Quick sweet breads like this are one of my favorite breakfasts. I like to make them the day before and then in the morning there is a delicious homemade breakfast that the whole family enjoys, and all I have to do is slice it! Sometimes I will double the recipe and put one loaf in the freezer for an easy breakfast another day.

We bought a huge container of blueberries and after two days of binge eating them, we were ready to enjoy them in a new way. The combination of lemon and blueberry is one of my favorites! This bread has such bright, fresh flavor, and the texture is moist and dense. The lemony glaze drizzled on top really pumps up the lemon flavor and adds just enough sweetness that it feels quite decadent. My kids were so excited to be eating “dessert” for breakfast, haha!

With or without the glaze, this bread is a treat! You can use fresh or frozen berries, just remember to keep them frozen if you go that route. No thawing first or you will end up with purple bread :)

What are some of your favorite ways to eat blueberries?

    I pinned it already and stumbled it! On my to make list.

    Do you think this would be good as Texas size muffins?

    This looks delicious, but – I’m just not a lemon lover. I do love the blueberries, and was wondering if you could use milk instead of the lemon juice? Thanks, Stephanie!

    • says

      Hi Debbie! Yes, just sub the lemon juice for milk or buttermilk and leave out the lemon zest. Hope you enjoy the bread!

    I didn’t even know Lemon Blueberry Bread was a thing!! Of course now I have to try it :) It looks super delicious — moist and fresh. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!

  7. says

    Lemon and blueberry is probably one of my favorite flavor combinations, and your bread looks delicious! I would love a piece of it this morning with my coffee!

  8. says

    This looks like a delicious summer treat! I love combining blueberries and lemon!

  9. says

    I love blueberries in cakes. I like how the berry stays warm and soft inside and protected by the outer layer. I have done muffins with blueberries and now need to try this amazing cake!

  10. says

    Whoa, mama! This looks amazing! That drizzle! Wow! Another trick to try is to coat your frozen blueberries in flour so they don’t sink to the bottom of the bread as it bakes.

  11. says

    Those blueberries look gorgeous !! I love lemon and blueberries together. So perfect.

  12. Theresa says

    making this now and a little concerned. I’m already past 55 minutes and still gooey on top but getting browner than I would like.

    • says

      Try covering with foil and continue baking until a tester comes out clean. Everyone’s ovens are a little different, but the foil should help!

  13. Aliea says

    Was wondering if you could use frozen blueberry in place of fresh blueberry

  14. flora says

    I found this on pint rest and actually made this today! It was Delicious! !! The only issue I came across was that my glaze wasn’t forming so I added more lemon juice and a bit water. It was think and had to spread on top with a butter knife So I didn’t get the gooey effect. Does anyone know what I did wrong ? !

    • says

      Sounds like you just didn’t add quite enough liquid. You can make it however thin or thick you like by adjusting the amount of liquid added. I hope you enjoyed the bread!

  15. says

    I love lemon and this bread looks divine! Is there any substitution for the greek yogurt?

  16. Robyn Kelley says

    i noticed in the photo that your blueberries sank to the bottom. You can prevent this by mixing the berries with a tablespoon of flour. This works for any addition to quick breads or muffins — fruit, chocolate chips, nuts. This helps the fruit, etc. to evenly distribute in your bread.


  1. […] I love making breakfast for the family on Sunday morning but things have been a little hectic around here the past few months and I haven’t had the time or energy to make a big Sunday breakfast in a long time. But when I was exploring Pinterest the other day I came across a recipe from Back for Seconds for lemon blueberry bread. I already the ingredients so on Saturday night I decided to give it a try and let me say it’s a good as it looks! It’s super moist and not too sweet which makes it perfect for breakfast. It was great to be able to sit down with my coffee and have something other than cereal or oatmeal without trashing my kitchen first thing in the morning. Head over to Back for Seconds to get the recipe! […]
