Blueberry Loaf Cake



Blueberries are like my new found love. I have been buying them, eating them and adding them into everything and anything possible. So much as that my drafts even reflect how many blueberry recipes I have… hehe… Sharing with you some of the blueberry recipes already on the blog…

Blueberry Smoothie

Easy Blueberry Muffins

Chocolate Blueberry Pudding

Blueberry Cheesecake Popsicles

Blueberry Chia Overnight Oats

Blueberry Lassi


This decadent, buttery loaf is adapted from here. I first baked this to carry it to my umma’s cousins house when we were invited for lunch. She totally loved the bake and was all praises about it. I then baked this once for her to carry it for my folks back home and also made half the recipe for a small cake for ourselves. The tangy blueberry bites in between the butter loaf is the highlight of this simple loaf. This is one of the rare bakes that have gone to get tried more than once, since we all loved it so much. Off to the recipe…

  3. Yum! I love how perfectly it is baked with that nice golden crust. Blue or any berries are good only when it is added to something sugary πŸ˜› so I kinda avoid it but once in a while we do indulge. All purpose flour is handsdown the best for taste and texture!
