Some lovin’ from the oven! This is a great treat for adults and kids alike. I would love to swap out the sugar for a healthier option. If I succeed, I promise to share!
Lemon Blueberry Bread
1/3 c melted butter
3/4 c sugar
3 T lemon juice
1-1/2 c all-purpose flour
1 t baking powder
1 t salt
1/2 c milk
1-2 T grated lemon zest (2 tablespoons makes this very lemony – beware!)
1 c fresh or frozen blueberries
GLAZE (optional – we skip this)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter melted
1 cup confectioners sugar
In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, lemon juice and eggs. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into egg mixture. Add milk. Mix well. Fold in the blueberries and lemon zest.
Transfer to a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pan.
If adding glaze: Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm bread.
Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
