This Blueberry Lemon Bread is super moist, easy to make, and topped with a delicious lemon glaze. Perfect for breakfast or dessert!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 1 cup sugar 200g

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup plain 0% Greek yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • juice of 1 lemon

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 188g

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • zest of 2 lemons or 3, if you like things tangy!

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries *see post above for tips on using frozen blueberries

  • Cream Cheese Layer
  • 4 oz cream cheese 1/2 package

  • 1/4 cup sugar 50g

  • 1 egg white

  • Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered icing sugar

  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease an 8×4″ (or 9×5″ — see note above) loaf pan (I recommend glass or silicone as it will darken more quickly in a non stick pan).
  • In a large bowl whisk together oil and sugar. Add eggs, yogurt, vanilla and juice and whisk until smooth.
  • Add flour, baking powder, salt and lemon zest and stir just until combined. Fold in blueberries.
  • Make the cream cheese layer: in a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg white with an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Pour ⅔ of your bread batter into prepared loaf pan. Top with all of cream cheese mixture and spread evenly. Top with remaining ⅓ bread batter and smooth the top.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 60-70 minutes, covering loosely with foil after 30 minutes or when top is golden, until a toothpick in the bread comes out clean or with moist crumbs. Note that the cream cheese will set as it cools.
  • Cool to room temperature before slicing and serving. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.
  • Glaze
  • Gradually stir lemon juice into powdered until desired consistency is reached — you may not need all of the lemon juice!
  • Drizzle over loaf before serving.
