Scrape down sides of bowl and add the re­main­ing flour and milk. 4 Spread the bat­ter into the pre­pared pan. Sprin­kle the blue­ber­ries over the top, press­ing them gently into the bat­ter. Level the mix­ture with the back of a spoon. 5 Bake for 30 min­utes or un­til browned lightly and springy to touch. Cool for 10 min­utes then turn out onto wire rack to cool. 6 For the ic­ing, com­bine the sifted ic­ing sugar and ap­prox­i­mately 2 ta­ble­spoons of le­mon juice. Stir to com­bine and re­move any lumps. When the cake is com­pletely cold, driz­zle the ic­ing over cake and dec­o­rate with ex­tra blue­ber­ries. Uniced cake suit­able to freeze.
