Course: Snack
Servings: 1 loaf cake


  • 2 free-range or organic egg/s
  • 120 g full-fat natural yoghurt - or Greek yoghurt (½ cup)
  • 80 ml macadamia nut oil - or melted butter or olive oil (¼ cup)
  • 170 g rice malt syrup, honey or maple syrup - (½ cup)
  • 1 lemon/s - zest and 3 tbsp juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla - extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 200 g white spelt flour - (1 ¾ cups)
  • 1 cup blueberries - fresh (can also use frozen but do not defrost)


  • Preheat the oven to 170°C/340°F (fan forced). Line a 23cm x 13cm loaf tin with baking paper.
  • In a food processor or mixing bowl beat the eggs, yoghurt, oil, sweetener, vanilla, lemon juice and zest and vanilla until well combined. If using a Thermomix, 30 seconds speed 3.
  • Add the baking powder and soda and sea salt and mix for 5 seconds to just combine. For the Thermomix 5 seconds, speed 4.
  • Fold in the flour until just combined. Don't over mix it, just combine gently. For the Thermomix lid locked flour symbol for 2 rotations. Then gently fold in three quarters of the blueberries.
  • Pour into your lined baking tin, top with the remaining berries and bake for 45 minutes or until firm in the centre.


  • As is or with fresh double cream.



Replace the spelt with a gluten-free premix. You can also sub with the same volume of almond meal plus 2 tbsp or arrowroot or tapioca starch.


Replace the yoghurt with coconut yoghurt.

Wholemeal cake

You can certainly make this with wholemeal spelt (when I was testing it, only white spelt flour was available for some strange reason).
