Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Cake

Recipe inspiration http://www.glorioustreats.com/2016/03/lemon-blueberry-bread.html

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups bob’s red mill gluten free baking flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons fresh grated lemon zest
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (I used frozen)
  • 1 Tablespoons gf all-purpose flour
Lemon glaze (I didn’t make this)
  • 2 Tablespons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1.  Preheat oven to 350*F and line a 9″x 5″ loaf pan with parchment paper (or lightly grease with butter).
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt, and set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, blend together the melted oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla, lemon zest and lemon juice.  Mix until well combined.
  4. While slowly mixing, add flour mixture and almond milk in two batches (some flour, then some milk, then the rest of the flour and the rest of the milk).  Stop mixing as soon as it’s just combined.
  5. Rinse off the blueberries (if using fresh) so they have just a bit of moisture on them, then, in a small bowl toss the blueberries and 1 T. flour.  This flour coating will help prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of your loaf while baking.
  6. Add the flour coated berries to the batter and gently but quickly stir, by hand, to combine.
  7. Immediately pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.  Cool bread in the pan for about 30 minutes, then move to a wire cooling rack with a baking sheet below (to catch the glaze you’re about to add).
  8. Prepare glaze by simply whisking together the melted butter, powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla, then pour glaze over the loaf.  Allow to set a few minutes, then enjoy!

Saladmaster baking conversion: Pour batter in a coconut oil greased pan of choice (I used 12″ skillet, could also use 11″ large skillet or Electric Skillet). Cover and cook on med-low until it looks dry on top and there’s little to no jiggle to the batter. It took me about 15-20 min. Remove from heat and let cool in pan before taking out.
