  • ½ cup (1 stick) MagicalButter

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste

How To

Cake

 

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff, and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, oil, lemon extract, and sugar for 3-4 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  5. Stir in the egg yolks individually, then the vanilla; combine them thoroughly.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Alternate adding the buttermilk and dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  7. Mix until just combined, and then fold in the egg whites.
  8. Pour the mix evenly into the prepared pans. Bake them until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, 20-25 minutes.
  9. Remove the pans from the oven, and allow them to cool for 15 minutes. Then, turn the cakes out onto cooling racks, and let them cool completely.

 

Frosting

 

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar, and beat until light and fluffy.

 

Assembly

 

  1. Spread the first cake layer with frosting, and top it with blueberries.
  2. Repeat Step 1 three times, creating a three-layer cake. Arrange more blueberries around the edge of each layer for structure.
  3. Top the cake with more blueberries, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  4. Slice, serve, and enjoy your Birthday Cake!
