Blueberry Lemon Bread

This week is spring break in my world.  It feels like spring break and this has put me into a summer baking mood.  I found this wonderful recipe in The American Country Inn and Bed and Breakfast Cookbook.  Happy baking on this first day of spring!
Blueberry Lemon Tea Bread

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, or margarine
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 -1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar

In large bowl with mixer at low speed, beat butter and the 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating in thoroughly each time. Combine flour, salt and baking powder. Add milk and dry ingredients alternately. Gently stir in blueberries (don't thaw, if frozen). Spoon batter into greased and floured 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350º for 70 to 75 minutes, or until paring knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Combine lemon juice and 1/3 cup sugar and spoon over bread. Let stand about 20 minutes and remove to rack to cool completely. Slice and enjoy!
