This Omnia blueberry cake went down an absolute treat in our campervan. This recipe is ideal if you are a blueberry fan, and a great recipe for any campervan. For Mark’s birthday I wanted to try baking something different to a traditional birthday cake. We had been looking online at seasonal produce and saw bilberries. I then saw a recipe for a bilberry upside down cake and really wanted to try it. We went to a few different shops and couldn’t find any, I didn’t have the time to forage any either (although it’s the right time of year for it!) So I had to settle on blueberry upside down cake instead.
Luckily Mark had a humongous punnet of blueberries in the fridge, they were taking up so much space and needed using up – got to use up those leftovers and space is at a premium in a campervan fridge! So I decided to try a blueberry upside down cake – in the Omnia of course. With not having an oven in our van, the Omnia comes in handy. I love the round cakes we make in it, you can make them into a real feature.
So there you go, I used Mark’s blueberry stash to make his own birthday cake – he didn’t mind when he tasted it though.This recipe would work well with other fruit too. Don’t forget to rate it and leave a review if you try it
