lemon blueberry bread

Happy 4th today!  It's one of those funny holidays in our home where all around us everyone goes all out in celebrating but being married to an Englishman he tends to roll his eyes and remind us the Independence Day is the day they decided to get rid of us Americans.  Either way you look at it, it was meant to be.  Here's a little recipe that sort of goes with the holiday.  It's blueberry season!  I keep finding them on sale and when my kids don't snack on them first I love to make lemon blueberry bread.  It's so good for a snack, treat, or even breakfast.  It's really good egg-free if you need that option.

Lemon Blueberry Bread
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c butter softened
3/4 c sugar
1 egg (optional)
1/1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbs. lemon zest
1/2 c milk
1 1/2 c fresh or frozen blueberries (tossed in 1 Tbs. flour)
1 Tbs. sugar for sprinking

First combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Set aside and in another bowl combine butter and sugar.  Add egg (if desired), vanilla. lemon zest, and milk (I used powdered milk).  Combine with flour mixture and them fold in blueberries.  Sprinkle the top with sugar.  Bake at 350 for 55 minutes.
