Lemon Blueberry Bread

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!

Blueberry Bread

Lemon Blueberry Bread

1/3 c melted butter
3/4 c sugar
3 T lemon juice
2 eggs
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

How To:
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.
