HOW TO MAKE LEMON BLUEBERRY BREAD
Making sweet breads is generally easy to do. This is a one bowl recipe and I love not having to dirty up a ton of dishes when I make dessert!
- Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
- Prepare a loaf pan by spraying it with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar together. Then mix in the eggs and the lemon zest.
- Now fold in the flour and ground almonds.
- Stir in the lemon juice and the blueberries.
- Pour the mixture into your prepared loaf pan.
- Add a sprinkling of blueberries over the top of the batter, if desired.
- Bake for one hour or until it is done in the center. You can check for doneness with a toothpick.
- While the lemon blueberry bread is baking you can make a glaze. This is optional, but so good! Just combine the extra lemon juice and powdered sugar and mix well. You want the glaze to be fairly thin and it is fine to add more lemon juice until you get the consistency you want.
- The glaze can be poured over the top of the loaf while it is in the pan or you can wait and pour over the bread after it is sliced.
