    In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together, until pale and creamy. Beat in zest.

    Add combined No Egg™ Egg Replacer and water, in three portions, beating well after each addition. Add a little of the flour if the mixture begins to curdle.

    Lightly fold in flour and juice. Fold frozen berries through. Spoon into pan, smoothing top. Sprinkle with extra sugar.
  • 5
    Bake 55-60 minutes, until cooked when tested with a skewer. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Lift onto a wire rack to cool completely.

    To make icing: sift icing sugar into a bowl. Add butter and water. Beat well until smooth. Spread over cake. Sprinkle with coconut and top with fresh blueberries.

Notes

Always use pure icing sugar if you are gluten-intolerant-not icing-sugar mixture, which contains a little cornflour to help prevent lumps.
