Blueberry Loaf Cake

by Mandy Simmonds

After a quick rummage in my store cupboard and freezer, I came up with these simple yet utterly delicious cakes. In my opinion if you are making 1 cake, then you may as well make 2! We are spending so much time at home and these cakes will be thoroughly enjoyed by all. Cooks Matches and I want to know what your go-to store cupboard recipes are? Do you have a lovely home bake that you make often?


  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs drop at a time whilst mixing hard. Continue until fully incorporated. Slowly fold in the flour until combined.
  3. Split between the 2 loaf tins.
  4. Add the blueberries to the top and poke in a little with your finger.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until cooked through. Check with a cocktail stick, if clean when it’s removed then the cake is cooked.
  6. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
  7. Enjoy with a nice cup of tea :)
