To prepare this loaf, a batter is created by combining all-purpose flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. The mixture of dry ingredients serves as the foundation for the bread.
Freshly grated lemon zest and a splash of lemon juice are added to the batter, infusing it with a bright citrus flavor and aroma. This lemony essence enhances the overall taste of the loaf.
Blueberries, either fresh or frozen, are gently folded into the batter, creating pockets of burst-in-your-mouth juiciness and a lovely purple hue throughout the loaf.
The batter is then poured into a loaf pan and baked until it’s golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, ensuring the bread is moist and fully cooked.
The final presentation is a Lemon Blueberry Loaf with a beautiful golden crust, speckled with purple bursts of blueberries. The loaf offers a tantalizing aroma of zesty lemons and sweet blueberries, making it a delightful treat perfect for breakfast, a snack, or a sweet ending to any meal.
