This bread has a nice balance of lemon and blueberry flavor, with the texture of pound cake. For a special touch, serve with honey butter or lemon curd.


  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and lemon zest; beat well. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Fold in blueberries. Pour into a greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Combine topping ingredients; spread over warm bread.
