Lemon Blueberry Muffin Bread

Good morning.

This is for those in need of a last minute Mother’s Day brunch recipe! This breakfast bread that tastes exactly like a giant blueberry muffin. And who doesn’t like a giant muffin?! No one. It’s so good slathered with salted butter that I can’t even stand it.

Happy early Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there! This has been the longest I’ve ever gone in my life without seeing my mom and I’m so excited to see her soon at the wedding!!

You can get this recipe over at PBS Food. Enjoy!

    I recently made a blueberry muffin-top tasting bread with cream cheese in it – but yours has me beat in the blueberry department. It’s stuffed to the max and I love it!

    I’m a huge fan of blueberry lemon muffins and just saw my lemon extract yesterday which reminded me i needed to make some. Love the idea of making it into a loaf. I bet this makes awesome French Toast!

    Salted butter is just… butter. Yes? (I mean, I know you can also buy unsalted butter, but salted is the default.)

      Actually unsalted butter is the default in recipes. Different salted butters have different salt content. Unsalted butter lets the recipe itself can control the salt.

        I’m not referring to the butter used in baking, but the butter “slathered” on it afterwards. For years and years, unsalted butter was actually pretty hard to find (even though obviously it’s the more natural state) and the default “table” butter, if you will, has always been salted. I’ve never heard anyone specify spreading something with salted butter, or that the idea of having salted butter with something makes their mouth water. It just sounded a little odd when Jenna mentioned it, and more so when another commenter commented on it… it makes it sound like some trendy new gourmet thing like salted caramels.

    I made this yesterday, it was just too yummy looking and perfect since my mom is in town visiting. I had to use frozen blueberries unfortunately, but it still turned out great. Perfect amount of lemon and the texture is just like a muffin. Mine looks almost like the picture too.

    Hi Jenna,

    Sad to say We never met by my mom the day of mothers day. So I plan to have something for her after my OJT, something favorite of my mom. Exactly blueberry is her favorite flavor to any food. Actually in ice cream, cupcake, candy and drinks.

    I don’t know if I can do this because I don’t have idea to bake. But I will do this for my mom. Best Effort!

    Jenna do you have other recipes for blueberry? So I can do that for my mom.

    Thank you so much Jenna for sharing this recipe. I hope you can share more recipes about Blueberry.

    Thanks a lot!

    I just made this and followed directoons to the T but it didnt turn out:-( the batter was too thick and bread dry. What could be the problem? I did use frozen blueberries…

    Hi Jenna – This looks tasty! I write for ParentMap.com and would love to include this idea in a roundup article of Farmer’s Market Recipes. We would describe the recipe in our own words, and link back/credit your site and use one image. Would you be OK with this?
