I enter our local Farm Fair Culinary Competition on the quest for the coveted Silver Bowl Grand Prize. I have placed over the years with Blue Ribbons etc. but the Silver Bowl escaped me until last year. I finally won it with Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake that I will be posting. The Silver Bowl can not be won unless blueberries are the main ingredient. This was the second runner up in the Bread Category for the 2010 Competition.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Lemon and blueberries go together like peas and carrots! This lemon blueberry bread is so easy to make. There is just the right amount of blueberries to balance the lemon. You get a bite of blueberries in every bite of this tender bread. The sugary glaze on top hardens slightly and gives the bread a little crunch. Enjoy this for breakfast, a snack, or even a dessert.
