1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup fresh (Iused fresh since they are in season) or frozen blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl, beat together butter, 1 cup sugar, juice and eggs. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; stir into egg mixture alternately with milk. Fold in lemon zest, nuts, and blueberries. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine lemon juice and 1/4 cup sugar in a small bowl. Remove bread from pan and drizzle with glaze. Cool on a wire rack.
This bread is so good and easy to make...my only problem was I didn't grease the pan well enough and one of my loaves didn't come out all the way...so sad. I want to try this bread using raspberrys...we're off to the farmers marker to see if we can find some there.
