How To Make Lemon Blueberry Loaf Cake

via Chef Anna Olson


Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).  Grease and flour an 8 ½ -x-4 ½ -inch loaf tin, lining the bottom and sides of the pan with parchment paper. Allow a little extra it extends over the sides.

Add the sugar into a large mixing bowl and add the zested lemons into it. Be sure that the zest is nice and fine.

Whisk the ingredients together. Next, whisk in the eggs and follow with the cream, oil, and vanilla.

Add flour, baking powder, and salt to a sift, holding it over your mixing bowl. Sift and whisk until the batter is smooth.

Next, gently add your blueberries to the mixture and give a very light stir. Pour your batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 60-70 minutes.

To see if your cake is ready, insert a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean, it is baked.

Leave your cake in the loaf pan for at least 20 minutes to cool. Once cooled, remove and place carefully on a  cooling rack.

Whisk the lemon juice into the icing sugar by hand. The consistency should be smooth and flowing.  Pour this over the cooled loaf cake and allow it to drip down over the sides. 

Anna says it’s best to leave the cake for about an hour. This lets the glaze set and will ensure better slicing. If you can’t wait, it can be eaten straight away.

The loaf will keep, well-wrapped on the counter for up to 4 days.
