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.

timesaving tips to streamline recipes

  • 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.

Hi Raquel, I recently found your blog and love all the recipes I've seen so far. I DO HAVE A REQUEST though: The "print" function makes the recipe so tiny, I guess, for a recipe card; but many of us use full page recipes and it's so much work to resize everything. Next time you do an upgrade, would you look into adding the printing widget that offer a full-page or 5x7 and 4x6 recipe card versions from which to choose? Thanks so much and cook on!

HI.... well, isn't that embarrassing! I'm so sorry... I went back again to check settings and see if I did something wrong and the printer settings had been set to 60% scale, so my preview was skewing the results.... PLEASE REMOVE COMMENT! my apologies.
