An all time favourite for me is this blueberry and lemon loaf which is super easy to bake, takes just an hour and is so delicious!
Can we all just agree that no matter how healthy you try to be, sometimes you just need to eat a bit off cake. And more than that, to smell the baked goods wafting from your oven and know that soon you’ll get to enjoy that first piece of warm , buttered , fruit loaf. I’m salivating just thinking about it!
