Lemon Blueberry Bread

Updated: Oct 9


Whoever decided to put blueberries and lemon together, bravo! I've made this flavor combination with lemonade, cheesecake, scones, and now - something super easy and yummy - bread!


This was my first time making "bread" (although without any yeast, I'd say this is more of a cake than anything) and I was extra nervous that something would go wrong. However, this is really the easiest dish to put together and it just looks so delicious!


I brought this to a party and we devoured it as is, but I'm envisioning powdered sugar or even a lemon glaze on top if you want to get really fancy...

Ingredients

All-Purpose Flour | 1 and 3/4 cups + 1 tbsp. | $0.08

Baking Powder | 1 tsp. | $0.02

Salt | 1/2 tsp. | $0.01

Maple Syrup | 3/4 cup| $0.75

Greek Yogurt | 1/4 cup | $0.31

Vegetable Oil | 1/4 cup | $0.08

Eggs (Large) | 2 ct. | $0.22

Lemon Juice | 3 tbsp. | $0.79

Blueberries | 3/4 cup | $1.63


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a loaf pan; I used a 9 x 5.

2. In a small bowl, combine the flour (save the tbsp. for later), baking powder, and salt.

3. In a large bowl, whisk the wet ingredients until combined. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until thoroughly mixed.


4. Toss blueberries with the tbsp. of flour [Pro tip: this keeps ingredients from sinking to the bottom of whatever you are baking - I use this trick for berries, sprinkles, nuts, etc!]


5. Gently fold blueberries into the batter. If you like an intense lemony flavor, you can zest the lemon and add it at this step.


6. Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 35-50 minutes, until a knife or toothpick in the middle comes out clean.


7. Let cool for about 10 minutes and transfer to a wire rack. Enjoy!
