IMG_0009

Visiting Mama Blue Winery last weekend and having fresh blueberries got me thinking about a quick and easy recipe we love to eat at our house – Blueberry & Yoghurt Loaf. I think you will enjoy this one!

Ingredients:

150g butter, melted
1 cup (220g) caster (superfine) sugar
2 eggs
½ cup (140g) Greek-style (thick) yoghurt
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ cups (225g) self-raising flour, sifted
125g fresh blueberries, plus extra, to serve
icing (confectioner’s) sugar, for dusting

1. Preheat oven to 160°C (325°F).

2.Place the butter, sugar, eggs, yoghurt, lemon zest and vanilla in a bowl and whisk to combine.

3.Add the flour and whisk until well combined. Fold through the blueberries and spoon into a lightly greased 22cm x 8cm x 7cm loaf tin lined with non-stick baking paper.

4. Smooth the top with a palette knife and bake for 1 hour–1 hour 10 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.

5. Allow the loaf to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning it out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with icing sugar and top with extra blueberries to serve. Serves 6–8.

Happy baking xx

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I live in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. I started my cooking blog as a hobby during my 'gap year' - 'lessonstodate' to share my family recipes and some personal accounts that come with being a mum, and grandmother - and corporate worker. My love of taking photos had taken a back-seat but recently after spending time on my own while my husband travelled, I found myself picking up my camera again. It really is good company! Looking out at the world and watching it unfold; you don't have to participate in it, just watch and wonder. Sharon
