Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a dry skillet, toast walnuts over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk to combine.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, lemon zest, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, melted butter and oil. Whisk just to combine.
  5. Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Add liquid ingredients and mix gently just to combine; do not over-mix. Gently fold in walnuts and blueberries.
  6. Pour batter into a greased and floured 8 x 4-inch loaf pan. Bake in preheated oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on rack for 20 minutes; remove from pan, cool to room temperature.
  7. To make the glaze, combine sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Bring to boil over high heat, then reduce heat and continue stirring until sugar dissolves.
  8. Brush glaze over bread while still warm.
  9. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Very good, moist bread, despite the reduced amount of fat compared to other breads. I did not use the walnuts because my kids didn't want nuts in the bread. I poked little holes in the bread while warm and then added the glaze, which helps keep the bread moist and full of lemon flavor. I also used lemon extract instead of vanilla.

This bread was pretty good however, I feel that it was missing a little something. I realized that it tasted awesome when you got a bite with the glaze on it. I'm thinking with a tad more sugar and lemon in the bread this would be a 5 star recipe in my opinion. I am willing to try though. :)

A good bread. A little dense but with good lemon flavor. I used dried lemon zest and skipped the glaze, since the bread would not be served immediately.
