Blueberry Loaf coated with Glazed Lemon :)


Hi friends :)

I got bored by seeing plain bread sometimes and want to add some fruits to it rather than adding tutti fruity to the bread. Hmmm I got 1 pint of Blueberries and was wondering what to do with it.It is so cute smaller ones than grapes/cherry size :) One day I was watching TV that is food TV :) It showed me Blueberry loaf with lemon flavor.I do love lemons.:) It strikes  in my mind to bake it :) Finally baked it and wow what an awesome taste it looks alike cake like bread size.. Do you remember Wonder Cake since childhood memories.Its same alike sweet mini cute cakes like bread size with lots of different flavors  :) Loved it too. I missed it lots. So baked it and came out with an aromatic lemon flavor and glazed lemon flavor on the top of the loaf:) Here is the recipe as below. :)

Enjoy it :)
