  • Category: Gluten-free, Breakfast

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cups milk of choice (dairy or non-dairy)
  • ¾ cup cane sugar
  • ¼ cup avocado oil (may substitute melted coconut oil or butter)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3 cups gluten-free flour blend (we use Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 or King Arthur Measure for Measure)*
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons (about 1/4 cup juice and 1 tablespoon zest)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Optional: thin lemon slices for the top of the bread

For the Lemon Glaze:

  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350℉. Line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, oil, vanilla and vinegar.
  3. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; fold together until combined.
  4. Stir in the lemon zest and juice (the batter will foam a little). Then fold in the blueberries.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. If desired, add thin slices of lemon to the top of the batter before baking.
  6. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Let bread cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the glaze:

  1. In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar and lemon juice until a smooth and thin glaze forms. Once the bread has cooled, drizzle the glaze on top of the bread, then slice and serve.

Notes

*If gluten-free is not needed, you can substitute an equal amount of unbleached all-purpose flour for the gluten-free flour
