Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Bread – Homemade moist lemon bread with fresh blueberries, topped with a lemon glaze. Made with Greek yogurt as a healthy choice. Great quick bread to serve in the summer.
This bread blew me away. I didn’t know a quick bread could be so moist. It’s delectable and perfect for breakfast, brunch or dessert.
Heck. I even enjoyed it for lunch. Don’t tell anyone I threw away my sandwich for a slice of this. Please…. I won’t tell your secrets. My kids really can’t find out that mom is willing to throw out her lunch for dessert.
That will just create chaos for all of us. You know what I’m saying? No more ‘Wait until tonight for snack.’ No. I’ll find 29 (1 bite taken) sandwiches in the trash. And Daddy will not be happy at all! Food is not supposed to be wasted after all. So please don’t tell. I told you lots of chaos.
I made this bread one evening. Let it cool. And packed it away to photograph the next day. I started pulling props out and arranging things. Then I took the loaf out of the pan. Surprise! Someone had decided to go ahead and cut off a slice.
Um….ahem! You can’t live in a blogger’s house and just eat food without asking.
One question always needs asked first:
“Did you get to photograph this yet?” If the answer is no back FAR, FAR away.
Just a sidenote. No one got harmed in anyway during the creating of this bread. But someone did get a good talking to.
Til we meet and eat again,
