Lemon Curd and Blueberry Loaf

This has to be my favourite isolation cake to date. Served with a spoon of yoghurt and lemon curd it is heavenly. Recipe from http://www.bbcgoodfood.com

✔️ 175g softened butter, plus extra for greasing⁣
✔️ 500ml Greek yoghurt ⁣
✔️ 300g lemon curd⁣
✔️ 3 eggs⁣
✔️ zest and juice of 1 lemon⁣
✔️ 200g self raising flour ⁣
✔️ 175g caster sugar ⁣
✔️ 200g blueberries ⁣
✔️ 140g icing sugar ⁣
✔️ edible flower to serve ⁣

  1. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Grease a 2lb loaf tin and line with a long strip of baking parchment. Put 100g yogurt, 2 tbsp lemon curd, the softened butter, eggs, lemon zest, flour and caster sugar into a large mixing bowl. Quickly mix with an electric whisk until the batter just comes together. Scrape half into the prepared tin. Weigh 85g blueberries from the punnet and sprinkle half into the tin, scrape the rest of the batter on top, then scatter the other half of the 85g berries on top. Bake for 1 hr 10 mins-1 hr 15 mins until golden, and a skewer poked into the centre comes out clean.
  2. Cool in the tin, then carefully lift onto a serving plate to ice. Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and stir in enough lemon juice to make a thick, smooth icing. Spread over the top of the cake, then decorate with lemon zest and edible flowers, if you like. Serve in slices with extra lemon curd, Greek yogurt and blueberries.
