The Players!


In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, 
baking soda and salt and set aside.

Cream sugar and butter until fluffy, and 
then add one egg at a time until combined. 

 



Stir in sour cream vanilla, lemon zest and two tablespoons of lemon juice.    




Begin adding in the dry ingredients a little at a time (so that you don’t get a face full of flour!) until thoroughly combined.  



Fold in the blueberries. 





Grease loaf pan.  Pour batter into the greased loaf pan and bake for one hour or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. 



Let rest for about 10 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool.



In a small bowl mix three tablespoons of lemon juice into 1 cup of powdered sugar to max the glaze.  While bread is still a little warm, drizzle as much or as little glaze that you want all over the bread.
