The Best Lemon Blueberry Bread

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 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
