I made this recipe for my parents — I would say the type of food I made the most growing up were different types of breads ( especially in high schools and college) — I am still trying to perfect that rosemary bread

The weather in Portland, OR is pretty gloomy right now — rain and cold for the next million days or so —- it is never a good sign when you go to the weather forecast and everyday is rain – so I wanted to make a bread ( it is a sweet bread of course) that is light and summery

We are huge fans of lemon ( since we had a lemon tree back in Los Angeles, CA —- it is so weird now having to pay for lemons)

The blueberries I used were frozen — great way to save some money


This bread is really simple to make – perfect recipe to teach to kids — plus most everything you need is already in your kitchen

You can use soy milk or heavy cream instead of milk – whatever floats your boat – use the same measurement amount

Lemon Blueberry

By the way my parents loved the bread 🙂 I cannot wait to make it again maybe with raspberries instead of blueberries
