Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Loaf

For the Loaf:
1 1/2 cups + 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (approximately 2 lemons)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen, thawed and rinsed

For the Lemon Syrup:
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar

For the Lemon Glaze:
1 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour the bottom and sides of one 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.

In a medium bowl, sift together the 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, sugar, eggs, lemon zest, vanilla and oil. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix the blueberries with the remaining tablespoon of flour, and fold them very gently into the batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool in the pans for 10 minutes before transferring the loaf to a wire rack on top of a baking sheet.

While the loaf is cooling, make the lemon syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir together the lemon juice and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved. Once dissolved, continue to cook for 3 more minutes. Remove from the heat; set aside.

Use a toothpick to poke holes in the tops and sides of the warm loaf. Brush the top and sides of the loaf with the lemon syrup. Let the syrup soak into the cake and brush again. Let the cake cool completely.

To make the lemon glaze, in a small bowl, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar and 2-3 tablespoons of the lemon juice. The mixture should be thick but pourable. Add up to another tablespoon of lemon juice if the mixture is too stiff. Pour the lemon glaze over the top of each loaf and let it drip down the sides. Let the lemon glaze harden, about 15 minutes, before serving.

Peach Raspberry And Blueberry Cobbler

Peach Berry Cobbler


for the peach mixture:
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons + 1/4 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
3 cups fresh or frozen peaches, chopped
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1 heaping cup fresh or frozen raspberries
Cinnamon biscuit topping:
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup plain cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold butter (frozen is best)
1/4 cup + 1 1/2 tablespoons cold cream
cinnamon sugar for sprinkling on top


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

For the fruit mixture: combine the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, lemon juice, vanilla, and almond extract in a small bowl. Mix well. Place the peaches and blueberries in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add the cornstarch mixture and toss to coat. Add the raspberries and gently stir to combine.

Divide the fruit mixture among four 8 ounce individual dessert serving dishes that are oven safe. Place dishes on top of a baking sheet and transfer into the oven. Bake for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the first seven ingredients for the cinnamon biscuits (flour through salt) in a medium sized mixing bowl, mix well. Using the largest whole on a box cheese grater, grate the cold or frozen butter. Add the butter to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Stir in the cream until the mixture just comes together.

Then, turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead just until it comes together. Roll to a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut biscuits using either a 2 or 3 inch biscuit cutter. If you want two smaller biscuits per cobbler, then use the 2 inch biscuit. If you want one biscuit per cobbler, use the 3 inch biscuit.

After the fruit has baked for 10 minutes, remove from the oven and top with biscuits (2 small biscuits per cobbler or 1 larger biscuit each). Then, if desired, sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar.

Return to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Biscuits should be golden and the fruit mixture bubbling. Cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
