“The original recipe is inspired by Ina Garten's Lemon Yogurt Loaf. I have made it healthier by using whole wheat pastry flour, or whole wheat flour, cutting back on sugar, and amping up the flavor as well as nutrition quotient by adding a lot of fresh blueberries. This cake is high fiber (due to whole wheat and blueberries) and high protein (due to Greek yogurt). Also, it is high in vitamin C, which cleanses and detoxes your body. It is perfect for summer when blueberries are in season. I've made it eggless for the vegetarians or for those with egg allergies or for those who have simply run out of eggs. In other words, this is a great tasting breakfast cake that is good for you!”
