There is something magical about the combination of blueberries and lemon.  Just the thought of these two flavors together makes my mouth water.  When I came across this recipe for Blueberry Lemon bread, I couldn’t resist.

This bread is really more of a cake.  It has the consistency of a pound cake but with all of the added flavor a quick bread.   Plus it’s bursting with the bright, happy flavors of lemon and blueberry!

If you’re a regular reader of It’s a Keeper, you know I love blueberries.  Some of my favorite blueberry recipes are my Perfect Blueberry Pie, Healthy Blueberry Pancakes and Baked Blueberry Oatmeal. They are so sweet and juicy.  Plus, blueberries are rich in antioxidants, high in fiber and potassium, and low in sodium.  It’s no wonder they’re a super-food!

And let’s not forget about the lemon.  Not only do lemons bring out the best in fruits that they are paired with, but they add a certain brightness to recipes that you just can’t get from other flavors.   Many recipes call for lemon zest (the outer yellow skin) since this is where most of the flavor is.  But this recipe also uses lemon juice to infuse a citrus-y flavor.

This delectable Blueberry Lemon Bread is a keeper in my book!  I think it’s best when served with a cup of tea!
