Blueberry & Lemon Loaf Cake

image

So I had baked a cake last week but fancied a little more! Not too rich just purely a delightful treat to go with a nice cup of afternoon tea. What better than lemon and blueberries to pick you up with sweet and sour notes running through.
A very quick loaf cake to bake without any fuss but with ultimate flavour! Tasted also a little like a Madeira cake but with a lemony hint!

My little one supervised the whole process today and helped grease and line the tin! Which I think made it even sweeter and more special! His response was when he first had a mouthful, “Mummy this cake is yummy!”, so it must be! As 3 year olds especially mine don’t lie! Lol 😉

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Much love and light D x

150g blueberries
175g self raising flour
Pinch of salt
160g granulated sugar
125g unsalted butter softened

Zest of 1 lemon
½ tsp lemon extract
5 tbsp milk

METHOD

• Preheat oven to 180°c/350°f and line and grease a loaf tin

• Cream the butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl or food processor, until it looks a little like grainy melted vanilla ice cream

• Beat in the eggs and combine well. Add the lemon zest and extract, stir well

• Throw in the salt, fold in the flour and pour in the milk. Mix gently

• Spread out half of the batter in the tin, scatter the blueberries (dusted with a little flour) over it and then cover with the rest of the batter

    • Thank you lovely! I’m so glad you like it. My little one adores cooking, especially baking! Knowing that he will be treated with whatever comes out of the oven! We polished off the cake this afternoon and he was asking for more. So will be baking something new soon xxx

  1. Oh, I love lemon cake. It’s something to do with the sweet and tangy combination, absolutely delicious! The addition of blueberries is gorgeous too. So nice to have a little ‘pop’ of fruit in each slice. Glad that you and your little one got to bake together. I remember times that I had with my mum fondly too. thanks for sharing this lovely recipe xx
