You’ll probably of guessed that lemon and blueberries have become a favourite of mine to bake with this year.
I honestly hadn’t realised until recently how many of my bakes have included lemons or blueberries OR both! I think lemon and blueberry is a great combo and I want to share as many ways of using them both (wether that’s together or separately) as possible. I just hope you aren’t getting bored haha.
Anyway, today’s recipe is a little different to anything I’ve made before. I was scrolling through Pinterest when a picture of today’s recipe caught my eye. It looked delicious so when I clicked on the link and saw how easy the recipe was, I just had to give it a try myself (credit: https://bakerbettie.com/blueberry-lemon-sour-cream-bread/).
It’s a little different to anything I’ve baked here on my blog before because – one, it’s using sour cream which I don’t think I’ve ever used in a sweet bake before and two, it’s actually classed as a bread not a cake. I just thought it sounded and looked amazing so after trailing it out myself, I’m here sharing the recipe with you guys today!

That’s your Lemon & Blueberry Bread prepared, baked and ready to be demolished.
This cake is up there with one of the moistest cakes I’ve ever made. It melts away in your mouth beautifully. I’m Obsessed.
In the recipe I found, it did add a lemon glaze but to be perfectly honest with you, I didn’t find mine needed it. I thought it looked and tasted perfect on its own. That being said, if you’d like to add some extra sweetness by adding a glaze, go ahead and add!
I really think you guys will love this. So if you do end up making it yourself, let me know your thoughts. Have I turned you lemon and blueberry mad?
Sending you all tons of love & hugs as always,
Yummy! My aunt used to make really yummy blueberry lemon muffins and this reminds me of that! She made it a lot when blueberries were in season! Pinning for later! Thanks for sharing x
