A family recipe for our favorite blueberry lemon bread. No mixer required! Like most sweet loaves, it tastes best when allowed to sit for a day, wrapped in plastic wrap.

Yield:
1 - 9x5 inch loaf

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon

  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup melted butter

  • 2 eggs

  • ¼ cup sour cream

  • cup milk

  • 1 ⅔ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ¼ cups frozen blueberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

  2. Grate the zest from the lemon onto a small plate. Cut the lemon in half, and squeeze the juice from both halves. Make a topping by whisking together 1 teaspoon of the lemon zest, 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, and the confectioners' sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.

  3. Whisk together the white sugar, melted butter, eggs, sour cream, the remaining lemon zest, and the remaining lemon juice in a large bowl until evenly blended. Stir in the milk; set aside.

  4. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate large bowl. Remove 3 tablespoons of the flour mixture and set aside. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; pour the milk mixture into the well and stir the batter just until combined.

  5. Fold the frozen blueberries into the reserved 3 tablespoons of the flour mixture, then fold the blueberries into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 60 minutes.

  7. Remove from oven; immediately poke holes all over the top of the loaf with a toothpick, and pour the topping evenly over the loaf. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
