can't believe i haven't reviewed this. i absolutely love this bread. the combination of sweet lemon with blueberries is fantastic. it turns out a nice, moist loaf with a lovely lemon glaze over top. this is my go-to recipe for a nice dessert loaf, and now that blueberries are coming back into season i'm sure i will start making this a lot, just as i did last year and the year before :) thanks for sharing!!

The directions are easy to follow, it baked in an hour in my oven. I did not prepare the glaze, served with butter this made a delicious loaf to serve for Sunday morning brunch. A great tasting loaf!

mmmmmmm This was so scrumptious. How nice to have a slight variation in your blueberry bread. That hint of lemon is just right...and it's so easy to prepare.
