Lemon Blueberry Bread

Easy Lemon Blueberry Bread. Super moist, tender and loaded with blueberries! Perfect for breakfast or dessert!

I was never a fan of lemon in desserts until recently and now I can’t get enough of them! This lemon and blueberry loaf is loaded with fresh blueberries and is bursting with tons of lemon flavor!

The bread is not too sweet, soft on the inside and crisp and crunchy on the corners (the end piece is my favorite!) Plus it comes together in minutes. All you need for this recipe is two bowls. No stand mixer needed!



I used both lemon juice and lemon zest to make sure this loaf cake had lots of lemon flavor!

To top the bread I pour on a simple glaze (powdered sugar + lemon juice). It is amazing on this bread!!

This Lemon Blueberry Bread is perfect for breakfast or dessert!

    Hi Kelley if I wanted to make just a blueberry bread could I use this recipe and just cut out the lemon ?
