Lemon Blueberry Loaf

Updated: Jun 23, 2020

Here in the valley, where we live there are a ton of grapevines, orange trees, almond trees, and blueberries. My dads clients tend to bring an abundance of fruits to bring home and its different depending on the season! Well, this time we received a large bucket of blueberries. There's nothing better than a sweet, tart, bread with pops of blueberries and sugar icing to top it off! Here is my recipe. I hope you enjoy!


Lemon Blueberry Loaf


Dry Ingredients


  • 2 cups all purpose flour plus 1 tablespoon to coat blueberries

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp Kosher salt


Wet Ingredients

  • 3 eggs

  • 2 lemons zested

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 ½ cup of granulated sugar

  • 1 cup blueberries



Glaze ingredients

  • ¾ cup confectioners powdered sugar

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice


Directions


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Grease your loaf pan to prevent it from sticking.

  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside

  4. Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment, beat the room temperature butter, sugar, eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice.

  5. Start pouring the in the flour mixture and milk in batches until all combined.

  6. In a little separate bowl, toss the blueberries with the tablespoon of flour to coat. This is so the blueberries don’t sink to the bottom. * feel free to add ½ cup more blueberries if you would prefer more blueberries.

  7. Fold in the blueberries into the batter and pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.

  8. Bake for about 60-65 minute. Insert a toothpick in the center, if it comes out clean, it is done.

  9. Let the loaf sit for about 30 minutes and drizzle on the glaze while it's warm.


Glaze directions

In a small bowl, stir together the lemon juice and confectioners sugar until slightly thick and smooth.

Note: If the glaze is too thick, add a little bit more lemon juice to thin it out for your liking.
