Ingredients

Instructions

  • Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. Then spray the inside of a 9x5-inch loaf pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, melted butter, sour cream, lemon zest, and vanilla extract.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. The batter may be slightly lumpy. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it in an even layer.
  • Bake for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. (If needed, cover the bread with foil to prevent overbrowning.) Allow the bread to cool completely before slicing.

Notes

I like to serve this Lemon and Blueberry Bread with a little salted butter. However, if you want to highlight the lemon flavor and make the bread even more decadent, you can whip up a glaze of confectioners' sugar and lemon juice to drizzle on the top. Simply add fresh lemon juice (You don't need much.) to a cup of confectioners' sugar until you achieve the desired drizzling consistency.
