When Life Gives You Loaf Pans

Months ago, Welcome Home Brands sent me a selection of paper bakeware. Included in the collection was a set of loaf pans. As I had seen a recipe for a lemon-blueberry cake that I was actively salivating over, I knew what to do with the pans.

This turned out to be one of the most delicious baked goods I’ve made. The sweetness of the blueberries and the tart lemon are perfect together.

There is a sugar glaze on top that next time I’d either leave out or make with a finer sugar.

    I will definitely try this soon. Lemon and blueberry are the perfect pair! I make a blueberry-lemon pie that always gets raves. Were there any paper pie pans?

    This looks soooo good and a great way to use some extra blueberries! LOVE blueberry/lemon combo. Now if only I had those “extra” blueberries … they seem to get gobbled up before I can use them!
