Prep: 1 hour (including cooking) Cook: 45 minutes


For the blueberry loaf

  • 300g gluten free flour
  • 250 g dairy free margarine
  • 30 g sweetener
  • 150 g frozen blueberries
  • 4 chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 100 ml orange juice
  • 4 eggs



  1. Preheat the oven to 165 C. Grease and line a 900 g (2 lb.) loaf tin.
  2. Beat the flour, margarine, sweetener & eggs until white and fluffy.
  3. Gently fold in blueberries and orange juice until fully incorporated / mixed.
  4. Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the top.
  5. Bake for about 45 min or until risen, brown and firm to the touch. If the loaf looks as though it is browning too much after about 30 min, place a piece of foil sheet or tin foil loosely over the top. Continue cooking until golden brown or a knife comes clean from the centre.
  6. Leave the loaf to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then turn it out onto a wire rack.
