Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Loaf

Picture from Lemon Drop recipe from Sweet Pea's Kitchen

Lemon  Blueberry Yogurt Loaf

What an awesome picture! I found this via Pinterest and the first time I saw it there was no link! I panicked, I had to find this recipe so off I went on the search. Didn't take long, I eventually found the recipe that went with the picture from Lemon Drop who made it and took this picture. Isn't that a great picture? I love the colors and the lighting and it makes me want it! That is always a good picture when it does that.

Looks pretty simple to make.....

For the Loaf:

§  1 1/2 cups + 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided
§  2 teaspoons baking powder
§  1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
§  1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
§  1 cup sugar
§  3 large eggs
§  2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (approximately 2 lemons)
§  1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
§  1/2 cup vegetable oil
§  1 1/2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen, thawed and rinsed

For the Lemon Syrup:
 §  1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
§  1/3 cup sugar
For the Lemon Glaze:
§  1 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
§  2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


1.       Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bottom and sides of one 9 x 5-inch loaf pans; dust with flour, tapping out excess.
2.      In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
3.      In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, sugar, eggs, lemon zest, vanilla and oil. Slowly whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix the blueberries with the remaining tablespoon of flour, and fold them very gently into the batter.
4.      Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing loaf to a wire rack on top of a baking sheet.
5.      While the loaf is cooling, make the lemon syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir together the lemon juice and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved. Once dissolved, continue to cook for 3 more minutes. Remove from the heat; set aside.
6.      Use a toothpick to poke holes in the tops and sides of the warm loaf. Brush the top and sides of the loaf with the lemon syrup. Let the syrup soak into the cake and brush again. Let the cake cool completely.
7.      To make the lemon glaze, in a small bowl, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar and 2-3 tablespoons of the lemon juice. The mixture should be thick but pourable. Add up to another tablespoon of lemon juice if the mixture is too stiff. Pour the lemon glaze over the top of each loaf and let it drip down the sides. Let the lemon glaze harden, about 15 minutes, before serving.
Yields: 1-9×5 loaf

Enjoy, and I would love to hear if you make this. I am going to make it this weekend since I just make Apple Fritters with glaze yesterday. So I am taking a few days of from glaze. Just a few though. :)
