Mix the wet and dry ingredients:

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, starting and

ending with the flour mixture. Stir until everything is well mixed.

Prepare the blueberries:

Mix the blueberries with 1 tablespoon of flour. This prevents the berries from sinking to the bottom of

the bread while baking.Add the blueberries:

Gently add the smashed blueberries to the batter. Be careful not to over mix.

Baking:

Pour the dough into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a

toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.

Fresh:

Allow the bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool

completely.Make the lemon glaze:

While the bread is cooling, stir together the powdered sugar and lemon juice to make the glaze.

Adjust the consistency with more lemon juice or powdered sugar as needed.

Glaze and Serve:

Once the bread has cooled completely, drizzle the lemon glaze over it. Garnish with additional lemon

zest if desired. Allow the glaze to set before cutting and serving.Notes:

Frozen Blueberries: If using frozen blueberries, do not thaw them before adding them to the batter.

Coat them in flour like you would fresh berries.

days or refrigerated for longer freshness. It also freezes well.
