You'll love this zesty lemon quick bread! It's the perfect treat for a Sunday morning. When blueberries are out of season you can use frozen blueberries instead.

Yield

one 8 x 4 inch loaf (12 servings)

Ingredients

1 cup blueberries, rinsed and drained
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/3 cup butter or margarine, room temperature

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Lightly grease two 8 x 4-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

Dredge the blueberries in 2 teaspoons flour; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Mix in the lemon zest. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.

Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture alternately with the milk. Fold in the blueberries. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Allow bread to cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.
