Lemon Blueberry Quick Bread

Hey!  I'm reposting my recipe for Lemon Blueberry Quick Bread from last Thanksgiving ... I used dried blueberries, but cranberries, raisins, ... any dried fruit would work fine.  I'm linking to Sunday Favorites so don't forget to click through to see all the other partiers!  Thanks to our hostess!

Original Post:  November, 2010

I baked this cute loaf of bread to snack on the day after thanksgiving ... when we have Turkey Ala King!  I adjusted the recipe on the package of the Nordicware Turkey pan and have included it in this post.   I used blueberries that I dried last summer instead of dried cranberries, too!  Yummy!

Lemon Blueberry Quick Bread

1/3 cup butter flavor shortening
¼ cup whipped cream cheese
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
3 T lemon juice
2 drops lemon oil extract
1 ¼ cups flour
¾ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup dried blueberries

Whip the shortening, cream cheese, sugar, eggs, lemon juice and extract until creamy. Sift the flour together with the baking powder and salt and add this alternately with the milk and continue whipping until well blended. Fold in the blueberries and bake at 350 degrees for 40 – 50 minutes until a pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes before inverting the bread.


  1. OK, I have all the ingredients...I am about to make it...right now. Will let you know. :)
    Thanks for reposting this; I missed it the first time.

  2. o, and I don't have a cute little pan like yours..bwaaaaaa
    Maybe it will work in a loaf pan. :)

  3. How cute is that loaf. Sounds delicious. I am just ordering boxes of blueberries next week. This may be a good way to start out. I think it would work with fresh berries too wouldn't it?

  4. I have never seen bread shaped like that ever before!!! How CUTE!

  5. I made your quick bread, with a few changes, and may I just say...O HONEY....it is really a great recipe. I didn;t have blueberries so used another fruit..I will post it soon and link the recipe right back to you. Will try to let you know when it will post.
    Thanks again for a really great recipe.

  6. HI Debbie...

    Mmmm...Lemon Blueberry quick bread sounds soooo yummy, my friend! I love that you used your turkey pan for the bread...too cute! I'll have to give your recipe a try. Thanks so much for sharing it with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party this week!

    Warmest summery wishes,

    PS...so sorry that I'm so late in coming by this week!

  7. Saw BJ's write-up Debbie and thought I'd better stop by! I've bookmarked this recipe and will try it soon. Cute turkey pan, love it:@)

  8. Hopped over from BJs blog and just had to follow. Love this recipe. I live in Oregon and it's blueberry season. Just picked and froze 11 pounds. Only about 20 more to pick to last through the winter. Organic for only $1.50 a pound. *sigh*

    See you again and happy baking. :)
