Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries (tossed in 1 tablespoon flour to prevent sinking)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan, or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Then, mix in the Greek yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Gently fold in the blueberries until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it out evenly.
  8. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, and the top is golden brown.
  9. Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Once cooled, slice and serve your Lemon Blueberry Loaf, and enjoy every moist and flavorful bite!
