Blueberry & Lemon Loaf

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

Nature has a clever way of ensuring that many fresh fruits & vegetables that come into season at the same time, complement each other so well! Think cauliflower & pomegranate, radicchio lettuce & oranges, rocket & basil… and of course fresh blueberries & lemon!  This simple gluten free loaf makes a delicious breakfast loaf, or healthy snack, and can be made vegan by substituting eggs for flax ‘eggs’ or additional bicarb & apple cider vinegar – we will try this soon!
