  2. Dredge the blueberries in 2 teaspoons flour; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Mix in the lemon zest. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.

Blueberries and lemon really go well together. I like to top my loaf with a glaze made by mixing 1 tb lemon juice and 2 tb sugar. I brush it on the hot loaf and return it to the oven for 5 minut...

Quick, wonderful recipe! I had added another 1/2 cup of blueberries that I didn't want to go to waste, and it was too much. Made the bread too chock full of blueberries - it was almost blue, an...

I made this recipe with my oldest son. I didn't bother flouring the blueberries, we just tossed them in when we added the flour. We did make these a little different than the recipe asks--we com...

This bread was quick and tasted good. It could have used a little more flavour so I made a lemon glaze and drizzled it over top of the bread and helped it out with the little bit of sweetness I ...

Love this recipe -- the loaf came out picture perfect, moist, and delicious. I even altered the recipe (didn't happen to have butter or milk at the time) and used vegetable oil and water, and it...

Light lemon flavor, excellent cake-like texture, full of blueberries.

This bread is okay, but nothing spectacular. I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh, but still did the whole rolling berries in flour thing. I really wish I hadn't, because all the berries s...
