Blueberry, Lemon and Sour Cream Bread

Blueberry, Lemon, Sour Cream Bread

It was a Wednesday afternoon. Jerry was at work. Thought I would spend the day cooking.

I grew up eating blueberry muffins. I think my mom made them as a bread with every meal. Until recently, I didn’t think of blueberry bread as a dessert.

I made myself a cup of tea and had a slice of Blueberry, Lemon and Sour Cream Bread, with a smile I might add.
