This cake is not artificially flavored, so you donot taste the bitterness like most store bought stuff. While fresh lemon juice adds the needed tartness to the cake, fresh lemon zest adds the needed flavor. Blueberries make the cake juicy and soft.


INGREDIENTS TO MAKE LEMON BLUEBERRY BREAD
  • All purpose Flour : Measure your flour correctly, loosen flour from the container and fill it with a spoon. scrape the flour to the brim with the back of the knife. Do not pack the cup with flour. Save 2 tablespoons of flour to coat the blueberries.
  • Baking Powder : This is the leavining agent that rises the cake. Always ensure to use fresh baking powder.
  • Butter/ Oil : While butter makes the cake richer in taste, i use refined oil in most cakes, if storing the cake in the refrigerator butter make it hard.
  • Lemons : Use fresh preferably Meyer lemons as they are sweet compared to others. Sqeeze the lemon juice just before adding to the cake mix. Lemon juice sitting for long might end up being bitter.
  • Lemon Zest : Do not skip this as this is the most important ingredients that adds the flavor to the lemon cake and glaze. Wash you lemons thoroughly and scape only the yellow part of the skin. Do not scape the white layer, it make the zest bitter. Again zest your lemon right before adding to the cake mix.
  • Salt : Avoid it if using salted butter, adding salt to the cake brings out the sweet and tartness from the cake.
  • Sour Cream : Sour cream adds the needed moisture to the cake.
  • Milk : Needed wet ingredient to bind/loosen the flour, as we are not using any eggs. Use 2% or whole milk.
  • Sugar : Make the cake sweeter. Regular granulated sugar works fine.
  • Blueberries : Fresh or Frozen blueberries can be used in this recipe, prefer using fresh berries during season. Do not forget to coat the blueberies in flour. This keeps them from sinking to the bottom of the cake. If using frozen blueberies refer tips.
  • Confectioners Sugar : to make the lemon glaze if you prefer.

The taste and texture is same while using fresh or frozen blueberries to make this cake. Only the baking time varies betwwen the both.


There is no need to thaw frozen blueberries, just coat them in flour as you would for fresh berries.


Increase the bake time to 10 more minutes to bake the cake.


Prefer using fresh blueberries during the season and frozen in non season.
