  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest

Instructions

  1. In bowl add flour, salt, and baking powder.  Set aside for later
  2. In small bowl add blueberries and coat with 1 TBSP of flour, this helps them from sinking to the bottom of the loaf.
  3. In mixer cream butter.  Add eggs, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla and almond extract.  Mix until well combined.
  4. Gradually add flour and milk, scraping sides with spatula so make sure it is all mixed well.   Fold in blueberries
  5. Bake 350 in loaf pans prepped with non stick cooking spray.  Cook for 50-60 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl make icing by combining powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Mix until smooth.  Set aside to drizzle onto finished loaf.
  7. Remove loaf from oven,  Let cool completely then carefully remove from pan and drizzle icing on top.  There is often a little extra icing I like to drizzle it on the individual slices because I LOVE ICING!
