Blueberry Lemon Quick Bread

Serves 8-10


1/4 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
Zest of one lemon, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon citric acid, optional
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons Rumford Baking Powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups blueberries, semi-frozen
Sugar for dusting


Preheat oven to 350 F. Generously spray a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

In a mixer bowl, cream the butter, sugar and lemon zest until you have a fluffy, well-blended mixture. Blend in the citric acid, egg, vanilla, sour cream and whipping cream. Fold in the flour, Rumford Baking Powder, baking soda and salt and blend to make a smooth batter. Fold in the blueberries, gently, by hand.

Spoon the batter in the pan and dust with sugar.

Bake until cake is gently browned around the edges, 75-90 minutes.


Summer berries update the classic lemon loaf. This is richer than a quick bread; rather like a muffin in a lofty loaf.
