Lemon Blueberry Loaf Cake

Well, my friends, we made it! The calendar says yesterday was the first day of spring! I fully know we aren’t out of the woods quite yet, but at least we’re inching our way out of winter. 

This was a really intense winter, even for Michigan. I’m a life-long Michigander, so I “get” winter. But man oh man, this one came with Bomb Cyclone inducing Polar Vortexes and loads of canceled school days. It was definitely not a wimpy winter.

When blueberries and lemons start showing up more abundantly in the grocery stores, I get really happy about this. I adore the flavor combo and it just cries spring to me. 


I’ve been making Lemon Blueberry Loaf Cake for awhile and my girls devour it. They asked me to make it again, and since it is the first day of spring, I thought why not. 

It really isn’t a “cake” in the sense of layers and frosting, but it has a lovely cake-like texture, and it isn’t necessarily a quick-bread either. It falls somewhere in between, you won’t care what its called once you’ve tried it. 



Lemon Blueberry Loaf Cake makes a lovely addition to casual weekend brunches or holiday mornings. Whipping one up takes just a few minutes and while it is baking, go ahead and enjoy a cup of coffee

With a lovely lemon glaze topping this loaf, it makes a great dessert. Try to use fresh lemon, if you don’t have fresh you can certainly use bottled, no worries.

Some tips for making Lemon Blueberry Loaf Cake: 

  • Spray your pan! If you want to get it out of the pan to fully get the glaze down the sides, you’ll need spray.
  • If you don’t have real lemons, go ahead and use bottled lemon juice. 
  • Are your blueberries frozen? No worries, use them.
  • I used plain Greek yogurt, you can substitute with sour cream or regular plain yogurt.
