bekomme!
“It’s really tasty,” Odd said before taking another spoonful of the dessert into his mouth. “It just melts in my mouth and there’s this slight tanginess. It stimulates my palate with summery freshness”
“I know right?” I said without a hint of false modesty.
