Lemon Blueberry Bread

This bread tastes amazing. I came home from work last night and the house smelled of something so delicious; I found my mom was making lemon blueberry bread. She was so excited; this was the first recipe she came up with all on her own. I was so proud of her; she never even called me once asking about measurements or any other baking questions.

The strudel crumb topping gives this bread a great crunch on the top layer, with just the right sweetness. The bread also is complimented by the lemon that wakes up your taste buds. Enjoy this bread with coffee as your morning breakfast. Berries are the best thing you can eat for breakfast, and this is a good and tasty way to get them. 🙂

Everyone must try this bread; trust me, you won’t want to stop eating it.

Enjoy!
