  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon extract
  • 1 1/2 cups biscuit baking mix
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries *

  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and lemon extract. Stir in the baking mix and lemon rind just until blended. Carefully stir in the blueberries. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Immediately poke holes in 1-inch intervals on the top of the bread with a toothpick. In a small non-stick saucepan over medium heat or in the microwave oven, combine the remaining 1/3 cup sugar and lemon juice, heating until the sugar is dissolved. Pour evenly over the top of the bread. Cool and slice.
