Lemon Blueberry Bread

Friday, March 10, 2017

I got a bite from the baking bug this morning, so I decided to try something new and made this blueberry lemon bread for the weekend. It was so easy to make, and absolutely tastes good enough to have for breakfast or dessert. It's a perfect fruity, spring treat!

Lemon Blueberry Bread


~1 & 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
~1 teaspoon of baking powder
~1 teaspoon of salt
~1/3 cup of unsalted butter (melted)
~1 cup of sugar
~2 eggs
~1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
~2 teaspoons fresh grated lemon zest
~2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
~1/2 cup of milk
~1 cup frozen blueberries


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees & lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, & salt. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, blend melted butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, lemon zest, & lemon juice. Mix until combined.
4. While the mixer is on low, add half of the flour mixture, then half of the milk, then the other half of the flour, then the last half of the milk. Stop mixing as soon as everything is well combined.
5. Rinse off blueberries, then put in a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of flour to coat the berries. This will prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the loaf during baking.
6. Add berries to the batter and stir in gently by hand.
7. Immediately pour batter in the loaf pan and bake for 55-65 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. 
8. Cool the bread for about 30 minutes or so before removing from the pan.

To make the bread even more delicious, I added a lemon glaze! Yum! Here are the directions for that:

Lemon Glaze

~2 tablespoons of butter, melted
~1/2 cup of powdered sugar
~2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
~1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract


1. Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl.
2. Pour over cooled off bread while it is sitting on a cooling rack with wax paper underneath. This will make for easy clean up! I also sprinkled extra powdered sugar on top just for fun. :)

That's it! Easy peasy! My best girl and I had so much fun making ours today, and even more fun eating it! 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Until next time! XoXoXo
