Try this incredible recipe for Gluten Free Vegan Mini Lemon Blueberry Cakes from Sarah Bakes Gluten Free Treats. They’re totally delicious and full of real berry and lemon flavor. Since they’re both gluten free and vegan, this is one spring treat that everyone can enjoy!
If fresh blueberries are in season, I typically will use those. If you do choose to use frozen blueberries, the results are equally delicious. You’ll just need to adjust the cooking time slightly (an extra 4-5 minutes is all it should take). Once your loaves have cooled, be sure to drizzle a liberal amount of the delicious dairy free lemon glaze on top. It’s made with coconut milk coffee creamer and it has just the right mix of sweetness and tang.
These adorable Gluten Free Vegan Mini Lemon Blueberry Cakes won’t last long, so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy! They’re the perfect spring breakfast!
