Blueberry Bread With Lemon Glaze

Serves 10

Blueberry bread topped with a sugary lemon glaze.


  • 1½ cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1⅓ cup granulated sugar, divided use
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp grated lemon peel
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1½ cup fresh blueberries
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Preheat your oven to 325 F. Butter and sugar a 8 1/2×4 1/2×2 1/2″ loaf pan. Set aside.
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Cream butter and 1 cup sugar using an electric mixer until fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition. Add in lemon peel.
  4. Mix in flour mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin with the flour mixture and end with the flour mixture.
  5. Coat blueberries lightly with a small amount of flour and gently fold them into the batter.
  6. Add batter to the loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean when it’s finished.
  7. Add the remaining 1/3 cup of sugar and lemon juice to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  8. Remove the loaf from the oven and pierce the top with a toothpick several times. Pour the hot sugar mixture over the loaf.
  9. Cool for 30 minutes in the pan, then turn the bread out of the pan to cool completely.
