I like to make this for a light dessert or brunch item. I must have something to eat when I watch my food challenge shows at night or else I get real hungry.

Does that happen to you?

You can make it with frozen blueberries, but since I can usually get fresh ones, it use them.

  • You can bake this ahead of time. Just wrap the loaf (after cooling) tightly in plastic wrap and store at room temperature up to 4 days or refrigerate up to 10 days.
  • No fresh blueberries? No problem, you can use frozen too!
  • You can use bottled lemon juice, but I highly recommend using real lemons if you can get them.
