Suzee's Lemon Blueberry Tea Bread

Yummmmm :)
I was perusing my favorite blogs, and I came upon this recipe on For The Love Of Cooking. I added my Suzee twist, and undid the healthy things about the recipe, and popped into a loaf pan (no room here for muffin tins). It came out fabulously ;) Go ahead and make yourself some!

2/3 cup of white sugar

1 large lemon, zest and juice

2 cups of flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp baking soda

3/4 cup of low fat sour cream

2 jumbo eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

8 tbsp butter, melted and cooled

1 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries

White sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.

Mix the sugar with the lemon zest with a fork until the zest infuses with the sugar. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda with the sugar, mix well.

In a separate bowl combine the eggs, sour cream, cooled butter, vanilla and lemon juice, mix with a whisk until smooth and creamy. Combine the egg mixture with the flour mixture until well combined. Add 1 cup of blueberries and gently mix, making sure not to pop the blueberries.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of blueberries to the top of the loaf, and sprinkle top with white sugar pretty liberally.
