recipe: vegan blueberry lemon loaf

Each time I make a new loaf, I swear that it’s the best one yet. This, you guys, IS the best one yet! It didn’t rise as high as regular loaves (I think due to it being vegan), but it was so incredibly sweet and satisfying. No one would ever guess that it was a healthy treat!

I’ll be making this loaf again and again, with no complaints from anyone. Try it out this Christmas season!

Vegan Blueberry Lemon Loaf

Ingredients:

(For the loaf)
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
⅔ cup almond milk, unsweetened
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp lemon zest, grated
¼ cup canola oil
2 tbsp applesauce
⅔ cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries
dairy-free butter, to grease

(For the vanilla frosting)
1 ¼ cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp dairy-free butter
2 tbsp almond milk, unsweetened
¾ tsp vanilla extract

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a loaf pan with butter. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together.

3. In a large bowl, combine almond milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, and oil. Stir in applesauce, brown sugar, and vanilla extract.

4. Fold dry ingredients into large bowl. Mix until just combined. Gently stir in blueberries.

5. Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan. Put in oven for approximately 1 hour. Remove and let cool for 1 hour.

6. Put all four ingredients for frosting into a bowl. Mix with electric mixture on low, gradually increasing the speed until it thickens.

7. Spread onto loaf. Gently slice, and it’s ready to be eaten!
