Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F. Grease the baking pan(s) with a little margarine.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream the margarine with ¾ of the sugar using a mixer, about 3-4 min until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add 2 teaspoon lemon zest. Add the flour mixture in 3 portions, alternating with the soy milk. Mix well until homogeneous then fold in the blueberries using a spatula.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the baking pan(s) and bake in the middle of the oven 1 ¼ h. Check the cake with a toothpick or knife to see if it is cooked through. When done, pull it out of the oven and let it cool down a few minutes.
  5. Pour the lemon juice in a small microwave-safe bowl. Add the remaining sugar and microwave, uncovered, on medium-high 1 min until hot and syrupy. Pour the syrup over the cake(s) then let it cool at least 30 min before serving.
