Blueberry Lemon Zucchini Cake

Blueberries and lemons are a match made in heaven. The grated zucchini and Greek yogurt make this bread taste more like a decadent cake. Do not skip the glaze. It is full of lemony flavor that really brings the entire dessert/coffee cake/zucchini bread together.

Ingredients


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch salt

1 lemon, zest and juice
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cup grated zucchini (about 2 small)
1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (1 single serving cup)
1 cup fresh blueberries

glaze
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray a deep pie dish with cooking spray. *You can also use a loaf pan if you prefer.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside
  4. Whisk together the wet ingredients: lemon zest and juice, oil, coconut sugar, egg, and Greek yogurt. Stir in zucchini last.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until almost combined.
  6. Fold in the blueberries. Be careful not to overmix the batter. An overmixed batter makes for a tough bread.
  7. Pour into the prepared baking dish and smooth out the top.
  8. Bake for 40 minutes. The top should be golden brown and a toothpick will come out clean. Drizzle on the glaze while the cake is still warm.

Chickpea & Freekeh Salad

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week. I thought I’d put a spotlight on lunch this week. My lunch usually consists of either a smoothie or yogurt with fruit and nuts. Simple, healthy, straightforward, delicious….but a tad boring. So, I have been thinking of different ways to shake up my lunchtime routine.
