I just wanted a lemon.
I found myself at the grocery store faced with limited options in the lemon department. It was either going to be one of those plastic squeeze lemons or a 2 lb. bag of lemons. I was feeling fast and loose, so I bought the 2 lb. bag.
Which brings us to the point – I’ve prepared more lemony things, including Lemon Blueberry Muffin Bread…
Lemon and blueberry together just make sense. They’re like peanut butter and jelly, or puppy dogs and tennis balls. I’ve found a few great lemon-blueberry recipes this year on Pinterest. Included among them are Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce, Lemon Blueberry Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, and this recipe for Lemon Blueberry Muffin Bread.
Not a huge time commitment – just do it. Especially great if you’ve got one pesky lemon and a freezer full of blueberries as I often do.
Why let a lemon go to waste when you could instead funnel it into a carbalicious treat that’s actually not obscenely sweet. It’s just sweet enough that the top turns into a slightly sticky crust.
Bring it to work and share it like I did – or make it for brunch this weekend! Or hold off for a week, and make it for Mother’s Day. Suit yourself!
