  2. You can use soy milk to make it pareve (some of the refrigerated soy milks are dairy but the shelf stable soy milk is pareve).

  3. Is the 1/4 cup sugar that is mixed with lemon juice, regular sugar or confectionare sugar?

    I made this for Shabbat and it was very tasty, however, all the blueberries sank to the bottom of the loaf : ( Next time, I’ll try coating the blueberries with a small amount of flour and hopefully they won’t all sink to the bottom of the loaf pan.

    • As long as you freeze it when it is fully cooled, wrap it well in plastic and defrost it in the fridge and not on the counter, it will be good.
