Lemon blueberry bread is a delicious baked treat that combines the tangy flavor of lemons with the sweet burst of blueberries. It’s a perfect option for breakfast, brunch, or as a tasty snack. Here’s a simple recipe to make lemon blueberry bread:




– 2 cups all-purpose flour

– 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

– 1/4 teaspoon salt

– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

– 1 cup granulated sugar

– 2 large eggs

– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

– 1 tablespoon lemon zest

– 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

– 1/2 cup buttermilk

– 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries


For the lemon glaze:


– 1 cup powdered sugar

– 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

– 1 teaspoon lemon zest




  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan.


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.


  1. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. You can use an electric mixer or mix by hand.


  1. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Mix well.


  1. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix.


  1. Gently fold in the fresh blueberries, being careful not to crush them.


  1. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly.


  1. Bake in the preheated oven for about 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The baking time may vary, so keep an eye on it.


  1. Once baked, remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.


  1. While the bread is cooling, prepare the lemon glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest until smooth.


  1. Once the bread is completely cooled, drizzle the lemon glaze over the top.


  1. Slice and serve the lemon blueberry bread. Enjoy!


This recipe yields a moist and flavorful bread with a tangy lemon flavor and bursts of juicy blueberries. It’s a delightful treat that pairs well with a cup of tea or coffee.
