Blueberry Breakfast Cake

This soft, dense cake is super simple to throw together in one bowl. The texture is sublime – something like a cross between cake, custard, souffle, and cheesecake. Tastes great warm, but the texture is even better when cold.

Blueberry Breakfast Cake

SMELL GOOD!

Ingredients:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar, heaping
  • 6 TBSP butter, melted
  • 1 cup ricotta or small-curd cottage cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • Cinnamon sugar for topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease inside of 8″ round cake pan. (If pan is shallower than 2″, use an 8″ square or 9″ round pan instead.)

Whisk the eggs and sugar together until smooth.

Add melted butter, cottage or ricotta cheese, sour cream, and vanilla extract. Whisk until combined.

Add flour, salt, and baking powder. Whisk until combined.

Pour batter into pan. Scatter berries evenly on top.

Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (I’m at high altitude, and I needed another 10 minutes.)

Remove cake from oven. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar generously on top.

Let rest for at least 30 minutes for the center to firm.

SMELL GOOD!

Great warm, but maybe even better cold.
