Lightly oil a 9 x 5” loaf pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.


Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, approximately 5 minutes.


Whisk in the eggs one by one on low speed until well incorporated, then stir in the yogurt.

Fold in the flour, baking powder and salt and mix with a light hand, then gently stir in the lemon juice and zest.


Fold in the lightly floured blueberries then spoon half the batter into the prepared baking pan.


Drop half of the lemon curd in dollops over the batter swirling them lightly into the batter. Scatter half of the blueberries over the batter and spoon the remaining batter into the pan. 


Drop the remaining lemon curd in dollops into the batter and scatter the remaining blueberries over the top, pressing them lightly into the batter.


Bake the cake on rack position 2 counting up from the bottom of the oven for an hour or hour and 10 minutes until the tester comes out clean. Cool the cake for 10 - 15 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
