Lemon Blueberry Bread Recipe Quick with Bisquick and Cream Cheese

Lemon Blueberry Bread Recipe is my go-to blueberry quick bread.  This is a moist lemon infused bread with blueberries and it makes a delicious and simple blueberry bread.  Everyone loves this blueberry bread and best of all, this yummy quick bread uses Bisquick.  Actually, this recipe has two shortcuts. Bisquick makes the bread fast to make and cream cheese gives it a rich flavor!  So, I keep these pantry ingredients on hand to whip up this up recipe any time.

Favorite easy blueberry recipes

Did you know that blueberries give you the most bang for your buck with nutrition?  I have two favorite easy blueberry recipes and both recipes are in my fabulous (you must read) cookbook, Too Hot in the Kitchen: Secrets to Sizzle at any Age.  My other favorite dessert is my spectacular  White Chocolate Blueberry Bundt Cake.  Who doesn’t love white chocolate and combined with blueberries, it’s pure indulgence.  These two recipes feature blueberries and truly are  special.  If you like blueberries, try the lemon blueberry bread first as it is the easiest.  Then, the white chocolate cake for ultimate decadence.   You’ll find both these recipes in my Too Hot in the Kitchen recipe for you to enjoy and  make easily.

This small jewel packs a powerful punch of antioxidants and you can include them in your morning cereal easily.  Also, toss blueberries in a salad or add to your favorite dessert recipe.  Blue/purple fruits and vegetables such as blackberries, blueberries, plums, grapes, raisins, and eggplant have shown to slow the aging process from the inside out.  They help with memory protection and reducing the risk of some cancers. So, who would think these two delcious berry desserts could even be good for you!


Blueberries burst with flavor and nutrition!

Spicy Advice: Frozen blueberries work well too but do not thaw before using because they will turn mushy.

My Lemon Blueberry Bread recipe is truly wonderful but if you liked it, then I can’t wait until you try my Berry Good Oatmeal Cookie dessert!  I guess you know by now that I adore recipes with blueberries! Have fun during blueberry season with the recipes but luckily nowadays you can find blueberries year round.
