I love baking of all types: cakes, biscuits, donuts, cookies, pies, bread, scones, muffins, and much more!

The bread looks scrumptious and beautiful with the bright red and purple colors from the fresh raspberries and blueberries.

Lemon and Raspberry: Yum!

My husband loves sour and tangy fruits such as lemon and raspberry. The other day, he challenged me to make the lemon bread I've made before—but this time to add raspberries instead of blueberries. The results were marvelous. Let me share how easy it is to make this delicious treat.

The recipe is very similar to the one I've used before to make lemon bread with blueberry filling, but for the raspberry variation I have added an extra half cup of sugar to compensate for the sourness that comes from the raspberries.

Be sure to let the loaf cool completely before drizzling the lemon glaze on top. It is also important to allow time for the glaze set before serving.

I have no doubt that you and your family will love this bread!
