Creative Blueberry and Lemon Bread Recipe

Recipes that you can grow are my absolute favorite. Blueberries and lemons are both ingredients I recently harvest from my Ohio garden. In today’s post, I share one of my favorite Creative Blueberry and Lemon Bread Recipes that you can enjoy any time of the year.

Blueberry and Lemon Bread RecipeFresh blueberry and citrus bread

It took me a few years to learn how to grow blueberries.  My favorite ones to grow are the small varieties in containers.  It is so much easier to control the soil and conditions. If you have yet to tackle this adventure then you can always get blueberries from the local market.  I always have a bag full of organic berries in my freezer that I’ve bought locally.  One thing I am really good at is growing citrus year-round.  This recipe (and any other with fresh) is especially amazing with homegrown produce.  Below I share the easy-to-make recipe including a printable version.  I hope you give this treat a try and be sure to tell me what you think by commenting on my website.

Creative Blueberry and Lemon Bread Recipe


  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup oil coconut (you can use vegetable oil as substitute.)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup blueberries + 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
    Lemon Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set aside a 9x5 loaf pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, sour cream, eggs, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract until fully combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, toss the blueberries with the 2 teaspoons of flour.
  6. Fold the blueberries into the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes. You should be able to poke a toothpick into the center that comes out clean.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 20 minutes in the loaf pan. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  1. Once the bread has cooled, whisk together the confectioners' sugar and lemon juice.
  2. Start with 1 tablespoons of lemon juice and whisk well.
  3. You want the glaze to be thin enough to drizzle, but thick enough to set up on the bread. If the glaze is too thin, add more powdered sugar as needed.
  4. Using a spoon, drizzle the glaze on top of the bread and spread it around.
  5. The glaze should harden up the longer it sits.

This recipe was inspired by a small mom and pop bakery.  I use this recipe in my Power Oven Air Fryer but you can use a traditional oven as well.  If you do not have one .. why not?   Contact me for more information or click over to my Amazon affiliate link to purchase one of your own. This time of year my number one favorite thing about this appliance is you don’t have to use a lot of energy to bake this treat.
