Lemon Blueberry Bread

This lemon blueberry bread is the perfect quick bread to make year round. It I delicious with fresh or frozen blueberries. Frozen blueberries, just need to be thawed a little bit. It is simple to make and perfect for a snack or with your morning coffee. This bread has always been a favorite. My kids love when I pack in their lunches or for snack.

One of things about coming up with recipes is making them easy and no mixer needed. I know not everyone has a stand mixer and if you do there is a chance it is in the closet and or cabinet, which can make you not want to make a recipe. Trust me I get that. I have some appliances that I put in a closet and when it comes time, do I really feel like getting it out? However my mixer is out most of the time, or in a cabinet that is easily accessible. But for those of you that don’t want to get a mixer, I hear you and I’ve got you covered with lots of recipes that don’t require a mixer.

So grab a mixing bowl and whisk and put this recipe on your must bake list. Don’t worry I am not a lemon person and this recipe just has hint of lemon.
