quick bread week…blueberry lemon sour cream bread

Good morning!  I’ve been sharing quick bread recipes all week, and it’s been what I consider good baking weather…cool, damp, and rainy.  Just the perfect kind of weather to stay home and bake.  And when that warm, fresh baked bread comes out of the oven, it makes for a delicious snack or breakfast food!

Today’s quick bread recipe is BLUEBERRY LEMON SOUR CREAM BREAD.  The sour cream gives it it’s moistness, and there is a hint of lemon flavor due to the juice and zest.  And of course, it is chocked full of blueberries…almost 2 cups in the entire recipe.

As with most bread recipes, the wet and dry ingredients are combined separately, and then mixed all together.  Once all the ingredients are combined, the batter is poured into a loaf pan with more blueberries sprinkled on top before baking.

Did I mention that this bread has A LOT of blueberries?  Here’s a warning…be careful when slicing it.  I always have a few berries “squirt” their juice at me.
