My recipe of the day is for Lemon Blueberry Bread  with the #BreadBakers blogging group as we meet up on the second Tuesday to bake up delicious recipes for all types of breads and this month the topic is on quick breads.

I decided to bake up a lemony blueberry bread as it is one of my favorite things at this point  in Spring with Summer almost upon us: to mix up the blueberries of Spring with my beloved Summer lemons.

How to Serve?

I suppose everyone has their fav way to eat quick  bread but mine is mostly for breakfast, spread with very cold butter. It’s perfect that way, with the bread even also slightly chilled for  me. With a small family, we will have plenty, so there will be tons around for afternoon coffee or tea, and this makes a fabulous base for macerated blueberries with whipped cream for a shortcake.

As the days pass and it gets stale, it even makes a handy French toast, dipped in beaten eggs and griddled until golden. With all these choices, maybe a second loaf? And if you change your mind mid-stream, it freezes well too.

  1. Your loaf is lovely just as it is, Sue, but the French toast idea is brilliant! Or how about toasted with a scoop of ice cream? This would be very popular at our house.

  2. That is one heavenly loaded bread with blueberry. I can just imagine how delicious it would be with lemon and blueberry. yum
