Blueberry and Peaches Recipes

1. Blueberry Peach Cake

Try this delicious cake with a rich texture.

Ingredients

For crust

  • 1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose)
  • 1 pound of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon powdered baking soda
  • Salt (1/4 teaspoon)
  • 1 cold unsalted butter stick (1/2 cup) cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • a single huge egg
  • 1 teaspoon extract of vanilla

For filling

  • 1/2 cup sugar (may be cut down to 1/4 cup)
  • 2 tbsp. flour (all-purpose)
  • 1 tbsp. tapioca starch
  • 2 pound nice, firm large peaches (about 4), halved lengthwise, pitted, and sliced lengthwise into four wedges
  • 1 cup (1/2 pint) blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Directions

  • Pulse flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until mixed in a food processor.
  • Add the butter and pulse a few times until the butter bits are the size of a pea.
  • Pulse the dough a few more times with the egg and vanilla extract until it begins to clump together and form a ball.
  • Butter the inside of a 9 or 9 1/2-inch springform pan generously. Butter a round of parchment paper and place it on the bottom of the pan.
  • Spread the dough evenly across the bottom of the pan (approximately 1/4 inch thick) and up the sides of the pan about 2 inches.
  • Place in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes to chill.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F with the rack in the middle position.
  • In a spice grinder, combine 2 tablespoons of sugar, flour, and tapioca until the tapioca is powdered. (You don’t need to grind cornstarch if you’re using it instead of quick tapioca.)
  • Stir in the remaining sugar in a large mixing dish. Toss in the peaches, blueberries, and lemon juice to coat.
  • Fill the peach and blueberry filling into the pastry crust. Cover with foil, but only loosely. 1 3/4 hours at 375°F until the filling is bubbling in the center and the crust is brown.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and lay it on a cooling rack to cool for 20 minutes, uncovered. To help loosen the crust from the pan’s sides, run a blunt knife around the interior edge. After that, carefully remove the pan’s side.
