I used frozen blueberries from USA. Which my aunt got for me during her last visit from USA.

6 egg yolks
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tbsp fine sugar
120g Cake Flour

120ml fresh milk
120g frozen blueberries

Ingredients B
6 egg whites(room temperature)
100g fine sugar

Method:
1. Soak frozen blueberries in milk for 1 hour.
2. Drain the milk, set aside.
3. Add sugar and lemon juice to mix with blueberries.
4. Lightly whip egg yolks and add milk.
5. Add cake flour to and fold in till evenly combined, make sure they are no lumps.
6. Whip egg whites till foamy, then add sugar to whip till it peaks.
7. Stop the mixer and add Egg yolk batter and fold in till evenly mixed.
8. Finally add blueberries to fold in.
9. Pour into chiffon pan and baked in preheated oven 180C for 10 mins, then lower the temperature to 160C and bake for a further 25 mins.

Gina, I bought the fresh blueberries. Do I still need to soak them for 1 hr?

What's the purpose of mixing the blueberries with the sugar and lemon juice? I don't have lemon at home. :(

How do you prevent the fruits from sinking to the bottom of the cake? I always have that problem.

I would still soak it even if its fresh.
Lemon juice is added to 'treat' the blueberries so it won't change colour during the baking process. If not, it will turn the cake into a pale grey colour.
Sugar is added because of the lemon juice.

I put the fruits last and fold in minutes before baking. So its evenly spread out. And won't have time to sink to the bottom.
