Ingredients

Mini Lemon Blueberry Loaves

  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 3 tablespoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoons Salt
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1 ½ cups Sugar
  • ½ cup Butter melted
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 teaspoons Lemon Paste or Lemon Extract
  • 3 Tablespoons Lemon Zest
  • 2 ½ cups Blueberries fresh
  • 2 tablespoons Flour to toss blueberries in before adding them to the batter

Lemon Glaze

  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ cup Lemon Juice

Instructions

Mini Lemon Blueberry Loaves

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease 6 mini loaf pans, or line with parchment paper, and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, melted butter, sour cream, lemon paste (or extract) and lemon zest.
  • Combine the flour mixture with the egg mixture and stir until smooth.
  • Toss 1 ½ cups of blueberries with 2 teaspoons of flour and then gently fold into the batter. Divide the batter evenly between your prepared bread pans and top with the remaining 1 cup blueberries.
  • Bake for 28-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 10 minutes, then gently run a knife around the edges of the bread and tease the bread out of the pan. Let cool completely on wire racks while you make the lemon glaze.

Lemon Glaze

  • In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar and lemon juice and whisk until combined. Use a piping bag or a spoon to drizzle on top of cooled bread before serving. Enjoy!
