Summer is winding down and the focus is turning to fall cooking and recipes. I was squeezing in a little bit of summer baking to freeze some goodies for those winter nights. This Blueberry Lemon Bread is one of those moist, breads that tastes like summer yet just as delicious to have any time of year.
I love this recipe with fresh blueberries so if you are thinking of trying this definitely use fresh blueberries if you can. The burst of fresh blueberries in this bread makes this the perfect companion to a cup of coffee or tea. Serve it for breakfast, for brunch or try it with some vanilla ice cream for a tasty dessert.
