I must say that lemon and blueberry are one of those combinations that just go together.  Whether it be in muffins, pancakes, cheesecake etc.  It is just a great winning combination.  Well today I have this great combination in a blueberry lemon bread and it includes a yummy glaze on the bread after it bakes!  Eat it, love it!

Grease and flour a loaf pan and set aside. Then whisk together some flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, cream together some butter with sugar with a electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, one at a time, to the butter mixture. Beating well after each addition of egg. Beat in the lemon peel.

Next, you add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Then alternately add half the milk with half of the remaining flour mixture, being sure to end with the flour. Toss the blueberries in about 1/2 tsp flour to coat. This will prevent them from sinking in your bread. Fold the blueberries into the batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake for 60 minutes until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. While the bread cooks, add some sugar to a saucepan along with some lemon juice. Bring to a boil and then remove from the heat.

Once the bread is cooked, pierce the top of the bread with a toothpick several times. Be sure to not go all the way through the loaf. Pour the hot lemon/sugar mixture over the bread. Allow to cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then remove from the pan and allow to cool completely.
