ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Grease and flour a loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl combine the flours, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Using an electric mixer, mix for one minute at low speed to combine.
  • Combine eggs, yogurt, vanilla and lemon extract in a medium bowl. Lightly whisk to combine. It will look like a creamy yellow yogurt.
  • Add butter and half of the egg mixture to the flour mixture. Mix at high speed for one minute.
  • Add remaining egg mixture in 2 batches, mixing 30 seconds after each addition. Batter should be light and fairly fluffy.
  • Gently fold in the blueberries. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake one hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes clean.
  • Remove from oven and run sharp knife around edges of cake. Let rest 10 minutes. Turn out onto a rack and cool completely.

    I always enjoy the combo of lemon & blueberries, & this pound cake is right in there! And, I especially liked the use of the Greek yogurt AND the whole wheat flour, which gives the loaf a whole new dimension! Will definitely be making this one again!
