Why Homemade is Better?

Unlike store-bought desserts that may contain excessive sugars and unhealthy fats, our Lemon Blueberry Loaf lets you choose healthier ingredients. You can tailor it to meet specific dietary requirements or taste preferences. For a lower-sugar option, consider using natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup, and whole wheat flour as a healthier alternative.

Frequently Asked Questions

Expand All:
Can I use frozen blueberries instead of fresh ones?

Yes, you can substitute frozen blueberries for fresh ones in this recipe. However, keep in mind that frozen blueberries may release more moisture into the batter, potentially affecting the baking time. To prevent the loaf from becoming too moist, you can toss the frozen blueberries in a little flour before folding them into the batter.

Is there a suitable alternative to Greek yogurt?

If you don't have Greek yogurt on hand, you can use regular plain yogurt as a substitute. While Greek yogurt provides a thicker texture, plain yogurt will still work well in this recipe.

Coconut yoghurt is also a great alternative, especially if you are lactose intolerant or have dairy-free dietary requirements.

How should I store the Lemon Blueberry Loaf to keep it fresh?

To keep your Lemon Blueberry Loaf fresh, store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2-3 days if you have not spread the yoghurt on top of it yet. For longer storage, or if you have topped it with the yoghurt, you can refrigerate it for up to a week. If you prefer to freeze it, wrap the loaf tightly in plastic wrap and aluminium foil, and it should stay good for about three months in the freezer. Thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
