  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease and line the base and sides of a 10cm x 24cm loaf pan. Combine the blueberries, sugar and 2 tbs water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until the blueberries collapse and the mixture thickens slightly. Set aside to cool completely.
  2. Step 2

    Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and extra sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the sour cream and stir to combine. Add the combined flour, lime rind and lime juice, in batches, stirring after each addition until just combined. Add the extra blueberries and stir to combine. Add half the blueberry mixture and gently fold to marble. Spoon half the mixture into the prepared pan and drizzle with the remaining blueberry mixture. Top with the remaining cake mixture and smooth the surface.
  3. Step 3

    Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Step 4

    Combine the icing sugar and extra lime juice in a medium bowl. Stir in enough water to make a runny paste. Drizzle over the cake and set aside to set.
