Stick blueberry cake and beer BBQ

Stick blueberry cake (pudding)

The color is all natural. The cake is made from blueberry jam and the jam is thoroughly mixed in the batter, hence giving the uniform color. Blueberry is considered a health food, so perhaps you can have an extra slice without guilt. The recipe is available here.

Research suggests that basting meat in beer before grilling reduces the chance of potentially cancerous chemicals being formed during cooking.

Researchers marinated pork for four hours in three different types of beer - lager, non-alcoholic lager and a black beer. The meat was then cooked to well done on a charcoal grill. The results found that all of the beers reduced the levels of eight types of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), a chemical linked with cancer which forms when meat is cooked at very high temperatures.

The black beer proved most effective, cutting the levels by more than half, the researchers said. The non-alcoholic beer was the least effective, although it did still reduce levels.

This is a very useful tip. I wonder if drinking beer as well helps reduce cancer risk more.


  1. Oh blueberry in a sticky cake, sounds delish! And I guess it is time to invest in Guinness lol.

  2. Blueberry and sticky = delicious :-)
    I am starting to look for beer-based meat marinades then ;-)

    1. Thank you.
      I've never seen beer based marinates, but seen plenty of beer:)
