Lemon Blueberry Bread

By Santhi Therese


Lemon Blueberry Bread is a delicious tea time snack and also a healthy breakfast. Blueberries are rich in antioxidants, high in fiber, high in potassium and low in sodium. The lemon’s flavour along with its glaze makes this dish unbeatable. So try it out and share your comments!

Furthermore, I would like to give some of my suggestions for making perfect lemon blueberry bread. Firstly, try to use wild blueberries which are firm, plump and fragrant. Check the underside of the container for any wet spots because blueberries are now sold in plastic containers. Also try to use small blueberries for this lemon blueberry bread and don’t forget to toss with a flour. Because, it helps to prevent them from falling to the bottom of the bread while baking. Finally, wash the lemon properly before using. While grating the outer yellow skin of the lemon, don’t remove the white membrane that is underneath because it is very bitter tasting and then squeeze the lemon by hand.

For Lemon Glaze

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 tbsp white sugar



♦ Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.

♦ Then butter or spray the bottom and sides of 9-inch loaf pan.

♦ In a wide bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and orange zest until combined.

♦ In a separate bowl, place blueberries. Remove 1 tbsp of the flour mixture and toss well the berries with the flour until coated.

♦ In the bowl of an electric stand mixer or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until soft and creamy. (It takes 1 minute)

♦ Then add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. (2 to 3 mins at medium-high speed)

♦ Then add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, scrape the sides in between. Beat in the vanilla essence until just combined.

♦ Turn the speed to low, then add flour mixture in 3 additions and milk in 2 additions alternately. (starts and ends with flour)

♦ Then gently fold the blueberries in the mixture by using a rubber spatula.

♦ Scrape or pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake it for about 55 to 60 mins or until the bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Lemon Glaze

♦ Mix sugar with lemon juice in a small microwave bowl, and microwave it for 20 to 30 seconds or until the sugar dissolves.

♦ After removing the bread from the oven, place the pan on a wire rack, then pierce some holes on the top of the loaf by using wooden skewers or toothpick and then brush with the lemon glaze.

♦ Set it aside for 30 mins in the pan then remove the bread from the pan and cool it completely on a wire rack.
