Lemon Blueberry Bread with Fresh Blueberries

The best fresh blueberry recipe here, not frozen is really the key to this fluffy sweet bread and the perfect summertime recipe when they’re plump and ready to be picked. It’s a little bit addicting if you ask me.

  1. Flour
  2. Eggs
  3. Butter
  4. Sugar
  5. Fresh blueberries – we were able to pick blueberries in Temecula
  6. Lemon
  7. Baking powder
  8. Buttermilk – great for making it really moist

Moist Blueberry Bread Recipe

Ever since I was little I loved anything blueberry flavored. Fresh fruit was even better but during the winter frozen are second best. I recently made these easy bite sized blueberry pie filling dump cake cupcakes that were incredible and incorporated blueberries with cake mix.

Lemon Blueberry Loaf Recipe

Of course you can skip the lemon juice and lemon zest if you choose but a little is tasty. Bake and serve it in an adorable loaf pan and put it right out to eat! Makes a great gift made in smaller sizes or muffins in a cute bowl wrapped with cellophane with a ribbon!

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  • Blend together melted or room temperature butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, lemon juice and zest. Mix until well combined.
  • Slowly add some of the dry ingredients in bowl and a little buttermilk and gently stir.
  • Continue doing this until everything other than blueberries are combined.
  • Rinse fresh (best) or frozen blueberries.
  • Add 1 tbsp of flour to the berries in a bowl and use hands to mix until they are coated (will help so they don’t sink to the bottom).
  • Gently fold berries into wet ingredient batter.
  • Spray non stick spray into a loaf pan and pour the batter in. Put into oven for about 50 minutes or until toothpick in the middle comes out mostly clean.

I say mostly clean because totally dry means that it won’t be as moist and tender. The best way to test is really with your finger. Really. Just gently touch in the center. If it sinks, you need more time in the oven. If it immediately springs back then it is ready and take that baby out to cool on a rack!

Blueberry Lemon Bread

You can make some easy delicious lemon glaze with just some powdered sugar, enough milk to thin and some lemon flavor extract. Using fresh lemon juice is best but whatever you have on hand. Let loaf cool completely. In your bowl whisk together glaze and pour on top, or on each piece when served.

Looking for other great brunch menu ideas? I mean this one is fantastic but we have made other fabulous options. If you want to fill out your table when guests come over I have a couple of others that will go along with this very theme, and pretty too.

But along the lemon route, these lemon crinkle cookies are the bomb. You can see them below. Homemade is how we made these but with cake mix is possible too. Both options are available in that one. Sometimes we don’t always have the time to go all the way from scratch, I get it y’all.

If you want to know how to half a recipe to make less, read this post. Tip: Spray your pan with non stick spray to clean a pot.

How do you prevent the berries from falling to the bottom of the muffin while baking?

Whether you are making blueberry bread or muffins you will want to follow this tip and trick so they won’t sink. If you want your berries to remain in the middle and top of your batter, rinse, and then toss in a bit of flour. Coating the outside will keep them in place as you want them to be.
