“This lemony cake is topped with Blackberry Sauce for a pretty presentation.”
2 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs
⅓ cup low-fat milk
3 tablespoons canola oil
1½ cups unsifted cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Blackberry Sauce, (recipe follows)
Confectioners’ sugar for dusting
1Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray. Add breadcrumbs, tilting the pan to evenly coat the inside. Tap out the excess.
2Combine milk and oil in a measuring cup. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl; set aside.
3Combine eggs, egg yolk, sugar and lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed until the mixture is thick and pale and falls in a ribbon when the beaters are lifted, about 5 minutes. Beat in lemon zest and vanilla.
4Sift half of the reserved dry ingredients over the beaten egg mixture and fold in with a rubber spatula until blended. Fold in half of the milk mixture. Repeat these steps with the remaining dry ingredients and milk mixture.
5Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Let the cake cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then turn out of the pan and place right-side up on the rack to cool completely.
6Meanwhile, make Blackberry Sauce.
7Dust the cake with confectioners' sugar, slice and serve with the Blackberry Sauce alongside.
