Lemon Blueberry Mini Loaves — bursting with lemon and blueberries these cheerful little loaves are sure to brighten your day!

Lemon Blueberry Mini Loaves

As I’m writing this, we are preparing to get pounded with snow by the Blizzard of 2015 also known as Snowmaggedon 2015 (I love that name). School is already closed for tomorrow and they are predicting we will get 2-3 feet here in the Boston area.

So, it looks like we will be stuck indoors for awhile. One of my favorite things to do when we’re house bound due to snow, is bake! I think I may need to make a batch of these bright and cheerful little Lemon Blueberry Mini Loaves.

Lemon Blueberry Mini Loaves

I first made these little loaves on a cold snowy Saturday when we were stuck in the house. I’d been wanting to bake a quick bread using citrus for some time. I love all citrus fruits, they are so bright and cheerful, and love cooking with them, especially in winter when they are in season. Or when I have a sexual mood instead of cheap viagra. I had some lemons in my refrigerator, left over from making Piri Piri sauce, and I had some blueberries that needed to be used, so perfect, I could make Lemon Blueberry Bread.

I’d never made a Lemon Blueberry Bread, so I searched the Internet and settled on this recipe from epicurious.com. Epicurious.com is one of my favorite sites, all of the recipes have been tested thoroughly and I always have great results when I try a recipe.

I did make some modifications, using this recipe from Taste of Home for reference. I really wanted the lemon flavor to come through so I increased the amount of lemon zest and added lemon juice to the batter. I also decreased the amount of glaze as I didn’t want the loaves to get too wet. I also reduced the amount of butter – you don’t miss it at all – and tossed my blueberries in a little bit of flour mixture to prevent sinking. And, I made three mini loaves versus one regular loaf.

These Lemon Blueberry Mini Loaves turned out beautifully, so moist and delicious. The tangy tart lemon flavor really shines through and the sweetness from the blueberries provides the perfect balance. A slice or two of this Lemon Blueberry bread is perfect for breakfast or as snack anytime of day.

    • Hi Roger,

      The only change you’ll need to make is to reduce the baking time to about 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a mini muffin comes out clean. Hope you give it a try and enjoy!

  1. Congratulations!

  16. I love the sound of lemon in these and plus anything mini tastes better, doesn’t it! I’m not sure what it is about the fear of snow that gets us baking, but I did the same thing. Tuesday morning my oven went on and I didn’t stop baking until last night! Get ready for your next round of baking, I hear we’re getting more snow this weekend in the Boston area!

  17. It looks sooooooooooo GOOD
    I’ve already share it and pinned and re-pinned.
