Ingredients

  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 - 3 teaspoons lemon zest**
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 5.3 oz vanilla dairy-free yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup blueberries * fresh or frozen
  • 5 - 6 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 - 2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Heat your oven to 350F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper on the bottom and spray over paper and sides of pan with vegetable spray.
  • In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, ground flax and cornstarch. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl combine the sugar and lemon zest. Stir to combine, so that the sugar is coated with the lemon zest.
  • Add the vegetable oil, yogurt, and apple cider vinegar to the sugar mixture. Stir to combine.
  • Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of flour mixture over blueberries (if using frozen berries. If using fresh, skip this step).
  • Add sugar mixture to dry mixture. Stir until combined.
  • Very gently fold in blueberries to spread them around the batter.
  • Pour into your prepared pan. Place in the oven on the middle rack and bake for 50 minutes.
  • While the cake is baking prepare the Lemon Sauce by combining 1/2 cup powdered sugar with the lemon juice. Stir to combine.
  • When the cake is done, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes or so. Then pour all but 2 tablespoons of the Lemon Sauce over the hot cake. Set aside.
  • Create the Glaze by adding remaining powdered sugar to the 2 tablespoons of Lemon Sauce. Stir until you achieve a nice consistency.
  • When you're ready to serve the cake, pour the glaze over the cake and serve.

Notes

* I used frozen blueberries ** I zest the lemon first and then juice it.
