Blueberry Lemon Bread

I’m having a hard time starting this post…

Hubby is sitting next to me moaning between bites…

“This bread is killer…this bread is evil…I could eat the whole thing right now…this is the best thing you’ve ever made”

See what I mean? He’s so distracting sometimes!

Truth is – this bread IS killer and it is one of the best recipes I have!

It’s a light lemony bread bursting with blueberries, touched with a tart sugary lemon glaze.

You start out with a basic cake bread recipe that is laced with lemon zest…

Toss the blueberries with a bit of flour so they don’t sink in the batter.

Gently fold in the blueberries into the batter…

Spread into a loaf pan and bake for an hour.

Remove from the oven and while still warm, poke holes in the loaf and pour the lemony sugar glaze all over it!

Let cool…


You seriously cannot have just one piece…seriously!

Make it – make it for your family, make it for your friends, make it for your office, make it for your neighbors…

Just make it!

    It looks amazing and I can understand why your husband was moaning. I recently made a similar cake with lemon and blueberry and Mr. Hungry Couple was going on and on about it!

    A question- what does butter, flour and sugar a loaf pan mean? I’ve seen buttering and flouring, or buttering and sugaring, but not both at once. Can you explain how to do this? Thanks!

    This is the best lemon bread recipe I have tried so far! We are trying it (again :)) today with coconut oil instead of butter. Kudos to a version that is soft and moist without being mushy, and sweet but not over kill!

      So glad you like it! I will have to try coconut oil since I’ve become a bug fan of coconut oil!
