lemon blueberry bread-
I love European sponge cakes like this one here. The tricky part is getting the flour added so the mixture doesn’t flatten and become dense. I found a new way of preparing sponge cakes and will use the concept from now on in my baking, it’s phenomenal (I use it in this Poppyseed Roulade recipe). The mixture never flattens and the sponge cake is so soft and airy, comes out perfect every time.
So, I thought to myself, perhaps this idea would work for a lemon blueberry cake loaf. I tried it. Oh, hold me back, folks. The whole loaf was gone in like 5 minutes. (The fact that we have five munchkins doesn’t help, but you get the drift.) It’s pure perfection. I agree, not the typical way to make a cake loaf, but it’s SOO good!

This lemon blueberry bread is a delicious recipe, and I believe it because of how well the ingredients flow together. I really like the taste that the lemon and lemon zest adds lemon blueberry bread. It’s such a wonderful compliment to the tart and lightly sweet blueberries. It brings kind of a sweet and sour taste this lemon blueberry cake loaf in every bite
TIP: So that the blueberries don’t all sink to the bottom of the pan, add them to the pan instead of into the bowl. Makes a huge difference.

This lemon blueberry cake loaf can also be frozen, just don’t add the glaze. Completely thaw cake loaf before enjoying.
When you thaw the frozen cake loaf, I even like to put it into my oven for a few minutes and get it warm again. It gives is a “just baked” taste!

Best Lemon Blueberry Cake Loaf
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and butter or coat with nonstick baking spray and lightly dust with flour.
- In a bowl add the blueberries and gently coat with the 1 tsp flour. Set aside.
- In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt. Set aside.
- Separate egg whites from egg yolks. Place egg whites in one bowl and egg yolks in another.
- On high speed, with a mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly add sugar, continue beating until stiff peaks form.
- Add sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice and oil to the egg yolks. Beat until well incorporated and the mixture gains some volume, about 2 minutes. (You can use the same whisks as you did for the egg whites, no need to wash them).
- Pour egg yolk mixture in egg whites/sugar. On low-speed beat just until everything is combined.
- Add flour mixture in two parts. Add half the flour beat on low-speed, add remaining flour and beat again until well combined.
- Pour 2/3 of the mixture into your pan. Add 1/3 of the blueberries. Pour remaining mixture and spread evenly. Add remaining blueberries.
