Spotted blueberry & clotted cream cake for summer

The longer days and warmer weather have heralded a rather packed social calendar, which means baking has taken a very big step back. I have tons of recipes bookmarked and ready to be tried, but it looks like I'll have to wait for the weather to get colder to send me scurrying back into the warmth of the kitchen.

I did however manage to bake one cake in June for a friend's birthday/farewell party. Since she was leaving London, I decided to make a traditional English cake - Victorian sponge, but with a slight twist. Simply by folding in blueberries into the batter, you get a lovely, moist and utterly tasty cake perfect for summer.

Recipe is from BBC GoodFood.
