I’m still on a lemon recipe kick around here, and today I’m sharing an easy and delicious Lemon Blueberry Bread. If you’ve never paired lemons and blueberries, they make a fantastic combo. The lemon lightens and brightens up the tartness of the blueberries, creating a delicious medley of fruit flavors. This recipes is perfect for spring!
Even with all these lemon recipes I’ve been sharing, I think we still need more Vitamin C. One of us has been sick every day for the last 43 days (yeah, at this point, I’m counting). Between cold and flu season and severe allergies here in Phoenix, I probably should buy stock in Kleenex. So if I’m going to bake, I might as well try and make something with a little, or a lot, of Vitamin C. This bread gets a double dose of Vitamin C from both the lemons and the blueberries.
I used frozen blueberries in my bread, but if you have fresh blueberries on hand, feel free to use those instead. This bread is more of a sweet, dessert type bread. I also have a lighter Lemon Blueberry Muffin recipe if you want to try that (it even has a gluten free variation).
My husband was very skeptical of this flavor combination at first, but it quickly won him over once he tried it. We actually now prefer a lemon twist to blueberry recipes. Next up I want to try some lemon blueberry pancakes, maybe this recipe from Bake, Love, Give.
