Blueberry Lemon Loaf Cake

Hey Everyone! I don’t know about you guys, but I love baking bread at 3 a.m with a little contemporary music playing and a few black candles lit. That’s just me though. I always feel motivated to bake yummy treats for my family in the middle of the night. Who wouldn’t want to greet the morning with freshly baked Blueberry Lemon Loaf Cake? This recipe of mine is very simple to follow and insanely delicious!

Anytime I bake with blueberries, I add fresh lemon zest and freshly grated nutmeg. I highly recommend abstaining from the ground stuff because it is no where near as good. Fresh nutmeg is cheaper too in the long run! Top this blueberry lemon loaf cake with a buttery brown sugar streusel and serve with coffee. 

There is this big myth that claims you have to dust your blueberries with flour prior to adding them into your cake batter. It’s not true. If you feel like you must, then I won’t stop you. I hope you and your loved ones enjoy this light and fluffy, buttery sweet and aromatic blueberry lemon loaf cake. You may want to make two of them!
