About: I am a teenager with a passion. After faith, family, and friends, my happy places are found in good books, food, music, and crocheting. Check out my Etsy page! (https://www.etsy.com/shop/VeronicasVale)

Homemade lemon curd has been a family favorite for many years, as well as this blueberry bread recipe. They are delicious together or separately. Yes, we have been known to eat the lemon curd with a spoon :) Enjoy!

Supplies

Bread:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Lemon Curd:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup softened butter

Step 1: Mix Wet Ingredients

Mix the eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla.

Step 2: Combine Dry Ingredients

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

Step 3: Add the Dry Ingredients and Sour Cream to Wet Ingredients

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients alternately with the sour cream. Mix until a nice batter is formed.

Step 4: Fold the Blueberries Into Batter

Gently fold the blueberries into the batter.

Step 5: Spoon Into Prepared Pan, Bake

Spoon the batter into a greased 9"x5" or 8"x8" baking pan. For the 9"x5" baking pan, bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for over an hour; until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Adjust the baking time for a 8"x8" pan.

Step 6: Make Lemon Curd

Combine the eggs, sugar, and lemon juice in a small saucepan, and whisk thoroughly. Turn the heat on low, and add the softened butter. Whisk continuously until the butter is melted and the mixture begins to thicken. ***It is important to 1) keep the heat low, and 2) whisk continuously, as the egg will form chunks otherwise!*** Remove from heat when the sauce will coat the back of a metal spoon.

Step 7: Enjoy!

Top the bread with lemon curd while they are both still warm or after they cool. It is delicious both ways :)

Store lemon curd in the refrigerator. Also good on lemon poppyseed muffins!

    Question 4 months ago on Step 7

    Thank you for the recipe. Is the softened butter in the lemon curd salted or unsalted?

    I used salted butter, but I'm guessing unsalted would work just as well. Happy baking!
