It is definitely a good buy when there is cheap fresh blueberries for sale, 1 box @ 4.4oz per pack for $3.60 at NTUC supermarket.  I immediately grabbed two boxes not even thinking what I am going to do with them.

As there is a can of blueberries in syrup in the pantry, I decided to bake a cake.  I divided the cake batter into two portions and baked in the oven at 180-degree.

Wash the fresh berries and set aside.  Mix the blueberries in syrup with half of the fresh berries and cook till bubbling.  Add in fine sugar and arrow root flour to thicken.  Leave to cool and refrigerate for later use.  When cakes are ready, slice them into half horizontally and leave to cool down.  In the meantime whip the cream till thick and fluffy.  Do not over-mix as the cream will turn liquid.

Spread cream over cakes and top with berries.  Stack the cakes on top of each other to make four layers.  Decorate cakes with cream and blueberries.

The cake was soft and fluffy but a bit dry.  It is advisable to add in 3 tbsp of butter instead oil.

Enjoy the cake with a cup of coffee or tea.
