I know banana bread is trending right now but since we're going into spring I thought it would be a perfect time to revisit and revamp this Blueberry Lemon Loaf! There's just something about lemon cake that makes me so happy. This recipe has been on my blog for some time now and definitely has more of a subtle lemon taste. If you want a stronger lemon taste, you could also use lemon extract (not oil) instead of lemon juice/zest.
I love adding blueberries on top of this lemon loaf, but you can use raspberries or strawberries as well! Just make sure to drain the liquid from them really well if you're using frozen so it it not watery. Alternatively you can leave off the fruit completely, add a tablespoon of poppy seeds and get a lemon poppy seed loaf instead.
If you are adding frozen blueberries, save some of the blueberry juice that has been drained off to create a hot pink glaze. Of course this is optional!
