Super easy Lemon Blueberry Quick Bread!

This lemon blueberry bread is, in fact, super easy. A big reason for that is because you use a cake mix! Of course, there are a few special additions that make this recipe more flavorful and very moist.

But really, this is a yummy, easy cake in loaf form. And that’s okay. Aren’t most quick breads basically cakes?

That’s right people, only 6 ingredients needed for this treat! Well, then you’ll need two more simple ingredients for the glaze, which really finishes off the bread nicely. Just some powdered sugar and lemon juice. I definitely recommend it.

easy lemon blueberry bread experiment

This recipe immediately reminded me of the cake mix tricks I learned a while back, so I decided to experiment a little bit.

I made one loaf with oil and one with melted butter. There was actually a noticeable difference! I like the melted butter version better. The lemon flavor is more pronounced and the bread is slightly more dense, but still moist. I would not have guessed about the better lemon flavor, but I wasn’t the only one that noticed it!

You can tell from this picture that the batter with the melted butter is thicker than the batter with the oil. Butter is always best, right? Well, like I said, I do prefer the butter in this recipe. But this cake/bread is still great with the oil, so you can use whichever you prefer.

Gently fold in those blueberries. If you over mix, the blueberries may start to streak into your batter and your bread will be more of a gray or greenish color.

easy lemon blueberry bundt cake

I even tried it out as a bundt cake. Worked out pretty great. I will admit that the blueberries sink a bit, but for how easy and moist this cake is, it didn’t bother me much. By the way, every time I use this bundt pan I am amazed at how easily the cake just falls right out of the pan. Very nice.

  1. You can prevent blueberries especially frozen ones) from sinking by shaking them in flour before adding them to the batter.
