This was very good. Loved the lemon flavor with the blueberry! It was moist and easy. I will definitely be making again!

I made this recipe for guests visiting for dinner... I watched as it was the first dish to be cleaned off! ha ha ha! No left overs and still requests for more : ) It didn't crumble and was easy to slice. Since I used frozen blueberries, I put the blueberries in the flour mixture and give them a good coating before gently adding liquid ingredients. This keeps the color intact and prevents making the batter blue ; )

This is awesome bread. The only things I did different were, I added lemon extract instead of vanilla, added 1 TBS lemon rind, because I really like the lemon flavor. I also used coconut milk instead of 2%. This is a keeper and will be made many more times. Thanks for sharing!
