  1. Take the blueberries and gently push 6-8 into each cake. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until well risen and golden and a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer to a rack to completely cool.

Chef Tips

For a sweeter cake, sprinkle 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon raw brown granulated sugar over the each cake just before baking.

To melt coconut oil, stand jar in a bowl of hot water until melted.

Out of season, make these with 1 1/2 cups of frozen corn kernels.

To make this into a regular buckle cake, use an 8 inch fixed bottom flan case  or low sided cake tin, bottom lined with parchment paper. Bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
