Blueberry Season is A Great Time to Make This Recipe

In the summer, when blueberries are in season, I make a few of these loaves and freeze them. When freezing, wrap the loaves separately in parchment paper before placing them in freezer bags. Blueberry Lemon Loaf can be frozen for up to 3 months. Let thaw at room temperature before slicing.

Although the recipe calls for fresh blueberries, frozen blueberries can be used as well. When using frozen blueberries, toss them in a tablespoon of flour to coat them before folding them into the batter. Coating the blueberries with flour helps to distribute them more evenly into the batter, and they won’t sink to the bottom of the loaf.

How To Store Blueberry Lemon Loaf

Blueberry Lemon Loaf should be kept at room temperature in an air-tight container. It will keep up to three days.

The loaf can also be frozen either whole or in slices. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in a freezer bag or air-tight container before freezing.

Slicing the loaf before freezing makes it easy to grab a slice on the go for lunches. It will thaw in less than a couple of hours at room temperature, making it great for a last-minute addition to a lunch bag for a morning pick-me-up.
