Blueberry & White Chocolate Cake

This cake is so perfect to take to a summer picnic or barbecue. While fresh blueberries are in season we try to make the most of them and this Blueberry and White Chocolate Cake was too tempting not to make. It is very easy to make and the flavours work perfectly together. Leish made this to take to our family dinner and lets just say that it didn’t last long. If you are feeling adventurous, you could try using raspberries instead of blueberries, or even go crazy and use both!

    Looks yummy! I’m thinking of trying this recipe. But wonder if the flour you mentioned here is actually plain flour? Thanks!
