Original recipe yields 12 servings

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.

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.
