Lycette’s Signature Blueberry Lime Bread

I have always believed in signatures- whether it is a signature hairstyle, signature accessory, or a signature recipe. Signatures become part of our identity and style, and are memorable to those we meet. Even though I am only 26, I have already developed a few signatures of my own.

One of my signatures is my collection of bangles, a mixture of gold and enamel is always adorning my wrist.

Family and friends  know I am never without my gold and enamel bangles, my house would be bare without my collection of Herend figurines, and, most deliciously, I would never attend a get together without gifting my trademark Blueberry Lime Bread.

The ingredients for Lycette’s Blueberry Lime Bread.

Speaking of a get together, this past week my mother and I had the pleasure of hosting a meet and greet for Babs and Sue Sue, authors of the book Sophistication is Overrated. The minute we planned the soiree I knew I had to bake make my Blueberry Lime Bread from the Savor The Moment cookbook. No matter who I gift the bread to, it is a hit! Thus, I knew it would be the perfect accompaniment to a morning filled with laughter and raspberry mimosas.

Hard to stop after one piece. But how decadent can it be? It is based on fruits after all…

Lime Bread with Blueberries

  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • grated zest of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup of sugar

Cream the butter and 1 cup sugar in a bowl until light. Beat in the eggs. Add the milk and mix well. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add to the butter mixture and beat until smooth. Stir in lime zest and blueberries.

Pour the batter into a greased 4×6 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Mix the lime juice and 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl until the sugar dissolves. Spoon over the hot bread before removing from the pan.

 Needless to say, both the party and the lime bread were a hit! We had a marvelous time connecting with old friends and new, while Babs and Sue Sue signed books.

What are some of your signatures? I would love to know!
