Lemon Blueberry Loaf

Thought i would share this recipe which has become a favourite....super yummy and I got to use fresh blueberries from my MIL garden and lemons from our tree.

I'm always to eagar to eat it straight away then to ice it.  I would if i was serving it up for
visitors :-)

Here is the recipe:


125g butter
1 lemon, finely grated zest
2 eggs
1 1/2cups SR flour
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup blueberries

100g icing sugar
1 tsp butter, melted
1 Tbsp strained lemon juice

Preheat oven to 180C

Grease and line a 23cm loaf tin

Cream butter and sugar, add zest and beat in the eggs one at a time.
Stir in the flour and lemon juice and fold until combined.  Gently fold in blueberries.
Spoon mixture into tin and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until cooked through.
Cool loaf in tin for 10 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool.
Combine icing sugar, butter, and lemon juice, stir until smooth and runny.  Spread icing
over cold loaf
