Countdown to Valentines Day ~ Lemony Blueberry Bread

Day 7 ♥ ONE WEEK LEFT!!!  Are you ready?!  
I'm not.  

But here's one more thing for you to consider for your sweetie.  My sweetie happens to be a big sucker for breads.  Especially sweet breads.  Even more especially sweet quick breads!  And this bread, my friends, is very VERY sweet!  Perfect for your Valentine!


1/3 c. butter, melted
1 c. sugar
3 Tbs fresh lemon juice
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. milk
2 tsp. lemon zest
1 c. fresh or frozen blueberries (thawed)

Whisk together melted butter and sugar.  Add in lemon juice and eggs.  Add half the flour, baking soda and salt.  Whisk in the milk, then whisk in the rest of the flour.  Stir until fully combined.  Fold in lemon zest and blueberries.  Pour into greased loaf pan.  If desired, sprinkle with raw sugar on top before baking.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour, until done all the way through.  Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then remove to wire rack.  If desired, make a glaze out of 1/2 c. powdered sugar, 2 Tbs. lemon juice and milk as needed to achieve the consistency you want.
