DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Important: grease and flour two loaf pans.
  • Cream butter and sugar.
  • Add eggs and beat until smooth.
  • Add buttermilk.
  • Mix dry ingredients together and add to buttermilk mixture.
  • Blend well.
  • Mix in lemon juice and zest.
  • Gently fold in blueberries and only mix until incorporated.
  • Pour batter into loaf pans.
  • Bake loaves on the middle rack of the oven for 60 to 65 minutes.
  • Cool bread 10 minutes, remove from pan and place on a large cookie sheet, top side up.
  • For icing: Combind icing ingredients in a bowl.
  • Beat icing with an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Drizzle icing over the warm loaves.
  • The icing will harden when the bread cools to room temperature.
  • I thought I should mention, if you make this bread without the addition of the blueberries, the baking time is closer to 50 minutes and I recommend increasing the amount of buttermilk from 2/3 cup to 1 cup.

“I love Trader Joe's Blueberry Lemon Bread so I was looking for a recipe that was similar. This what I came up with. Actually, I can't take all of the credit. I modified recipe #19254 for Glazed Lemon Cake slightly and added blueberries, then baked it in loaf pans. My whole family loves this bread. In fact, I think it's better than Trader Joe's Blueberry Lemon Bread....geez....I know, I am so modest ;-)”
