Blackberry Lemon Bread Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blackberries


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan, or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, eggs, melted butter, Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, lemon zest, and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients. Gently fold the ingredients together until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Gently fold in the fresh blackberries into the batter, distributing them evenly throughout the mixture.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.
  7. Bake the Blackberry Lemon Bread in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Slice the bread, serve, and savor the delightful combination of sweet blackberries and zesty lemon!
