Blueberry Loaf Cake

This recipe was originally posted by 12 Tomatoes.  I actually read the recipe ahead of time and saw that I needed a 9×5 loaf pan for this so I actually bought one instead of ignoring it like I did for the French Toast Loaf.  This blog is really getting expensive.

Here’s what you need:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 2 tbsp
1 1/2 cups blueberries (thawed and drained, if using frozen)
1 cup sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
powdered sugar

First, mix together the 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.  Set aside.  I didn’t take a picture so good luck figuring this step out on your own.

Cream together the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy (about 4-5 minutes).

Beat in the eggs one at a time.  Then mix in the vanilla and lemon zest (which my mother would never use).  This looks appetizing AF.

Now you’re going to alternate adding in the flour mixture and the Greek yogurt, starting and ending with the flour.  I just did half the flour, yogurt and then the remaining flour.  Mix until just combined.

In a separate bowl, mix your blueberries with the remaining flour.  Now, when I was making this I was like “You just told me to mix in all the flour. Where is this remaining flour you speak of?” Only later did I realize that the ingredients did say plus 2 tbsp.  This apparently stops the blueberries from sinking.  Since I’m an idiot, I didn’t coat them in flour.  I didn’t care about sinking blueberries.

Fold in the blueberries and place in your greased loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 55 minutes.  Cool on a baking rack for 20-30 minutes before taking it out of the pan.  Dust with powdered sugar if you give a shit.

This was delicious.  I, unfortunately, did not eat this fast enough and it went bad but the pieces I did have were awesome.  Lemon and blueberry go really well together.  I will definitely make this again and maybe even remember to coat the blueberries with flour.  I was also thinking this would be even better with a lemon glaze on top.  I’ll report back on that.
