Simple Blueberry Lemon Bread

1 c. blueberries, rinsed and drained
2 tsp. flour
1 c. white sugar
1/3 c. butter, softened
2 eggs
2 tsp. grated lemon zest
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 c. milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a loaf pan.

Dredge the blueberries in  tsp. flour; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Mix in the lemon zest. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.

Stir the flour mixture into egg mixture alternately with the milk. Fold in the blueberries. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Allow bread to cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Optional glaze (highly recommended!): Blend 1 Tbsp. lemon juice with 2 Tbsp. sugar; brush on hot loaf and return to oven for five minutes. This forms a pretty, crispy coating and adds a nice little zing of lemon!
