My family has a lemon addiction. Given the choice, we will always choose a lemon dessert over chocolate. One family member in particular was making me feel extremely guilty for not having made anything lemony for quite a while. That disgruntled family member would be quite happy if I gave her a spoon and a jar of homemade lemon curd. I chose instead to make this wonderful lemon loaf cake with a sauce of wild blueberries and dried tart cherries, and topped the two off with homemade lemon-poppy seed ice cream.
If you don't have enough time to make all three, make either the lemon loaf cake that bakes up with a beautiful, delicate crumb, and is delicious toasted for breakfast... or the lemon-poppy seed ice cream which I predict after tasting, you will make often.
I could also see the blueberry sauce drizzled over a stack of lemon-cornmeal pancakes... Yum

The lemon-poppyseed ice cream is creamy and lemony. You would not want it any sweeter than it is. Leave out the poppy seeds and you have a wonderful, basic lemon custard ice cream.
