Vegan Blueberry Cake with Yuzu Juice

with the lemon of a different color

By: Anne-Sophie Hoffman
Yuzu, who-zu? If you haven’t heard of yuzu yet, you’ll be seeing more of this trendy fruit very soon. Lemon’s little sister brings a fruity, delicately astringent note to our blueberry cake. Once you’ve had your first taste, you’ll want to have yuzu on hand all the time.


  • Preheat the oven to 180° C.
  • Mix the Protein Muffins mix with the oil and the water in a large bowl. Mix until they form a smooth batter.
  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or grease it.
  • Put the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake the blueberry cake at 180° C for 35-40 minutes.
  • While the cake is baking, make the syrup for soaking it. Put all the ingredients into a small bowl and stir well.
  • When the blueberry cake is finished, take it out of the oven. Pierce it with a toothpick several times while still warm. Pour the syrup evenly over the cake so that it absorbs the syrup. Leave it in the loaf pan until it has fully cooled.
  • Meanwhile, make the frosting. Whisk all the ingredients for the frosting together in a bowl.
  • Spread the frosting evenly over the blueberry cake.
  • Garnish the blueberry cake with fresh blueberries and yuzu zest.
  • Enjoy!
