Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely grated orange rind
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice

Method

Grease 10-inch (3 L) Bundt pan or angel food cake pan; dust with flour. Set aside.

In large bowl, beat butter with 1 cup (250 mL) of the sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg yolks, 1 at a time; beat in orange rind.

In separate bowl and using clean beaters, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Beat in remaining sugar, 1 tbsp (15 mL) at a time, until firm glossy peaks form. Set aside.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. With wooden spoon, stir into butter mixture alternately with orange juice, making 3 additions of dry ingredients and 2 of juice to make stiff batter.

Stir one-third of the egg whites into batter; fold in remaining egg whites. Fold in 2 cups (500 mL) of the blueberries. Scrape into prepared pan; smooth top and tap pan gently on counter.

Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool for 20 minutes.

Glaze: Meanwhile, in small saucepan, bring sugar and juice to boil, stirring; boil for 1 minute. Let cool.

Loosen cake from edges of pan. Place rack over pan; turn cake out onto rack. Place sheet of foil below rack. Lift off pan; brush cake with glaze. Let cool.

Transfer cake to flat serving plate; fill centre with remaining blueberries.
