My Blueberry Nights Cake


 One day I read somewhere that one of the secrets for a good sweet is to bring back to our mind a memory - of childhood, of a special moment, of a place, of a particular person, of the weather, of a movie... The one that I bring you today is a misture of all this allied to the fact that our house is completely filled with a delicious scent and our palate is greedily satisfied with the soft texture, light and sightly acidified of lemon paired with blueberries, easened by the softness and reinvigoration of white chocolate. It's a cake proper to those days when we are searching for ourselves in the fissures of a cake so smooth that it almost breaks into pieces at the slightest touch...

Ingredients:
  • 2 tea cups flour
  • 2 tea cups sugar
  • 1 soup spoon yeast
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 1 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/2 tea cup milk
  • 2/3 whole lemons
  • blueberries
Pre-heat the oven 190ºC/ 4 gas

Take the zest of a lemon, then peel the other two unil all the white comes off, because it's extremely bitter. Put the lemons in the blender. Mix the eggs, the oil and the sugar. Add it to the flour and yeast.In a bowl mix everything together for about 5m. Put the dough in a cake mould lightly greased with butter and sprinkled with flour. Add the blueberries - if you don´t want them to sink pass them through flour first. I didn´t because I didn´t know - always learning! - but will try it on another recipe later and show you if it works!Put it in the oven for about 35 minutes.

Cover:
  • white chocolate melted with butter and a bit of milk





Um dia li algures que um dos segredos de um bom doce é o de trazer à memória uma lembrança - da infância, de um momento especial, de um local, de uma pessoa em particular, do estado do tempo, de um filme... Este que hoje vos trago, é uma mistura de tudo isto aliado ao fato de deixar a casa inundada com um aroma delicioso e o nosso paladar gulosamente satisfeito com a textura macia, leve, saborosa e ligeiramente acidulada do limão e dos mirtilhos, amenizada  pela suavidade e revigoração do chocolate branco. É um bolo indicado para aqueles dias em que andamos à procura de nós, nas fendas de um bolo tão macio que quase se desfaz ao mais leve toque..

Ingredientes:
  • 2 canecas de farinha
  • 2 canecas de açúcar
  • 1 colher de sopa de fermento
  • 3 ovos temperatura ambiente
  • 1 caneca de óleo de girassol
  • 1/2 chávena de chá de leite
  • 2/3 limões inteiras
  • mirtilhos
Pre-aquecer forno a 190ºC/ 4 gás

Tira a raspa a um limão, depois descascar os outros dois até a parte branca sair completamente , porque é extremamente amarga. Tritura os limões. Bate os ovos, o óleo e o açúcar. Junta-os à farinha e ao fermento. Bate tudo cerca de 3 m. Põe a massa numa forma ligeiramente untada com manteiga e levemente polvilhada com farinha. junta os mirtilhos -  se não os quiseres ver afundar passa-os por farinha primeiro. Eu não o fiz porque não sabia - estou sempre a aprender, mas irei tentar outra receita mais tarde e depois mostro se resultou! Vai ao forno cerca de 35 m. 

Cobertura:
  • chocolate branco derretido com um bocadinho de manteiga e leite
