Our oldest son loves lemon bread and often requested it when he was still living at home. He is now living in Seattle and as I was making this bread I was thinking of him and wishing I could send him a loaf! I love plain lemon bread but I have to say the blueberries are a delicious addition!
Lemon Blueberry Bread
1 ½ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 cup Greek Yogurt
1 cup sugar
Zest of two lemons
½ tsp vanilla
½ cup coconut oil
1 ½ cups blueberries tossed with 1 Tbsps. flour.
Preheat your oven to 350. Grease a loaf pan and set it aside.
Combine the yogurt, sugar, eggs, lemon zest, vanilla and coconut oil. In a smaller bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly add the sugar and yogurt mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix well.
Toss the blueberries with a Tbsp of flour. Then fold them in the batter. Pour the batter into your loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes of until done. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then place on a a wire rack to cool.
Combine 1 cup of powdered sugar with 3 TBSP of fresh lemon juice. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled loaf.
Perfect with an afternoon cup of tea!
