Blueberry & Custard Tea Cake

Blueberries are very nice in cakes. Blueberry cakes and cup cakes are very popular in cafes as well as at home. The bursting blueberries gives a nice rich purplish colour and a look to these beautiful cakes. The tangy sweet flavours of blueberries  give this cake a rich look as well as the taste.

This cake can be done with any fruit. I added custard to this cake instead of corn flour for two main reasons. one is the colour and the texture.

This can be served as a dessert too.   If you want to serve this cake as a dessert use whipping cream or custard to serve. Its really nice with a scoop of ice cream too.

How to Cook Quinoa.

Quinoa is gluten free superfood that you can use instead of rice. Replacing quinoa instead of starchy products will give you lots of proteins as well as a lot of minerals and vitamins. Its very famous for its omega 3 fatty acid levels too. quinoa is also a very good source of calcium, magnesium and manganese.

Cooked quinoa seeds become fluffy and creamy, slightly  crunchy. It has a delicate and  nutty in  flavour, Its good for salads side dishes or even making snacks. I want to show the right way of cooking quinoa with a bit of flavour as cooked in restaurants. When you add flavour it can be eaten with anything too.

When you buy Quinoa make sure to buy organic quinoa. There are 3 types.white , black or mixer of black and white. If you are doing this for a salad black and white the best. I always buy the organic quinoa.
This recipe is for 2 cups of Wash the quinoa several times well before using.
For every cup of quinoa add 1 1/2 cups of water. Bring it to the boil and reduce the heat to low and cook covered until no water. It will tale 10-15 minutes.
I normally add 1 tsp stock powder and a tablespoon full olive oil. Instead you can use stock water or butter. Instead of adding water add stock water directly
Always cook covered.
Use a chop stick to stir.It should be nice and fluffy
Serve with meat or vegetables or even a curry.
