Gaby's Bakery - Méribel Blueberry Cake

I've never skied in 23⁰ C sunshine before. That's how it was in April this year with beautiful snow below and beating sun above. Gorgeous. It would be far more romantic to say the melting ice cap revealed a centuries old collection of lost Savoie recipes written on parchment, lost or buried by a traveller in a snow storm.

But no, the recipe was given to us by our talented chalet chef and I've baked it six times since because it's an absolute winner. In my mind it's the Méribel Blueberry Cake but only by dint of the English chef spending a season there.

I'm sharing it here as I know you'll love this.

Méribel Blueberry Cake

Ingredients:
200g butter
200g sugar
200g self raising flour
200g blueberry yoghurt
125g blueberries
3 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Icing sugar to dust

Method:
Preheat oven to 160⁰ C. Grease and line a 20cm springform cake tin.

In a large bowl mix the butter, sugar, eggs and yoghurt until light and fluffy. Next fold in the flour and then the blueberries. Transfer to the prepared cake tin and bake for appx 35-40 minutes, until golden on top and a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Enjoy

It’s almost certainly a combination. You won’t have one hair type, in the same way that you’re unlikely to have one skin type on your face. Treating your eye area like your T-zone will cause...

I love long hair. But sometimes you can have too much of a good thing, and if it’s not cut properly it can drown the wearer and make shampoo-days a dreaded event. Tara had gorgeous hair but the haircut had no shape. Just the usual...
