Lemon Blueberry Bread

 After acquiring an obscene amount of lemons from Costco last week I decided I needed to put them to good use before they start to pass their prime. I came across this recipe on The Joy of Baking's site and was drooling simply from the picture. I love the combination of citrus and berries and lemon and blueberry is just a timeless combo that compliments each other so well. This bread had a great texture- light and moist, while also having a great flavor- not too sweet with just a touch of tart. Perfect for the spring weather and it looks really gorgeous too! Give it a shot and see what you think.


Lemon Blueberry Bread Recipe:
1 1/2 cups (195 grams) all-purpose flour
