I am a blueberry addict! Living in Maine, there are blueberries everywhere and I am ready to pick them anytime! Lemon and blueberries go so well together, the sweet and tart combination is out of this world! Since summer is almost here, I am loving the quick and delicious recipes. I want to spend more time outside in the sun than in my kitchen. This quick bread is amazing, made with yogurt, it is moist and delicious. I wish that I had baked two loaves because this one disappeared quickly. You will love the smell of this bread baking in the oven, it is heavenly!!
Use a 9×5 inch loaf pan. Top with more blueberries!
