Blueberry and Chamomile Cake

Lemon, Blueberry and Chamomile Cream Cake:

You guys you guys ! I know i am like super late in updating this Blueberry and Chamomile Cake recipe , but hey better late than never 😀 This cake is super light lemon cake with the juiciest and the plumpest of the blueberries, the cake is sandwiched with light airy chamomile whipped cream and homemade blueberry jam. The blueberry jam can be made days earlier, we have been binge eating the jam at home. The Chamomile cream is one of the elements that need to be prepared a night earlier for fixing this cake.
