Yoghurt blueberry cake

When I saw Anncoo's post on Yoghurt blueberry cake (and her many other recipes), I just can't help but to bake them right away! Her cake looks so pretty & dainty :)

Just like what she has mentioned, the cake really tasted like cheesecake, light and moist. We had it chilled and I made some blueberry sauce with the leftover blueberries - about half a punnet, and drizzled on the cake. Our Saturday breakfast before Z's swimming class!

I'm copying the recipe here for easy reference, original recipe is here.

Blueberry sauce
