Lemon Blueberry Poppy Seed Loaf


This lemon blueberry poppy seed loaf I’m going to show you is very tasty and absolutely bursting with sweet blueberry and tart lemon flavour. Who doesn’t love that delicious contrast?

I love everything about berry season! I try to take advantage of the cheap and abundant berries while they are readily available at local farmers’ markets. Did you know that here in B.C, we have the largest highbush blueberry growing region in the world!?! If you’re like me and love berries, making yummy loaves and muffins is a great way to utilize them.

Lemon Blueberry Poppy Seed Loaf

My dad loves loaves and muffins, so I am always making a treat of some kind for him (to maintain my “best daughter ever” status obviously!) When I make a loaf I typically make a second one to either give away or you know…have extra just in case I’m REALLY hungry! One time, I took the second lemon blueberry poppy seed loaf to a friend’s house for a Bachelorette viewing night. It was gone immediately. BTW…it pairs very well with any wine. I mean, I think it would! ????

Blueberries are a fantastic addition to any baked goods or dessert, but blueberries on their own these berries are equally as tasteful and have high nutritional value. Did you know that a 1/2 cup of blueberries contains only 44 calories and 10% of your daily recommended vitamin C intake!?! Blueberries also rank number 1 for the highest antioxidants compared to 40 other fresh fruits and vegetables. It makes sense that people have been consuming them for over 13,000 years!
