All-purpose flour 2 cups
Baking powder 1.5 teaspoons
Salt 0.5 teaspoon
Unsalted butter 1 cup, softened
Sugar 1 cup
Lemons (zested) 2
Fresh blueberries 1.5 cups
Vanilla extract 1 teaspoon
Milk 0.5 cup
Preheat the Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C. While it’s heating, grease a loaf pan and set it aside.
Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Add Eggs: Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next.
Infuse with Lemon: Stir in the lemon zest and vanilla extract, blending well.
Alternate Additions: Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the flour mixture.
Fold in Blueberries: Gently fold in the fresh blueberries, ensuring they’re evenly distributed throughout the batter.
Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for about 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool and Serve: Once baked, allow the loaf to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice, serve, and savor every bite!
