One of my goals for this year was to take better care of myself, eat the right foods, exercise more and just look after my body and I have to say it's working because I feel more fitter and healthier than I have in years. I've been searching for some "healthy" cake recipes to soothe my sweet cravings and I think I've finally found the solution, with these little light sponges being only 100 calories each they are definitely a well deserved treat after a hard work-out!
- 1 cup of blueberries
- 1/2 cup of corn flour/starch
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp rice flour
- A pinch of salt
♥ Preheat an oven to 190°c and line a muffin tin with 9 baking cases.
♥ Separate the eggs, add a pinch of salt to the whites and whip them till stiff (extra work-out points if you do this by hand!).
♥ Gradually add the sugar into the egg whites until sugar has dissolved and eggs are stiff.
♥ Add the egg yolks to the whites and mix well.
♥ Fold the rice flour, baking powder and corn flour into the mixture.
♥ Place equal amounts of blueberries into each of the baking cases then spoon the sponge mixture onto them
♥ Put into the oven to bake for approximately 20 minutes till lightly browned and springy to the touch
♥ Once cooked allow to cool for a while until you're ready to dig in and enjoy!
Eat & Enjoy!
