This is the end product. (Don't you always like to see what you're making before you see the process? I do!) :)
Here's the cast of characters:
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 tbs lemon juice
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups AP flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tbs grated lemon zest (I just used the zest from 1 large lemon)
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (I vote for fresh!)
Ingredients for the Glaze
- 2 tbs lemon juice
- 1/4 cup sugar
Step 1: Mix together butter, sugar, lemon juice, and eggs.
Step 2: Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Step 3: Combine your wets into your dry ingredients. Alternate milk and egg mixture until all wets are mixed in.
Step 4: Fold in the lemon zest and blueberries.
Step 5: Pour this fine looking batter (pictured below) into a greased and floured loaf pan (8x4)
Step 6: Bake it in a 350 oven for 60-70 minutes (until a toothpick comes out clean)
Step 7: After taking it out, wait 10 minutes and then remove the bread to cool on a wire rack.
Step 8: Once the bread has cooled a bit, make your glaze by mixing the 2tbs lemon juice and 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Drizzle over the bread and then enjoy!
It was a hit at our house, and I'm sure it will be at your home too!
