Preparation steps

  1. Line the tin and weigh out the ingredients: Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4 and place a paper case in each gap in the fairy cake tin. Next, take the large mixing bowl and weigh in the flour, baking powder, butter, sugar and lemon curd.
  2. Add the eggs: Crack the eggs into the small bowl, then add them to the other ingredients, making sure there are no eggshells in the bowl.
  3. Get started: Mix everything thoroughly with the electric hand mixer until a creamy mixture is formed. Then carefully stir in the blueberries with a metal spoon or spatula.
  4. Spoon into the molds: Use the ice cream scoop or spoon to distribute the mixture evenly into the paper molds. Make sure the mixture goes into the containers. Now place the cake tin in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, until the cakes are golden brown (to check whether they are done, look at the tip box on the left). Allow to cool for a few minutes, then remove the cakes to a cooling rack.
  5. Prepare the topping: Clean the large mixing bowl and dry it well. Then add the mascarpone and lemon curd to the bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  6. Now to decorate: Carefully cut a circle out of the top of each cake – ask an adult to help you with this. Lift off the circle and fill the space with the lemon filling, followed by some blueberries. Cut the cut out cake circle in half and place it on top to create butterfly wings. Put some powdered sugar in a tea strainer and sprinkle over the cakes.

Health Benefits of Blueberry Butterfly Cake

The delicious blueberry butterfly cakes not only delight the taste buds but also offer several health benefits. Let’s take a closer look at some of the nutritious ingredients and their benefits:

1. Blueberries

Blueberries are often hailed as a superfood due to their high antioxidant content. These tiny berries are full of vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese. Antioxidants help fight free radicals in the body, reduce the risk of chronic diseases and support overall health. Blueberries are also known for their anti-inflammatory properties, which promote heart health and improve brain function.

2. Lemon curd

Lemon curd gives the butterfly cakes a tangy and refreshing taste. Lemons are rich in vitamin C, which is essential for a strong immune system and collagen production. They also contain flavonoids, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. In addition, lemons can aid digestion and promote hydration.

3. Light mascarpone

In this recipe, light mascarpone serves as a lighter alternative to traditional cream. It offers a creamy texture without excessive fat content. Mascarpone is a good source of calcium, which is crucial for maintaining strong bones and teeth. Calcium also plays a role in muscle function and nerve transmission.

4. Self-raising flour

Self-rising flour is a combination of pure flour and a leavening agent such as baking powder. In contrast to normal flour, which does not contain any leavening agents, self-raising flour ensures that the baked goods have a loose and well-risen consistency. It represents a source of energy and nutrients like carbohydrates and fiber, although the latter is present in smaller quantities.

Blueberry Butterfly Cakes are a delicious treat that the whole family can enjoy. They not only satisfy your sweet cravings, but also provide a dose of useful nutrients. So gather your loved ones in the kitchen and have fun baking these delicious and health-conscious treats!
