Very Lemon-Blueberry Bread


1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp grated lemon rind
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup blueberries tossed with flour to coat

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 9X5X3 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, mix the butter, cup of sugar and lemon juice. Beat in the egg.

In another bowl, mix the flour, baking power and salt. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk, stirring just enough to blend. Stir in the blueberries, grated rind, and nuts. Pour the batter into the greased and floured loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven. Bake 60 minutes.(Time may vary depending on the wetness of the berries.)

Cool 10 minutes and then remove the bread from the pan while still warm. Drizzle lemon glaze over the top and into the cracks that form while baking. Store, foil wrapped for 1 day before slicing.
