Of all the quick breads we had growing up, this beautifully glazed berry-studded loaf is the best! The lemon glaze adds a lustrous finish and locks in moisture. —Julianne Johnson, Grove City, Minnesota

"I made the blueberry bread into Blueberry Muffins. I didn't made the glaze for the top. I did add more berries then the recipe call for. They were delicious, my husband took them to work and passed them out to co-workers. Several people ask for the recipe. This will be my go to recipe for Blueberry Muffins. Thanks, Taste of Home cooks."

"Can't say I followed the recipe to a T as I had half a lime and didn't know what to do with it. I followed the recipe as written but used lemon-lime juice and peel. This is a wonderful recipe and will definitely make again!"
