lemon blueberry cashew bread

July 27, 2012 by Angie

Week 30 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Baking is sweet breads. Do not Google “sweet breads” though. Apparently it is a disgusting animal part “food”. As this is not what I think the creator of the challenge is looking for, I made a bread that tastes sweet.

I baked a lemon blueberry bread with cashew pieces. I pretty closely followed this recipe from EgglessCooking.com (neat site). I veganized it, which wasn’t difficult as there were no eggs to begin with, by substituting soy milk and Earth Balance margarine. I didn’t have soy yogurt or an orange so I doubled the unsweetened apple sauce to replace the yogurt and used a lemon and its zest instead. I also used chopped cashews instead of the suggested chopped pecans since pecans make me die.

It came together pretty easily and tastes wonderful. Only thing I would adjust next time is the sugar. I used a bit less than the full cup of sugar the recipe calls for but next time I’ll use a scant 3/4 cup or maybe even less. The blueberries are so sweet and delicious that I don’t think the batter needs to be crazy sweet.
