Lemon Blueberry Quick Bread

One of the things I like about living in Alaska, is all the blueberry picking we get to do in late summer/early fall. Unfortunately, we had a rather poor summer last year, so blueberries were not that plentiful in my area. Thus, in order to make this quick bread, I had to break down and purchase blueberries from my local grocery store. 😦

I find that the flavor combination of blueberry and lemon go very well together, and this recipe really showcases that. I decided to post a picture of the bread minus the glaze, because I like the look of all the blueberries peaking and oozing out of the top and sides. 🙂
