With a name like Glazed Lemon-Blueberry Loaf, you know you’re in for a treat. Tangy and sweet, thanks to the fresh blueberries and lemon juice, the secret to this recipe is stirring sour cream (or plain yogurt) into the batter for an ultra-moist crumb! And because this is lemon-blueberry bread, we couldn’t resist upping the flavor with a lemon-extract and powdered sugar glaze on top—don’t skip it, really! True lemon lovers might want to add an garnish of fresh zest for an extra pop of citrus. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Instead of using lemon extract in the glaze, try adding fresh squeezed lemon juice instead.
  • Wrap the cooled loaf tightly in plastic wrap and store at room temperature up to 4 days or refrigerate up to 10 days.
