Blueberry Cake Bites
Well Well… this is an amazingly simple recipe and great to taste..for this recipe, you may bake a fresh vanilla cake or use a left over cake (which sometimes turn a little dry), I have used a left over cake, which did have a whipped cream icing on it.
For the vanilla cake you may refer to this other recipe
Ingredients for the base:
2 cups cake crumbs (coarsely crumb your cake whether its a dry one or with icing)
4-5 table spoons butterscotch sauce
Ingredients for the filling:
150 ml whipped cream
food colour a few drops
1 tea spoon gelatine powder
60 ml cold water
Ingredients for topping:
100 ml Blueberry Crush
Coarsely crumb the cake and add butterscotch sauce to the same, and knead it lightly. Wrap it in a cling sheet and keep it aside for ten minutes.
In the mean while whip the cream till stiff peaks are formed. Add desired food colour and keep aside.
Sprinkle the granules of gelatin over the surface cold water. Use 1/4 cup or 60ml. Let it stand for 5-10 minutes.
Add warm water to it or heat gently stirring until dissolved. Add this gelatine to the whipped cream and whip it with a blender for a couple of minutes.
On a plate, place different shaped cookie cutters as per your choice. Line the cookie cutters with a base of cake crumbs, pushing it with a spoon and even it out. Keep it in the fridge for about half an hour and let it set.
Now fill in the second layer with the whipped cream, you can use a piping bag to layer it evenly.
Put it in the fridge again and let it set for another 15-20 minutes.
Now pipe in the last layer with the topping of blueberry crush and set it again in fridge for half an hour.
After half an hour remove the plate from the fridge, now carefully take out the cookie cutter from each cake, so that they retain the lovely shapes.., now you may carefully lift them with a palette knife to a serving plate and ta daaahhh… delicious blueberry cake bites are ready…!!
A useful tip: you may go with a completely no bake version of this by substituting the cake base with crushed biscuits base.
Crumb the biscuits of your choice and knead them with some melted butter.
