Step 6: Pre heat oven for about 15 minutes at 180 degree celsius or 350 degree fahrenheit. Prepare a loaf tin or cake tin by greasing and dusting with flour. Pour the batter in the tin and tap it well.We tap the tin after pouring the batter so that if there is any air bubbles in the batter,it will escape.Now bake the cake for about 30-35 minutes. After 30 minutes check the cake by inserting a clean knife or tooth pick at multiple places and if it comes out clean this means cake has been baked properly.Take out the cake from the oven safely and let it cool for about 10 mins in the pan and then unmould it on the wire rack and let it cool completely. Then you can cut it and serve with hot tea or coffee.This cake is good for 4-5 days.Enjoy !!

Handy Tip:

1) You can also try this cake by making just half of the batter.Just take half the quantity of all the ingredients.

  • 1/2 cup curd/yogurt
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour/maida
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3-4 tbsp sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp instant coffee
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberry
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup oil

2) If fresh blueberry is not available,then also you can make this cake without blueberries.Then you can name it as coffee cake. Isn’t it so simple.
