Blueberry Loaf Cake (one bowl wonder)

This is a very simple variation of the cranberry and orange cake I posted earlier in the week. I actually made this on the same day but had forgotten to post up the recipe. Here it is, I am pretty sure you will love it and I urge you to try make this one.



2 cups self raising flour

1 cup caster sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 cup frozen cranberries

1/4 cup melted butter

1 egg

2 tablespoons lemon juice

3/4 cup water

6 drops lemon oil flavouring (optional)


1.5 teaspoons butter, melted.

2 tablespoons icing sugar

4 drops lemon flavour (or vanilla)


Preheat the oven to 180C/350F

Mix all the dry ingredients together.

Stir in the blueberries.

Finally mix in the egg and liquids.

Mix well with a spoon and transfer into a lined or greased 2lb loaf tin. I use cake liners for mine.

Bake for 50 – 55 minutes, test for doneness using a cocktail stick.

Allow to cool for 15 minutes in the loaf pan and then transfer onto a wire rack.

Once cool make the frosting by melting the butter then stir in the icing sugar and flavouring.

Spread over the top of the cake and allow to set.
