This is a perfect breakfast treat or dessert, as it’s sweet, but not overwhelming.

I find that many muffins or muffin-like cakes taste too sugary, but this isn’t the case. The tanginess of the lemon cancels out a lot of the sweetness.

Given that blueberry picking season just ended, this is the perfect treat to utilize your fresh, juicy berries.

This lemon blueberry muffin cake contains simple ingredients, such as:

all-purpose and whole wheat flour, cane sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon for the dry ingredients.

non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar, melted coconut oil, flax egg, lemon zest, and blueberries for the wet ingredients.

To make this muffin cake, start off by preparing the flax egg and vegan “buttermilk.” Combine flaxseed meal and water and set aside for 5 minutes. To a liquid measuring cup, add non-dairy milk and apple cider vinegar. Let sit for 5 minutes.

To a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flax egg, milk mixture, melted coconut oil, cane sugar, and lemon zest. Add flours, baking powder, salt, and spices. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to combine until a thick batter forms. Carefully fold in blueberries.

Pour and spread batter into a parchment-lined loaf tin. Bake for 50-55 minutes at 350f until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

    This cake is delicious! My toddler loves it and so does the rest of the family. Next time I will cut back on the oil a bit to make it less moist but no complaints here! This will be on rotation. Thank you!
