Ingredients

1 1/2 cup white flour (all purpose) 200 g
1 1/4 tsp baking powder 3 g
1/8 tsp salt 0.4 g
6 tbsp butter, unsalted 80 g

Before you start

A hand-held or stand mixer will make things easier for this recipe.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F. Butter the baking pan(s).
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream the butter with ¾ of the sugar using a mixer, about 3-4 min until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add 2 teaspoon lemon zest. Add the flour mixture in 3 portions, alternating with the milk. Mix well until homogeneous then fold in the blueberries using a spatula.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the baking pan(s) and bake in the middle of the oven 1 ¼ h. Check the cake with a toothpick or knife to see if it is cooked through. When done, pull it out of the oven and let it cool down a few minutes.
  5. Pour the lemon juice in a small microwave-safe bowl. Add the remaining sugar and microwave, uncovered, on medium-high 1 min until hot and syrupy. Pour the syrup over the cake(s) then let it cool at least 30 min before serving.

I am allergic to wheat, gluten, dairy and eggs... so whenever there is a recipe of this nature, I have to fix it myself.. I find it is just easier to google a gluten-free vegan recipe... so far I haven't found one that I like. It looks good though.

the recipe does not mention the type of baking dish. I look at the picture and assume it is a loaf pan. When I do make it, I will add more blueberries.

I doubled the blueberries as suggested and reduced a small amount of the sugar. The lemon blueberry flavor was delicious. Next time I will take it out of the oven a little earlier.

The lemon flavour was nice, be careful not to overcook it as it gets rather dry. I agree there should be more blueberries!
