#SundaySupper this week has an open theme. I’m bringing a simple loaf cake that is the perfect accompaniment with that cuppa right after dinner.
I chanced upon this can of wild blueberries in syrup last week and I knew I could put these to good use. Since they weren’t enough for an entire cake, I went ahead and made us a loaf. The recipe is from The Junior League of Boca Raton’s Savor the Moment and needs no tinkering with. You could try and do a healthy version by cutting down the butter by a fourth and using Splenda instead of sugar. Remember not to use Splenda for the glaze, for that you will have to use sugar in the raw.
Over to the recipe: With a touch of lime, just enough berries and a hint of sweetness – this loaf cake would make for a perfect breakfast or delicious dessert.
- 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- 1½ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- grated zest of 1 lime
- ½ cup fresh blueberries
- juice of 1 lime
- ½ cup sugar
- Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 4 by 6 inch loaf pan.
- In a medium bowl sift the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream the butter and 1 cup sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy.
- Beat in the eggs. Add the milk and mix well.
- Add the flour mixture and beat until smooth.
- Stir in lime zest and blueberries.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a tester comes out clean
- For the glaze: Mix the lime juice and ½ cup sugar in a bowl until the sugar dissolves. Drizzle over the bread after removing from the pan.

Mmm… I love baking with a bit of tang. Usually I get that from lemon, haven’t tried lime!
How delicious and delicate looking. Yum!
Seriously, my mouth was watering when I was reading the ingredients to this bread. What a nice combination with the blueberries and the lime in the glaze. I would have a problem stopping at just one serving.
This bread looks lovely – the slight glaze makes it not overwhelmingly sweet while the bread looks beautifully soft and dense – love the use of lime over lemons too :)

For the glaze do you use granulated sugar or confectioner’s sugar?
