With the weather turning warmer, I had to make my favorite blueberry lemon loaf! OMG, this one is SO good. It is bursting with fresh blueberries and has a great lemon flavor! It is crisp and crumbly on the outside and so incredibly moist in the center. This loaf is great for breakfast, brunch, dessert, or even a mid day snack! When I make this loaf, it doesn't last long! My kids and family devour this one quick! I can't wait for you to try it. :):)
