Ingredients

Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons melted vegan butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a standard metal loaf pan (9x5 inches or 8 1/2x 4 1/2). You can also line the pan with parchment paper for easy removal, but I like the golden edges it gets without lining it.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the soy milk, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, lemon extract (if using), melted vegan butter and vanilla until well combined.
  • To the bowl with the wet ingredients, add the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir until just combined, being careful not to over mix or your bread will be dense.
  • Rinse the blueberries, then toss them with the flour in a small bowl. This will help them not sink to the bottom of the pan while baking.
  • Fold the blueberries into the batter, gently.
  • Pour into the prepared pan, place in the center rack of the oven and bake for 60-75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean with no wet batter.
  • Cool in the pan for about 30 minutes, then carefully remove from the pan and transfer to a cooling rack with parchment paper below (to catch the glaze drippings).
  • Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the melted vegan butter, powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla until smooth. Pour over the loaf and allow to set for 20-30 minutes if possible. Slice and serve.

Notes

 
  1. I haven’t tested this with gluten free flour, so I’m not sure if it will work or not. Use a quality gluten free all purpose mix for best results.
  2. You could go down to probably ½ cup sugar for a less sweet bread.
  3. You can use any non-dairy milk you like place of the soy milk.
  4. This would also work well with raspberries or even chopped strawberries.
