Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance vegan butter or butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup lactose-free milk with 1 tablespoon vinegar or buttermilk
  • 1 1/4 cup blueberry mixture rinse blueberries and while still wet, mix with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Ingredients for Old-Fashioned Creme Glaze

  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1-3 tablespoons of lactose-free milk or lactose-free cream depending on thickness of glaze wanted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a 9x5-inch loaf pan sprayed with non-stick spray or line pan foil and spray so it’s easy to remove for slicing.
  2. Create lactose-free buttermilk by stirring 1 tablespoon of vinegar into ½ cup lactose-free milk and let sit for 20 min.
  3. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. In another medium-sized bowl, beat white sugar and vegan butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
  5. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended; add in vanilla extract.
  6. Combine & whisk flour and baking powder together in another bowl then add into creamed vegan butter mixture and stir until blended.
  7. Mix lactose-free buttermilk into batter until smooth.
  8. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the blueberry mixture and then half the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top.
  9. Pour the remaining cake loaf batter over blueberry layer and top with remaining blueberries and brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top.
  10. Lightly pat blueberry mixture into batter; very lightly swirl brown sugar mixture through blueberries using knife or spoon but don't touch bottom of pan.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 50-60 minutes.
  12. To make glaze, mix powdered sugar and lactose-free milk or lactose-free cream together until well mixed.
  13. Let cool for about 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze.
