Blueberry Lemon Bread August 8, 2012

Blueberry Lemon Bread

This is one of my most requested items.  I often make it for brunch or work meetings.  It is sweet, but not too sweet, great with coffee!  The lemon flavour is not overpowering, but adds a little depth to a simple recipe.  The blueberries can be substituted with fresh cranberries.  I like to make it as a bread, but it works great as muffins, too.  For those of you with a sweet tooth, add a lemon zest glaze or turbinado sugar on top.

Blueberry Lemon Bread

3 tablespoons softened butter

1 cup of sugar

1 egg

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup milk

zest of one lemon

2 cups of blueberries

Beat butter and sugar in a mixer for about two minutes.

Sift flour, salt, and baking powder together.

Add egg to butter.

Alternately add flour mixture and milk to the butter mixture.

Add lemon zest.

Fold in blueberries.

Grease and line a loaf pan with parchment.  Bake at 350 for about 60 min., or until a toothpick comes out clean.
