Chilean Blueberry Kuchen Recipe

Ingredients

  • 600 g condensed milk
  • 300 g fresh blueberries
  • 300 g all-purpose flour (without baking powder)
  • 200 g butter
  • 100 g powdered sugar
  • 3 eggs

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, combine sifted flour, powdered sugar, and butter. Mix with a wooden spoon until you get a sandy texture. Add one egg and stir until fully integrated without kneading.
  2. Roll out the dough and distribute it over the surface of a greased kuchen mold, stretching it gently. Seal any possible cracks with your fingers, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200°C (396°F) for at least 10 minutes. Bake the kuchen dough for 10 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  4. Thoroughly wash the blueberries, removing any dirt or damaged fruits. Reserve them in a bowl and add condensed milk and 2 beaten egg yolks. Mix gently and pour over the pre-cooked dough in the mold. Return it to the oven and bake until the surface begins to caramelize. Remove and cool to room temperature.
