Lemon Blueberry Bread


Don't you love Pinterest?  It's like the jackpot for all things great.  I found this delicious recipe for Lemon Blueberry Bread on there last week, and had to try it!  

It truly is not a bread, though.  Just a warning.  It is more like a cake.  It is so moist and delicious.  And the lemon syrup and glaze are amazing.  I found and adapted the original recipe via Pinterest HERE.  

Ingredients:

For the bread:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 TBS flour (keep separate)
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

For the lemon syrup:
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar

For the lemon glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
3 TBS lemon juice

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Grease and flour a 9x5" loaf pan.

Stir together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl.

In a larger bowl, stir together yogurt, sugar, eggs, lemon zest vanilla, and oil.  

Add dry ingredients into the wet, stirring until fully mixed.  Fold in blueberries (still frozen is fine).

Pour into loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes or until set.

Once slightly cooled, remove bread from pan and place on a cooling rack.

While you're waiting to dig in to your delicious bread, add lemon juice and sugar for the lemon syrup in a small pan.  Heat until well combined.  Slowly pour over warm bread to coat the top.

Mix together the powdered sugar and lemon juice for the lemon glaze in a small bowl.  Pour evenly over the top of your bread.

Allow bread to cool completely before serving!  

Our "bread" was gone in two days!  It was tasty, but definitely more like a cake!
