Jean’s blueberry quickbread

If you want to healthy this one up a bit, you can substitute some whole wheat flour for part of the white, but the flavors are so delicate and sweet in this quickbread that I would just recommend making it with unbleached white flour and planning on it not being 100% healthy!

Note that if you use frozen blueberries, your bread won’t come out clean…it’ll be largely stained blue. Keep that in mind if presentation is really important :-)

Jean’s Blueberry Quickbread

1-3/4 c flour
2/3 c sugar
2 t baking powder
2t lemon peel
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt

1-1/2 c blueberries, unthawed if frozen

8 oz lemon yogurt, or plain yogurt and a splash of lemon juice
1 large egg
2 T oil

Mix flour through salt together in a large bowl. Gently fold in the blueberries. Beat yogurt through oil together and add to dry ingredients, stirring gently until just moistened. Spoon into a greased loaf pan, and sprinkle the top with 1T sugar for decoration if desired. Bake for 50 min at 375. Let cool for 5 minutes, and then remove from the pan to cool.
