  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup non-dairy yogurt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 ½ Tablespoons lemon juice
  • zest of one lemon
  • ¾ cup blueberries
  • 1-2 Tablespoons all purpose flour


  • Preheat your oven to 365° F
  • Add the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda) into a large mixing bowl and whisk together.
  • In a separate bowl, add the wet ingredients (milk, yogurt, vanilla, applesauce, lemon juice, and lemon zest), and combine well.
  • Slowly add the dry mixture into the wet and mix well as you go.
  • In a small bowl, toss the blueberries with 1-2 Tablespoons of flour, ensuring to coat them completely.
  • Add the blueberries gently into the batter and fold in. You can leave some blueberries out to place on top once in the baking pan if desired.
  • Using a lightly greased loaf pan, pour in the batter and place extra blueberries gently on top.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes and check with a toothpick to ensure it comes out clean.
  • Let cool for about 10 minutes and then gently remove to a cooling rack.
  • Slice when cooled and serve.


Can I use gluten free flour?
Can I substitute dairy for non dairy milk and yogurt?
Yes, this was made with both non dairy yogurt (cashew) and
non dairy milk (cashew).
Can I add other fruits?
Of course, have fun with it. 
Strawberries, raspberries both work well, but blueberries and lemon just
seem to click!
