Lemon Blueberry Bread/Muffins

With spring finally starting to show up in the Northeast, we can't help but start to gear our recipes towards more summery and bright flavors.  Today we are sharing a favorite blueberry bread recipe that is delicious and great for breakfast or as a snack during the day.  You can make this recipe in a loaf pan, but we recently made it as muffins and we really like having them all portioned out and easy to take on the go.

  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (we like using whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Butter an 8x4 inch loaf pan, line the bottom and two sides of the pan with the parchment paper, as shown in the photo.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter, 1 cup sugar, lemon juice and eggs.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; stir into egg mixture alternately with milk.
  5. In the same bowl where you combined flour, add blueberries and toss them in 2 tablespoons of flour. This will help prevent blueberries from sinking.
  6. Fold in lemon zest, and blueberries into the batter. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for about 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool bread in pan for 40 minutes on a wire rack.
