“A nice way to use up some leftover blueberries.”

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced, divided
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter six 4-inch ramekins and place in a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. Mix blueberries, lemon zest, and 2 tablespoons white sugar together in a small bowl.
  3. Microwave 2 tablespoons butter in a microwave-safe bowl until melted, about 30 seconds. Stir in brown sugar. Spread equal amounts into the bottom of each ramekin. Divide the blueberry mixture evenly into the ramekins.
  4. Beat 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup white sugar in a large bowl using an electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing after each addition. Mix in lemon juice and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking powder, ginger, and salt; stir until combined. Mix in milk. Spoon batter into the ramekins over the blueberry mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 35 minutes.
  6. Let cool in the ramekins for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the cakes; invert onto a plate.
