Alaskan Blueberry Lemon Tea Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Member 610488

When I lived in Alaska, during blueberry season it was fun to climb the mountains and pick blueberries. The one hazard was that the bears were doing the same thing so it was a race to see who got the most berries during the season. The joke is that if you saw a large pile of blueberries on the trail, turn around and go away because it means bears are in the area. Bears don't digest blueberries very well so they come out whole alot of the time.

I made this for my daughter's tea party this weekend. I tried a piece right after it came from the oven and the glaze was freshly poured over it...and was very weary about serving it to my guest. Wrapped it up in foil and froze it for 3 days, then when it was thawed I tried it again.....I don't know what happened but it was absolutely amazing! Great recipe.
