Lemon Blueberry Loaf

Time has once again slipped by very quickly resulting in a lack of updates, but with (well in my opinion) a good excuse. Hubby & I, with my 85 year old Dad in tow were lucky to enjoy a month away, part of that doing a two week tour down the coast of Croatia – the country my Grandfather was born in. What a beautiful country – lovely scenery, friendly locals and lots of good wine and food.

How lucky am I to have experienced such a beautiful country. However, back to reality and to the topic of today’s post.

Are you one of those Pinterest people who continually post recipes and projects, with the best intentions of trying each and every one of them? Guilty as charged!! Well, I’ve pinned so many great sounding recipes with delicious looking pics, that I thought it was about time I made the effort and started cooking up a few of them.

This Lemon Blueberry Loaf recipe was posted on Penneylane.com. It’s super easy to make with the goodness of blueberries and rolled oats, and the lemony taste from the lemon zest just adds that something extra to what may have been an ordinary tasting loaf.

No fresh blueberries on hand? Well I just used frozen blueberries which I made sure had thawed and were drained in a sieve. The original post suggests dusting your blueberries in flour to stop them from sinking to the bottom of the mixture before baking. I tried this and it works a treat as you can see from my photo. I stored this loaf in the fridge and each  time served it with a light spread of butter – each bite was deliciously moist until the end. Definitely give this one a go – you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Penneylane for this delicious recipe.

Sliced with a spread of butter, this deliciously moist loaf won't disappoint.
