Quick sweet breads like this are one of my favorite breakfasts. I like to make them the day before and then in the morning there is a delicious homemade breakfast that the whole family enjoys, and all I have to do is slice it! Sometimes I will double the recipe and put one loaf in the freezer for an easy breakfast another day.

We bought a huge container of blueberries and after two days of binge eating them, we were ready to enjoy them in a new way. The combination of lemon and blueberry is one of my favorites! This bread has such bright, fresh flavor, and the texture is moist and dense. The lemony glaze drizzled on top really pumps up the lemon flavor and adds just enough sweetness that it feels quite decadent. My kids were so excited to be eating “dessert” for breakfast, haha!

With or without the glaze, this bread is a treat! You can use fresh or frozen berries, just remember to keep them frozen if you go that route. No thawing first or you will end up with purple bread :)

What are some of your favorite ways to eat blueberries?

  27. Whoa, mama! This looks amazing! That drizzle! Wow! Another trick to try is to coat your frozen blueberries in flour so they don’t sink to the bottom of the bread as it bakes.

    making this now and a little concerned. I’m already past 55 minutes and still gooey on top but getting browner than I would like.

  34. Aliea says:

    Was wondering if you could use frozen blueberry in place of fresh blueberry

  35. flora says:

    I found this on pint rest and actually made this today! It was Delicious! !! The only issue I came across was that my glaze wasn’t forming so I added more lemon juice and a bit water. It was think and had to spread on top with a butter knife So I didn’t get the gooey effect. Does anyone know what I did wrong ? !
