{ Interior Inspiration } Lemon and Blueberry Loaf Cake

I thought I'd share another recipe this week as it's such a good'un! I found it on the Good Food website. Loaf cakes are a tea party staple but are so easy to make, plus hold lots of flavour, that there should always be some excuse to have one every so often. This recipe is for a lemon and blueberry variety.

- 175g butter, softened
- 100ml Greek yoghurt
- 2 tbsp lemon curd
- 3 eggs
- juice and zest of one lemon
- 200g self raising flour
- 175g golden caster sugar
- Punnet of blueberries

1) Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3.
2) Grease a 2lb loaf tin and line with a long strip of baking parchment.
3) Put the yogurt, lemon curd, the softened butter, eggs, lemon zest, flour and caster sugar into a large mixing bowl. Mix until the batter just comes together.
4) Scrape half into the prepared tin. Sprinkle half of the blueberries into the tin and scrape the rest of the batter on top, then scatter the other half of the 85g berries on top.
5) Bake for 1 hr 10 mins-1 hr 15 mins until golden, and a skewer poked into the centre comes out clean.

You could decorate with icing sugar mixed with lemon juice, but it's scummy left as it is.

Love and lacery,
