Baking: Blueberry Lemon Loaf Cake


IMG_4067.jpg

Just look at that molten blueberry goodness and gorgeous soft crumb! I wolfed down 3 slices of these straight out of the oven. Zesty, buttery and fluffy at the same time, this makes for a wonderful breakfast loaf or afternoon tea cake. I’m not a big fan of overly sweet, rich cakes. So this really hit the spot for me.

What i absolutely love about this cake is that it’s not too sweet, heavy or overpowering. The blueberries and lemon juice give it just the right amount of tartness that keeps you going back for more.

It’s moist, has a beautiful fluffy texture and tastes divine hot out of the oven. For a great breakfast idea, you can also refrigerate this and have it with butter in the morning!

Super versatile, and really easy. You could even use the batter in muffin cups for a delicious lemon blueberry muffin. Try it, and let me know how it goes for you. Good luck! x
