Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free sour cream
  • 1 cup blueberries, you can use frozen but defrost them

For the Icing:

  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind, , grate the rind off the lemon before squeezing - it is just easier

Instructions

  • Prepare your egg replacer and set aside. That is by mixing one tablespoon of flaxseed meal and three tablespoons water.
  • Lightly oil a loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix the flour, organic sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together.
  • Add the prepared flaxseed egg, melted butter, and sour cream and mix until just combined.
  • Gently fold in the blueberries.
  • Pour into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake at 375° for 30 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let it sit for about 15 minutes.
  • Remove the cake from the pan and place on a rack and let it cool.
  • Meanwhile make the glaze:
  • In a medium bowl add the sugar, lemon juice and lemon rind. Mix well.
  • Set the rack and cake over a cookie sheet to catch the extra glaze.
  • Pour the glaze over the top of the cake.
  • Let everything stand until the glaze is a bit hardened.

Notes

IF FREEZING:
After the cake has cooled (or if you need to freeze any of the leftovers) you may freeze them in any of the methods shown in my article  How to Prepare Food for the Freezer.
It will also keep in the refrigerator for about 4 days.
It defrosts quickly so it really doesn't take any planning. Just put in the refrigerator a few hours before serving.
