Blueberry Maple Tea Cake

Ingredients: – ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour or whole wheat flour – ¾ cup whole wheat flour – 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder – ¼ teaspoon baking soda – ¼ teaspoon kosher salt – ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon – ⅔ cup real maple syrup – 1 large egg, lightly beaten – ½ cup milk – 6 tablespoons (¾ stick) unsalted butter, melted – 1 cup fresh blueberrie

Maple Glaze: – 3 tablespoons unsalted butter – 3 tablespoons real maple syrup – Pinch of sea salt – ¼ cup powdered sugar*

Instructions: 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease an 8-inch square pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, egg, milk, and melted butter. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix just until combined. Gently fold in the blueberries.

Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for about 23 to 26 minutes, until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Maple Glaze: 1. While the cake is cooling, make the glaze. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the maple syrup and salt, then stir in the powdered sugar. 

Pour the warm glaze over the cake and use a pastry brush to distribute the glaze evenly.

Let the cake cool completely, slice, and serve. This cake should last at room temperature for up to 48 hours. Store in the fridge if you will not be able to eat it sooner.
