GREAT recipe! I made this just for fun, and I must say that I was skeptical about the icing. It was WONDERFUL, however, and added just the right amount of tang to the bread. This baked up nice and fluffy--light, not heavy, but also not dry. THANKS!
this was so good very light and the lemon adds excellent flavor. it was easy and went fast at our house. thanks for such a great recipe!
Absolutely delicious. Love blueberries and the lemon adds a real freshness. I did add a glug of vanilla as suggested by other reviews. Thanks for a great recipe!
A very tasty bread! I (1- 1/2) the recipe, and baked in a bundt pan. The glaze is very delicious, and the cake keeps well. Thanks!
June 11, 2010: Absolutely fabulous! Turned out VERY MOIST! I used 1 1/2 x the recipe and made it in a bundt pan, baked perfectly in exactly 1 hour 15 mins. I added in juice of a whole lemon to the batter along with the zest, had the right amount of lemony flavour and the sugar was perfect for us, not overly sweet. The icing is a must, that does take it to the next level! Have I mentioned how VERY MOIST it is! It's more like sponge cake than a bread. WE LOVED it and everybody else who have tried it! Thank you so much, mstrcook, for sharing this wonderful recipe, this one is definitely a keeper for sure! Update on Nov 09, 2010: I've made this cake several times now in both a bundt pan and loaf tin, and it's been a big hit each time!
This bread is pretty good. I took other reviewers' advice and mixed my frozen blueberries in with some flour and they did not sink to the bottom. I agree the actual bread lacked a real lemon flavor - that came from the glaze. Next time I might double the amount of lemon rind and forgo the icing. I forgot about this bread and it cooked an extra 10 minutes, but nothing was harmed. It was moist and delicious. I also used whole wheat flour with success. Thanks for posting.
Delicious! I reserved about 1/4 cup of the flour mixture and tossed it with my blueberries - this prevented the berries from sinking to the bottom. I used all of the icing, and thought it was a bit too much - the flavor was good, but it made the cake almost soggy. Great recipe!
Yum! What a great twist on blueberry bread. Doubled the recipe so I could freeze one loaf. Perfect use of in-season blueberries!
Made this for a family friend's birthday a few months ago and I keep forgetting to review it, but he still waxes poetic about how delicious it was every time we see him! I believe I added a splash of vanilla, doubled the recipe for 2 loaves, making one with fresh berries and one with frozen, both were equally scrumptious.
Definitely making this one again.
