Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups whole grain flour I used Spelt ***
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin coconut oil melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon zest
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup blueberries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F (176C). Grease and flour an 8x4x2 loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together eggs, yogurt, oil, syrup, vanilla extract, and juice and zest. Stir in the dry ingredients and whisk until mixed through.
  • Gently fold blueberries into batter.
  • Pour the batter into the greased and floured loaf pan. Bake 50 minutes or until a toothpick poked into the center comes out clean.

Notes

As a measure I used US cup (240ml). Store the leftover cake at room temperature for 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
***To get the best moist and tender cake, use flour combo: 1 cup whole grain Spelt flour + 3/4 cup white Spelt flour.
