Lemon Blueberry Bread
Recipe type: High Altitude Baking
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup + ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1½ cups + ½ tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  2. Grease a 9 x 5" loaf pan and line the bottom with a strip of parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, lemon juice, eggs, and vanilla.
  4. In another bowl, combine the 1½ cups flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Alternately whisk the flour mixture and milk into the butter/egg mixture, stirring until just combined. Some flour streaks are fine.
  6. Toss the blueberries with the ½ tablespoon of flour. This prevents them from sinking to the bottom of the bread while they bake.
  7. Fold the blueberries and lemon zest into the batter, taking care not to over mix.
  8. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the bread is a light golden brown on the edges and a skewer poked into the center comes out clean.
  9. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then invert onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  10. Once cooled, wrap well in plastic wrap.
