Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 1 loaf


  • 2 & 1/4 cups + 1 tablespoon cake & pastry flour, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest, about 2 medium lemons
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 & 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (do NOT defrost if using frozen)


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan, and set aside.
    * You can make this quick bread in an 8x4 inch pan, but it will take slightly longer to bake.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine 2 & 1/4 cups flour, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt. Whisk, and set aside to prep the wet ingredients.
  • In a large bowl, pour in your milk, Greek yogurt or sour cream, sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, lemon zest and juice, and vanilla. Whisk to combine.
  • Combine your wet and dry ingredients. Fold together until you no longer see any dry clumps of flour. Take care not to over mix!
  • In a medium bowl, combine blueberries and remaining 1 tablespoon of flour. Toss together until the blueberries are all coated in four. Fold the blueberries into your quick bread batter.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake in the center of your preheated 350°F oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If you notice the loaf browning too quickly, loosely tent some aluminum foil over the top and continue baking until cooked through.
  • Cool for about 15 minutes in your pan, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool enough to handle, or completely to room temperature. Serve warm or room temperature.
