Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 55 mins
Total time: 1 hr 10 mins
Yield: 8 servings

INGREDIENTS 

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest about 1 lemon
  • 3 large eggs room temp
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup canola oil or vegetable
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice about ½ a lemon
  • 1 cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour + 1 tbsp separated to coat the berries
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 3 tablespoon turbinado sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat your oven to 350℉. Grease and line a standard 9x13 loaf pan with parchment paper, 2 inches hanging off both ends. 
  • In a large bowl, combine the granulated sugar and lemon zest. Using your fingers, gently work together until fragrant.
  • To the lemon sugar, add in the eggs and whisk until smooth and slightly paler in color – about 1 minute.
  • Whisk in the honey, vanilla extract, oil, lemon juice, and Greek yogurt. 
  • Switching to a rubber spatula, gently mix in the 1 ½ cups all purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. 
  • In a separate small bowl, combine the 1 tablespoon flour and blueberries. Gently fold these into the batter. 
  • Pour the batter into the prepped loaf pan and sprinkle evenly with turbinado sugar. 
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes until a knife comes out clean when inserted into the center. 
  • Cool for 15 minutes in the loaf pan, then turn onto a plate or cooling rack. Once just about all the way cooled, top with powdered sugar.
