Lemon Glaze for an Extra Touch

While this Blueberry Loaf Cake is delicious on its own, you can take it to the next level with a simple lemon glaze. Dusting it with icing sugar works too if you’re short on time. If you’re in the mood for a tangy twist, here’s what you’ll need for the glaze:

  • Soft icing sugar/powdered sugar
  • Lemon juice
  • Milk (if needed to achieve the right consistency)

Mix the ingredients together, adding milk gradually until you reach the desired thickness. Be careful not to make the glaze too thin! Drizzle the glaze over the cooled Blueberry Loaf Cake for an extra touch of sweetness.
