Ingredients

  • 125 grams butter softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 220 grams caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 225 grams plain flour + 1 extra tbsp to coat the blueberries
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 125 grams milk
  • 1 tbsp finely grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 cup blueberries fresh or frozen

For the Icing

  • 1 1/4 cups icing sugar mixture
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp coconut to decorate optional

Instructions

  • Line a large loaf tin with baking paper and preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius.
  • Place the softened butter into your Thermomix bowl and mix 30 seconds on speed 3 until it is pale and creamy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract and and mix for 30 seconds on speed 5
  • Add the remainder of your ingredients (except the blueberries) and mix for 10 seconds on speed 4 or until your mixture is smooth and well combined. Mix for a further 5 - 10 seconds on speed 4 if necessary.
  • Place the blueberries into a small bowl and sprinkle the extra flour over the top of them. Lightly toss until they are coated in the flour. 
  • Add the blueberries and use your spatula to gently fold them through the mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into your prepared cake tin and place into the oven to bake for 50 minutes or until the cake is cooked through when tested with a skewer.
  • Carefully remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the tin for 10 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once cool, prepare the lemon icing by sifting the icing sugar into a bowl and adding the lemon juice. Mix until it reaches a smooth and soft consistency. If your icing is a little too ‘thick’ add ½ tsp of hot water until it’s the right consistency to spread over your loaf.
  • Use a spatula or a butter knife to then spread the icing over the cake and set aside for 10 minutes to allow the icing to set.

Notes

  • You loaf mixture won’t be completely smooth due to the lemon rind pieces.
  • It’s important to make sure your butter is at room temperature before using.
