MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 19, 2015

"This bread turned out really yummy. Took advise of other reviewers and cut cooking time to 50 minutes. Also covered the loaf pan with aluminum foil during the last ten minutes to ensure the top didn't brown too much. Unlike one other reviewer I thought the lemon flavor really came through. I did increase the blueberries to 1 1/2 cup and cut the sugar to 2/3 cup."

"Loved this cake! Very lemony and moist. Used frozen blueberries from our patch and followed recipe exactly. I agree with one of the other reviewers to start checking for doneness after about 45 minutes. Thanks for another great recipe!"

"This is the absolute best blueberry bread! The lemon juice and zest very nicely complements the blueberries. Regardless of the size of your loaf pan, I suggest setting the timer to 45 minutes then checking thereafter, as 60 minutes is too long as a starting point."

"Very good. I used only 3/4 cup of sugar in the bread and used powered sugar for the glaze."
