This vegan lemon blueberry bread recipe is one of my new favorite breads. I love all sweet breads and have more than a few favorites, but this one is pretty fabulous!
I discovered this bread when I went to a coffee shop in Northampton (MA). It was a vegan lemon blueberry millet bread Christopher and I chowed down the last time we were there. Yum!
People are always surprised that I have tattoos and piercings. But I don’t know if it is the way I present myself to people or my age that makes my tattoos and piercings such a surprise to them.
I got my first tattoo at 40 years of age. And I remember wanting one when I was in my early 20s. I didn’t get it though because “good girls” didn’t get tattoos. I even thought to myself, “How will I feel when I am 40? Will I regret it?”
Well, 40 came and I realized that I wouldn’t regret it. So, I got a small tattoo on the base of my back. Since then, I have gotten three more tattoos. Two of them I got to commemorate the passing of, first, my sister Nancy and then, my mother.
My sister was a strong and brave soul so I got an autumn leaf on my left inner ankle for her. The one I got for my mother is on my right outer ankle. My mom had always wanted to get a tattoo, but she hated needles so much, she never would have gotten one. When she saw my first tattoo, she asked me why I hadn’t gotten a colorful ones instead of a black tribal one. So, the one I got for her is a pink/purple lily. I smile every time I look at it.
Regarding my piercings, I have the usual ear piercings; three in my left ear lobe and two in the other. I’ve always wanted to have a nose piercing so four or five years ago, I decided to get one. I have since gotten more piercings, two other nose piercings, a tragus piercing in my left ear and a tragus piercing – my most recent – in my right ear.
That’s why we were in Northampton. I love Lucky’s Tattoo & Piercing shop. Even though it’s a few hours away from home, I go there for all my piercing needs.
I recently shared this photo of my new haircut and leftover lobster. Because why not. Doesn’t everyone get her hair cut before she eats lobster? For example, here you can see the piercing in my left tragus and the 3 piercings in my nose.
Oh, and delicious lobster meat ready to be consumed by moi! Also in this photo, you will see all my food photography dishes in the background.
But, enough of all this gibber-gabber!
On to the Vegan Lemon Blueberry Bread Recipe
We have some blueberries, lemon, baking powder, vanilla, a mixture of flour and almond milk!
I preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a bread pan with parchment paper.
After that, I place all the dry ingredients in the bowl, add the wet ingredients and blueberries and mix it all together with my spatula. Also, I pour the batter in the pan.
I bake the lemon blueberry bread for 1 hour.
DING Means Done
I let the lemon blueberry bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes before I take it out and place it on a wire rack.
Time to cut some pieces and eat it!!
It’s so moist and delicious!
I plate a piece.
It doesn’t look big enough, so here are two pieces together.
So, I hope you enjoyed this recipe!
