1 1/2 cups Flour

1/2 cup Sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons Baking powder

1/2 teaspoon Salt

2 Eggs

1/2 cup Milk

1/3 cup Butter, melted

For the Glaze:

1 cup Powdered sugar

2 tablespoons Lemon juice

1 tablespoon Butter, softened


For the Bread:

Preheat oven to 350

Grease a  8" x 4" loaf pan and line it with parchment paper if desired.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Make a well in the center, add eggs, and lightly beat.

Add in the milk, melted butter, vanilla, zest, and lemon juice.

Stir to combine.

Fold in 1 cup of blueberries.

(If you use frozen blueberries, do not thaw them, they will discolor the bread.)

Pour into a loaf pan.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean.

Cool for 10 minutes in the pan then place onto a platter.

For the Glaze:

In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and butter.

Drizzle over warm bread and cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!
