Blueberry and Poppy Seed Bublanina / Bublanina s Čučoriedkami a Makom



Do you remember this recipe? Here is bublanina (a bubble cake) with whipped egg whites. And poppy seed oil, that gives the cake noticeable taste of ground poppy seeds.
This recipe is suitable for softer and literally lighter fruits such as raspberries, strawberries or blueberries. The cake is fluffy and the fruit won't "get lost" in the batter. Heavier and harder fruits, such as plums or peaches are for this kind of batter too heavy.
.......................................................................
Pamätáte si na tento recept? Tu je bublanina so snehom. A makovým olejom, ktorý dá bublanine zreteľnú chuť mletého maku.   
Tento recept je vhodný pre mäkkšie a doslova ľahšie ovocie, napríklad maliny, jahody, alebo čučoriedky. Piškóta je nadýchaná a ovocie sa v ceste "nestratí". Tvrdšie a doslova ťažšie ovocie, ako napríklad slivky, alebo broskyne, sú pre tento typ cesta príliš ťažké. 







Blueberry and Poppy Seed Bublanina

3 eggs, separated
3 tablespoons granulated sugar 
3 heaping tablespoons flour 
1/2 sachet (7 g) baking powder 
1 tablespoon poppy seeds 
1 tablespoon poppy seed oil (you can use another oil, such as neutral canola oil) 
zest of half a lemon 
1 heaping cup blueberries 

butter and flour to grease and dust baking pan 
lemon juice and flour to coat blueberries 
powdered sugar to dust bublanina 


Preheat oven to 190˚C.
Use butter and flour to grease and dust your 22x22 cm large baking tray with high side walls.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and poppy seeds.
Put egg whites and sugar into a bowl of electric mixer and whip until soft peaks form. Then add the egg yolks and mix briefly. Release the bowl and mix in the flour mix, oil and lemon zest using only a spatula. Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking tray.
Place blueberries coated in lemon juice and flour on top of the batter and put it immediately into the oven to bake for about 20 minutes, or until the surface is golden in colour and the toothpick comes out clean.
After baking, let the bublanina rest for a bit, slice it (4x4) and dust it with powdered sugar.

Makes 16 pieces.

Bublanina s Čučoriedkami a Makom

3 vajcia, oddeľte bielka od žĺtkov
3 lyžice kryštálového cukru
3 kopcovité lyžice múky
1/2 vrecka (7g) prášku do pečiva
1 lyžica maku
1 lyžica makového oleja (môžete použiť aj iny olej, napríklad neutrálny repkový)
kôra z polovice citróna
1 kopcovitý pohár čučoriedok

maslo a múka na vymastenie a vysypanie plechu na pečenie
ctrónová šťava a múka na obalenie čučoriedok
práškový cukor na posypanie upečenej bublaniny


Predhrejte rúru na 190˚C.
Maslom vymastite a múkou vysypte 22x22 cm veľký plech na pečenie s vysokými bokmi. 
V malej miske zmiešajte múku, prášok do pečiva a mak.
Dajte bielka a cukor do nádoby elektrického mixéra a vyšľahajte ľahký sneh. Potom pridajte žĺtky a ešte krátko premiešajte. Uvoľnite nádobu mixéra a už iba stierkou zľahka zamiešajte múku, olej a citrónovú kôru do snehu. 
Zmes vylejte na pripravený plech.
Na povrch poukladajte v citrónovej šťave a múke obalené čučoriedky a ihneď dajte piecť do rúry na cca 20 minút, alebo kým nie je povrch zlatavej farby a špáratko po vpichnutí do stredu plechy ostane čisté. 
Po upečení nechajte bublaninu krátko oddýchnuť, nakrájajte ju na 4x4 rady a povrch posypte práškovým cukrom.

Hello!
Can you comment on the measurements of flour and lemon juice to cover the blueberries?
Thank you!

Sure!
It's about 1 tbsp of lemon juice and about 2 tbsp of flour. Just enough to cover them, no more.

I just found out about poppy seed oil the other day and was wondering what it was like. My curiousity is piqued, I am going to have to go find some.
The cake looks delicious, my husband always wants me to make bublanina, now maybe I'll actually try.
Love the blog, wonderful pics and videos :)

Thanks, Naomi!

The poppy seed oil tastes just like your ground poppy seeds would. The taste is not overpowering. It is very sophisticated and pleasant. With the same aftertaste. At least, the brand I have does.
I like to have it with my yogurt (plus some nuts, lemon and a drizzle of honey).
I highly recommend to try poppy seed oil :)

Good luck with baking ....!
