Lemon Blueberry Loaf

Lemon loaf cake itself is very refreshing and good. Add a handful of fresh blueberries to it and it is robust with flavours and much better! I made this on hubby dear's birthday. Made it a couple of days ahead and then poured the freshly made tartalicious glaze on top. All that was leftover were the crumbs.

This is one of THE easiest recipe one could ever find. We all have these ingredients on hand. And the fruit is interchangeable. You don't have blueberries, throw in any berries or any fruit that can withstand the heat of the oven and you will have a fantastic cake to go with your tea, coffee or even better, brunch with friends and family.
