Lemon Blueberry Bread

It seems when I make something lemon I always tend to use cranberries with it.  Lemon Cranberry Muffins are a huge favourite of everyone in this house.  I am not a fan of blueberries but “the boys” are, so I thought I would change it up a bit this time and make a Lemon Blueberry bread to add to their lunch boxes this past week!


Here are the ingredients I used to make it.

To start, I put the eggs, sugar, sour cream, lemon rind,  lemon juice and yogurt in the bowl of my stand mixer and mixed until it was combined.

Then the eggs and vegetable oil..

Next i added the flour, baking powder and salt.
I put the blueberries in a large freezer bag with about 2 tbsp. of flour

Then folded the blueberries, mixing just until evenly distributed and then poured it into my prepared loaf pan.

I baked it at 350 degrees for about 1 hour,  until toothpick inserted came out clean.
(I started to slice it before the last picture lol… oops)
