I got this in my Home Economics class! It’s my and my friend Ann’s first recipe we did together. The worst thing that kept on happening was when we burnt the lemon glaze! It is originally a blueberry muffin recipe, but the bread/muffins are good any way you bake it! Lemonade fits perfectly with this recipe!
Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl until combined.
Whisk egg in a second medium bowl until well combined and light-colored, about 20 seconds. Add sugar and whisk vigorously until thick and homogenous, about 30 seconds; add melted butter in 2 or 3 additions, whisking to combine after each addition. Add sour cream in 2 additions, whisking just to combine.
Add blueberries to the dry ingredients and gently toss just to combine. Add sour cream mixture and fold with a rubber spatula until the batter comes together and the berries are evenly distributed, 25 to 30 seconds. Small spots of flour may remain, and the batter will be thick. Don’t overmix.
Using a large spoon sprayed with nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking, spread the batter evenly into the greased loaf pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until the top is light brown and a toothpick or skewer inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Rotate the pan from front to back halfway through the baking time. Let cool for 5 minutes.
While bread is cooling, mix 1/2 cup sugar and lemon zest together in a small bowl. Set aside.
Bring lemon juice and remaining 1/4 cup sugar to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir to dissolve the sugar and simmer until the mixture is thick and syrupy and reduced to about 1/4 cup. Brush the top of the bread with glaze, then sprinkle the lemon sugar onto the glaze.

The quality of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal bread , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as clear bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it yesterday , then clear it off the next day.
