Baked by Sa.
Recipe sourced from - BBC Good Food

Soft butter - 175 gms 
Golden caster sugar - 175 gms
Eggs - large - 3
Self-raising flour 225 gms
Baking powder - 1tsp
Vanilla extract - 2 tsp

Preheat the oven to 180C
Line the base of  round cake tin with non-stick baking paper

Place butter, sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder and vanilla in a bowl
Beat with a wooden spoon or with a hand electric beater till lligher in colour ( generally 2-3 minutes depending on what you are using)
Beat in 4 tbsp soured cream, then stir in half the blueberries with a large spoon.

Tip the mixture into the tin and level it.
Bake for 50 minutes until it is risen, feels firm to the touch and springs back when lightly pressed.
Cool for 10 minutes, take out of the tin
Leave to finish cooling on a wire rack.

Beat soft cheese with icing sugar and remaining soured cream in bowl till smooth and creamy.
Spread over top of cooled cake ( if the cake is warm the frosting will melt!!)

The cake will keep in the fridge for a couple of days. Bring it to room temperature for about an hour before serving.
