Blueberry Lemon Loaf

I really believe this is my favorite quick bread of all time. I love dense fruity cakes with tea and coffee. I am not one for really sweet cakes though.

This one is lemony, a little touch of sweetness and no frosting. I will tell you a little secret why I don't like frosted cakes.

Besides my dear departed dad. I too liked plain cake. I would bake for him all the time when he was alive. We were the only two that didn't like a frosted cookie, cake in our home.

The plain good ole tasting pound cake with fruit or cream on top was our perfect idea of a dessert treat.

I wished I had known how to make this back then he would have loved it as much as I do.

Blueberry Lemon Loaf Recipe



Blueberry Lemon Loaf Recipe

1/3 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup overflowing blueberries

Topping after baking:

1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice 
(for me this is what makes the loaf perfect!)

Heavily grease a loaf pan and I would also use non stick and flour. 

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat the sugar and butter together a few minutes. Add the eggs, lemon juice till blended.

At a little at a time add the flour, salt, baking powder and peel to this wet mixture until blended. Fold in the blueberries.
Bake for 1 hour or until middle is firm using toothpick method.

Cool 3 or 4 minutes and invert onto cooling rack or wax paper before adding lemon/sugar glaze topping.


 The sugar glaze adds an extra lemony flavor by using the 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons lemon juice mixed together and pour over warm loaf.

Alternate topping garnish: dust with  powdered sugar or one other option use a glaze using a powdered sugar, lemon extract and water frosting.
