The Best Lemon Blueberry Bread

 

There are many recipes for blueberry bread, and I’ve certainly tried my share of them; however, when I tweaked an old recipe and came up with this wonderful blend of blueberries and lemon, I knew I’d never need another blueberry bread recipe. The crumb is light and tender, with just a hint of sweetness, and the plump berries and lemony glaze are extraordinary. Try this. You won’t be disappointed. I promise!

Ingredients:

5 tbsp butter, melted, plus a little to grease the pan
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 1/2 cups + 2 tbsp flour
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 lemons, zested and juiced (about 3 tbsp of each)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 cup milk
Glaze:
1 or 2 lemons, juiced (2 tablespoons of juice)
1/4 powered sugar

Instructions:

    Preheat oven to 350˚ F. Butter a 4" x 8" x 2" loaf pan.
  1. Place blueberries in a small bowl and sprinkle with 2 Tbsp of flour. Toss to coat the blueberries, then set aside.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugar, eggs, lemon zest and juice together. In a separate bowl, sift together the baking powder, 1 tsp salt and 1-1/2 cups of flour.
  3. Alternate adding the flour mixture and 1/2 cup milk to the butter mixture, starting and ending with the flour.
  4. Fold in the flour coated blueberries. Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake about 1 hour and 10 minutes, in the center of preheated oven, until a wood toothpick comes out clean. Ovens vary, so be sure to check early to make sure the bread doesn't overcook. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Run knife around edges and turn bread out onto rack.
  5. For the Glaze:
    Combine 2 tablespoons lemon juice with the powdered sugar until smooth. Place a piece of aluminum foil under the baking rack and drizzle the glaze over the warm blueberry bread. Serve warm or at room temperature

                         How to Make the Best Lemon Blueberry Bread

 

It might seem like you need a lot of ingredients or that there are too many steps involved in the process of making this quick bread, but it’s really not as bad as it might appear. Most of the items you need are staples that you probably already have in your pantry; and putting the bread together is fast and easy.

It’s a typical quick bread that relies on baking powder to give it a nice rise. Additionally, the lemon glaze is nothing more than freshly squeezed lemon juice and some confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar). Please don’t skimp on juicing your own lemons. There’s nothing that compares with the bright taste of freshly squeezed juice. It’s worth it – trust me on this!
