Notes

-Mix the blueberries with flour before adding it to the batter. This is to ensure that the berries don’t sink to the bottom of the bread

-Don’t skip the lemon zest – Its highly recommended

-Since this bread contains fresh blueberries I recommend refrigeration. Just heat the slice for about 8-9 seconds in the microwave before enjoy it
