Clean Lemon & Blueberry Mini Bundt Cakes

Thursday, 11 June 2015


This week I made some super yummy (and clean!) lemon and blueberry mini bundt cakes and posted a picture to my facebook page - and one of my lovely readers requested that I share the recipe I used.
I found the base of the recipe on the Laurens Latest blog, but I adapted it so that it would be a little more clean, however this is not a must and you can make them the original way if you prefer something a little more indulgent.

Ingredients;

6 Tablespoons olive spread (you could use butter)
3/4 cup agave nectar (I get mine from Sainsburys - here, but you could use granulated sugar if you are not going clean)
1 Large egg
2 Tablespoons milk
Zest and Juice of 1 lemon
1 1/4 Cups gluten free flour (ordinarly flour will work just as well)
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh blueberries (You could also use frozen)

For the drizzle topping
1 1/4 cup icing sugar
Juice of half a lemon

Method.

Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees. I am using a non stick mini bundt pan from Sainsburys (similar here) but you could always make them into cupcake cases instead, if so, place your cupcake cases into the tray now.

In a large bowl add all wet ingredients; olive spread, agave nectar, egg, milk, lemon juice, and blend until smooth and creamy. Make sure you scrape the sides of the bowl and get everything mixed in.

Slowly add in the dry ingredients; Flour, Baking powder, lemon zest and salt. sifting these in will make for a much smoother batter.

Once everything is combined you can add in the blueberries and mix into the batter gently.

You can then go ahead and put your batter into either your cake pan or cake cases. Pop into the oven and allow them to cook for 12-16 minutes. You will be able to check if they are ready by inserting a toothpick into the middle and it will come out clean.

If you can wait (Dan couldn't), allow the cakes to cool for 5 minutes while you make the drizzle topping.

Simply combine the icing sugar with the lemon juice until smooth and lightly drizzle over the cakes - this part is obviously not clean, so if you want the cakes to be completely clean then simply skip this step and enjoy them as they are. They taste every bit as good plain!

These little cakes are so yummy, each bite is sweet and moist and you will enjoy the surprise of blueberries bursting in your mouth! I always try to eat clean and its nice to know you can still enjoy treats like these and not have to worry about piling on the pounds
