I think everyone loves a good piece of Blueberry Bread, if you don’t you are crazy! With all my trips to the Farmers Market I have had an abundance of fresh blueberries and knew I needed to whip together some bread. I love the fact that this bread is made with yogurt and the lemon zest gives it such a bright flavor. This bread is not super sweet which I like, it mainly gets it sweetness from the berries. If you want it sweeter I suggest adding more sugar or use vanilla yogurt- I used plain Greek yogurt. The best way to eat this bread is warm smeared with butter and drizzled with honey- pure heaven I tell you!
