Method

- Preheat oven to 200°C/390°F (180°C fan forced).

- Line loaf pan: Butter and line a loaf pan with parchment / baking paper. The picture pan is 21 x 11 x 7 cm (8.3 x 4.5 x 2.75") which makes a nice tall loaf.

- Coat blueberries: Toss blueberries in flour (less flour sticks if dry, more if frozen). This helps keep them suspended in the batter.

- Whisk Dry ingredients in a bowl.

- Add Wet ingredinets: Make a well in the Dry ingredients. Add Wet ingredients. Whisk until incorporated.

- Fold in blueberries: Fold in blueberries, including any flour remaining in the blueberry bowl.

- Bake: Pour into the prepared tin. Bake for 50 minutes, then cover with foil. Bake for a further 15 – 25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Check after 15 minutes, then if the skewer comes out with batter on it, bake a further 10 minutes.

- Cool: Rest for 5 minutes then turn onto a cooling rack and completely cool. Drizzle with Glaze. Wait until the glaze sets (about 20 minutes) before slicing to serve.

Glaze

- Whisk icing sugar and lemon until smooth, using milk only if needed to achieve the right thickness (Note 3). Pour or spread over cake set on a rack over a baking tray. Scrape glaze drippings on the tray back onto the cake.
