Berry Lemon Bread

1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
½ teas. baking soda
¾ cup sugar
½ teas. salt
2 eggs
1 teas. baking powder
1 cup lemon yogurt
¼ cup canola oil
2 teas. lemon zest
1 teas. lemon extract
1 cup berries
(I used raspberries and huckleberries)
-if you use frozen berries, thaw them first

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl combine eggs,
yogurt, sugar, oil, extract, and lemon zest. Add dry ingredients just
until moistened. Fold in berries.
Spray pan with nonstick spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.
Toothpick will come out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan and then
transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
If I were taking this bread to someone for a gift, I would make a
lemon glaze with lemon juice and powdered sugar to make it
sweeter and pretty. I prefer to have less sugar if I am the one
eating it. I didn’t have a lemon to zest, and it turned out yummy.
We happily participate in THESE link parties!
