Blueberry Cheese Butter Cake

I made this when my aunt invited us for her Diwali open house....It makes a 9 inch round / square cake..buttery with a lovely combination of juicy blueberries and cheese..makes the ordinary butter cake extra special...worth the try..

You need :

250 gms butter
3/4 cup fine sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 medium sized eggs
250 gms cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 rd cup milk
2 1/4 cup self raising flour
150 gm fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 160C.  Beat butter and sugar till fluffy using paddle attachment. Add in vanilla. Add in the eggs, one at a time..beating well between each addition.
Change to whisk attachment and add in cream cheese and milk. Whisk till batter is smooth. Add the flour and whisk till combined. Using a spatula, fold in the blueberries.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for about 45-50 minutes or till skewer inserted comes out clean.
Place on wire rack to cool before removing from pan.
