Lemon Blueberry Poppy Seed Bread

Tammy Raynes


I'm a blueberry lover and lemon seems to go so well with it. This recipe came from a dear friend of mine that has passed away now.

Whenever I make it I always think about her and our friendship we had together.

A quick Tip for this bread: To help keep topping intact when removing loaf from pan, place tin foil over top.
