Lemon Blueberry Poppy Seed Loaf


I love berry season!  I try to take advantage of the cheap and abundant berries while they are readily available. Making loafs and muffins is a great way to use them. This lemon blueberry poppy seed loaf is very tasty and bursting with sweet blueberry and tart lemon flavour.

Lemon Blueberry Poppy Seed Loaf

My dad loves loafs and muffins, so I am always making some for him (to maintain my “best daughter ever” status). When I make a loaf I usually make a second one for giving away. I took the second lemon blueberry poppy seed loaf to a friends house for Bachelorette viewing night.  BTW…it pairs well with wine.  πŸ™‚

  • Shari Welsh

    Looks great – make it VEGAN- USE ALMOND or SOY or COCONUT or CASHEW MILK- SKIP THE BUTTER USE ANY VEG. OIL or margarine that does not contain PALM OIL- WHICH IS DESTROYING THE FORESTS THAT R THE ONLY HOME OF ORANGUTANS.

  • Shari Welsh

    Looks great , MAKE IT VEGAN- SKIP the EGGS, USE ALMOND, SOY, CASHEW OR COCONUT MILK, SKIP THE BUTTER- USE ANY VEG. OIL, OR MARGARINE- IF U CAN FIND ONE THAT DOES NOT HAVE ANY PALM OIL. USE OF PALM OIL IS CAUSING THE FORESTS OF BORNEO TO BE DESTROYED – THOSE FORESTS R THE ONLY HOME OF ORANGUTANS- PLEASE WATCH ORANGUTAN ISLAND THEY R LOSING ALL THIER FOREST HOMES & R BEING MURDERED, ORPHANED ABUSED, HOMELESS.

  • Fatima Ali
