Informs Julianne Johnson of Grove City, Minnesota, "Of all the quick breads we had growing up, this beautifully glazed berry-studded loaf is the best!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
  • GLAZE:
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugar, lemon juice and eggs. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into egg mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Fold in the blueberries, nuts and lemon peel.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
