Lemon and Blueberry Cake with Greek Yoghurt Icing

I love blueberries. A beautifully coloured fruit and such a lovely flavour too, it’s a double threat! I also adore lemons and more specifically, lemon zest. The most gorgeous smell fills my kitchen whenever I bake with lemons and it’s an incredibly comforting and welcoming scent.

So what do I do when it’s my Dad and Nan’s birthday? Well make a lemon and blueberry cake of course!

Roasted Blueberry Cupcakes

This weekend I spent at home with my parents as it was my birthday on Thursday and Father’s Day on Sunday. I don’t get to spend much time with them as I’m working full time now, plus all of my sports and activities in the evenings and weekends so I really relished going home. Usually I make my Dad a Mary Berry cherry cake but he requested a blueberry cake next time I baked for him. Well I made blueberry cupcakes so sort of what he asked for!

I wanted to make blueberry flavoured cupcakes rather than vanilla ones with blueberries in them so in my various browsing of baking and foody blogs, I came across the recipe for roasted blueberry cupcakes and thought it was perfect for what I wanted to do.
