Lemon Blueberry Bread

I have been making different muffins so I thought of trying a bread for a change. I saw this recipe in Aparna's blog. I wanted to try it immediately. The bread was very tasty with the lemon flavour. Here is the link to the original recipe. I added some grated apples to the batter. As I didn't have slivered almonds I topped the bread with streusel topping.


-1 3/4 cup flour
-3/4 cup sugar
-2 tsps baking powder
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 egg
-1 cup milk
-1/4 cup vegetable oil
-1/2 tsp vanilla
-finely grated zest of 1 lemon
-2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
-1 cup of dried blueberries
-1/4 cup grated apple


1.Preheat oven to 350F. Spray Pam and apply flour a 9 ¼ x 5-inch loaf pan.
2. Mix all the dry ingredients flour,baking powder,sugar,salt,grated zest of lemon in a bowl.
3.Whisk the egg,vanilla essence,lemon juice and milk in another bowl
4.Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredient in the well and blend it with a hand blender until it becomes a smooth batter.
5.Toss the blueberries with flour. Fold the blueberries and grated apple in the batter.
6. Pour the batter in the loaf pan.
7.Top the batter with streusel topping. Streusel topping is a mixture of flour,sugar and room temperature butter. Combine 2 tablespoons flour, 5 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons butter with fork until mixture resembles course crumbs. Sprinkle over batter.
8.Bake the bread for 50-55 minutes. Test if it is baked by inserting a knife in
the center of the bread. The knife should come out clean.
