Blackberry Lemon Bread

This ultra moist blackberry lemon bread is bursting with fresh blackberry and tart lemon. It has a swirl of blackberry running through the loaf and a sweet lemon glaze.

rub the lemon zest into the sugar to release the lemon oils and give the bread extra lemon flavor,

Combine the sugar, lemon zest, eggs, yogurt, vanilla extract and extra lemon oil.

Fold the flour in with a spatula then drizzle the oil in slowly. All purpose flour works just fine in this recipe.

Stir blackberry jam into 1/2 cup of the batter then fold fresh blackberries in the rest of the batter.

Layer the two batters. Start with the batter that has the fresh blackberries then add all or part of the batter with jam. If you want an extra swirl, repeat the layers.

Cut through the batter with a knife and place it in the oven to bake. A beautiful purple ripple will swirl throughout the blackberry bread.  It is a real show-stopper!

Every time you bake this blackberry lemon bread, the swirl pattern will look different. It is fun to make and so delicious.
