Finland: Blueberry Cake

2 tsp baking powder
100 g whole wheat flour
100 g hazelnut meal
100 g unsalted soft butter
160 g sugar
5 eggs
butter and bread crumbs for the form
300 g light sour cream
3 tbsp vanilla pudding powder
1 envelope vanilla sugar (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
finely grated zest of 1/2 lemon
1/4 tsp ground allspice (or anise)
300 g blueberries

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Combine baking powder, flour, and hazelnut meal. In another bowl, beat the butter, 80 g sugar, and 2 eggs until creamy. Mix in flour mix, cover, and let rest 10 minutes. Butter a 26 cm round springform and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Shake out surplus bread crumbs. Spread batter into form and bake in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes. Whisk together remaining 80 g sugar, 3 eggs, sour cream, pudding powder, vanilla sugar, lemon zest, and allspice. Fold in blueberries. Spread blueberries mix on the cake and return to oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes. If the center of the cake is not set, switch on the broiler for 1-2 minutes (watch the cake!) until golden brown.
