Blueberry Cream Cheese Butter Cake

I baked non-bake blueberry cheese cupcake before and it looked really awful and not promising. Since then, I have no courage to bake a cake. It looks so difficult to me and I afraid of failure, then all my effort, time and money will go wasted. :p 

I saw this blueberry cream cheese butter cake from Ellena Guan and I am so tempted to try to bake one. At least one. I gathered my courage once again and put my feet down to bake.

The cake was smelling so good after it came out from the oven. The cake is very moist and creamy topped with the fresh blueberries, it is very delicious! I love to have this after chill. It tastes so good to me. :) I'm so happy that I did it! Hubby non-stop compliment that this cake is very nice and even said better than those selling on the shelf! I'm flattered. :p 

The cake before pop into the oven. I was so nervous and praying hard it turns good at that point of time. I probably stop baking cake if this failed. :p

It looks so soft and fluffy after bake! If you like cheesecake texture like and creamier, then chill them in the fridge for overnight. :)

*I halved the recipe for two reasons: 
 - Smaller cake for small family
 - Afraid failure! 

250g Philadelphia cream cheese, softened 
250g self-raising flour 
250g unsalted butter, softened 
200g caster sugar 
70ml fresh milk 
3 eggs 
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1/4 tsp of salt, optional 
250g fresh blueberries 

1. Pre-heat the oven to 160c, grease and line cake tin with baking paper. 
2. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla using electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, one at a time until well mixed.
3. Add in cream cheese and fresh milk and beat until smooth.
4. Add in flour and mixed well with spatula. Gently fold in blueberries (set aside some for toppings - optional).
5. Gently spoon the cake batter into the cake tin.
6. Pop into the oven for approximately 50 minutes or until a skewer in the middle comes out clean.
7. Dust with icing sugar when the cake is cooled.
