For my juice cleanse, I bought close to 20 pints of blueberries. Annnnnnd definitely didn't use them all. I got a ridiculous craving for something sweet this evening, and decided a lemon blueberry bread would do the trick! I chose this recipe because I didn't want to wait for dough to rise.
It was reluctant to come out and I didn't want to ruin the loaf before I could take a picture, so sorry. This is all you get.
The Most Delicious Lemon-Blueberry Bread Ever.
adapted from Eat Yourself Skinny!
6 Tbsp. butter, softened (not melted!)
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
zest from 1 large lemon
1/2 c. nonfat milk
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
dash of salt
2 pints blueberries
juice from 1 large lemon
3/4 c. confectioner's sugar
Preheat oven to 350* F. Cream butter. Add sugar, eggs, vanilla, and lemon zest. In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients, and then mix into wet mixture. Add milk. When everything is combined, gently fold in blueberries.
Grease/spray a loaf pan, and toss your bread mixture in! Bake for 55 - 60 minutes (until toothpick comes out clean).
Allow your bread to cool for about ten minutes. While you're waiting, whip up the lemon glaze! Remove the bread from the pan and drizzle glaze on top. Enjoy!
