Blueberry Lemon Loaf

READY IN: 55mins
YIELD: 2 Loaves




  • Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
  • Butter two 8 x 4 inch loaf pans and line the bottom and two long sides of the pans with parchment paper. I use one sheet and let it overhang a bit, then use the parchment to lift the loaf out of the pan when ready.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until mixed.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt and stir with a fork.
  • Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, alternating with the milk. Mix just until combined.
  • In the bowl that you mixed the flour in, add the blueberries, lemon zest and 4 tablespoons of flour, tossing gently until coated. The flour will help prevent the berries from sinking to the bottom.
  • Carefully and quickly fold the berries into the batter, then divide the batter equally between the prepared pans.
  • Bake in preheated oven for between 45 - 55 minutes, or until a cake taster inserted into the centre of the loafves comes out clean.
  • Cool the loaves in the pan for 15 minutes, then remove from the pan using the parchment paper handles and let cool on a rack.
  • Combine the juice and icing sugar in a bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth. Drizzle the top of the cooled loaf with the glaze, letting it pour down the sides.
