All I can say is I personally almost
ate the whole loaf by myself it's so good! A must try you won't be sorry this is the best
berry loaf I've ever made!
Blueberry Lemon Loaf Recipe
1/3 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup overflowing blueberries
Topping after baking:
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
(for me this is what makes the loaf perfect!)
Heavily grease a loaf pan and I would also use non stick and flour.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat the sugar and butter together a few minutes. Add the eggs, lemon juice till blended.
At a little at a time add the flour, salt, baking powder and peel to this wet mixture until blended. Fold in the blueberries.
Bake for 1 hour or until middle is firm using toothpick method.
Cool 3 or 4 minutes and invert onto cooling rack or wax paper before adding lemon/sugar glaze topping.
NOTE MY PREFERRED TOPPING:
The sugar glaze adds an extra lemony flavor by using the 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons lemon juice mixed together and pour over warm loaf.
Alternate topping garnish: dust with powdered sugar or one other option use a glaze using a powdered sugar, lemon extract and water frosting.
