 Lemon and blueberry…. yum.   Lemon and poppyseed…. yumbo.  All 3 together!?  Are you seeing fireworks and dancing people? Is that just me?  I am so glad I decided to make this delicious loaf.  The berries give a nice burst of flavor and the lemon icing add a tart sweetness that is to die for.  Also, I used my dad’s awesome camera and have some nice quality pics to show you!

First, the line up. + flour & sugar.

 Cream up some butter and sugar.

 Once you add of our the wet ingredients, add your dry.

 Rinse off some blueberries…

Coat them with some flour.

 Take your beautiful batter,

And add in your blueberries.

Fold them together…

 And place in greased loaf pan.

 Bake for about an hour…

 Then make an icing out of lemon juice and powdered sugar…


 Let the loaf cool, then remove from pan and enjoy!


 Lemon, Blueberry & Poppyseed Loaf


1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup plain Greek style yogurt
1 tbsp lemon zest (takes about two lemons)
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp poppy seeds
1 cup Blueberries (+ 1 tsp. flour)
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup. powedered sugar (possibly more or less depending on how thick you want icing)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F), start the batter by creaming the butter and the sugar in the large mixing bowl of my stand mixer.  Add the oil, eggs, yogurt, and lemon zest and beat well until smooth. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and poppy seeds.  Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and beat well until smooth.  Mix 1 cup of rinsed blueberries with 1 tsp. flour to coat.  Fold blueberries into the batter.The batter was poured into a greased loaf pan and baked until a toothpick inserted in the centre came out clean (between 55-65 minutes).
To make icing, mix 2 Tbsp. With about 1/2 of powedered sugar.  You may need to add more sugar or for juice depending how how thick you like your icing.
Pour the icing over the warm loaf once removed from the oven.  Let cool, then slice and enjoy!
