Who doesn't love blueberries and lemon? For the Tuesdays with Dorie baking group, I made the Curd, Cream, using fresh blueberries as my berry of choice.
The cake is a delightful, tender cake, especially when soaked with an orange/lemon syrup. The layers are filled with a mixture of mascarpone, whipped cream, and whipped egg whites, then topped with the blueberries and homemade lemon curd. As you can see, I was very liberal with the lemon curd, one of my favorite treats..
I chose to make half a recipe (a 6" cake is exactly half of a 9"). It was the perfect size for me, and lasted for several days - with great willpower!
The recipe for this cake can be found in Baking with Dorie by Dorie Greenspan.
