For the Loaf:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

For the Lemon Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon


Step by Step:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set this dry mixture aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Add the vanilla extract and lemon zest, and mix until combined.
  5. Gradually add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with buttermilk. Start and end with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  6. Gently fold in the fresh blueberries, taking care not to crush them.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. While the loaf is baking, prepare the Lemon Glaze. In a bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, fresh lemon juice, and lemon zest until smooth and glossy.
  10. Once the loaf is baked, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. Drizzle the prepared Lemon Glaze over the cooled loaf, allowing it to cascade down the sides invitingly.



As we stand here, marveling at the creation before us, the Lemon Blueberry Loaf with its luscious Lemon Glaze beckons. It’s a masterpiece of balance, where the tartness of lemons meets the sweet embrace of blueberries in a dance that awakens the senses. Each slice is a canvas of flavor, a symphony of textures. As we savor the first bite, a rush of summer envelops us, and for a moment, all is right with the world. In the realm of baking, this loaf stands as a testament to the beauty that can emerge from the marriage of simple ingredients and a little bit of culinary magic. Share it, savor it, and let its taste transport you to the sun-kissed orchards where lemons and blueberries bask in the warmth of summer’s embrace.
