Yield: 1 (9-inch) loaf

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 50 min

Juicy, flavorful berries in every bite- this is a good one.

Ingredients:

TOPPING:
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1/3 cup all purpose flour
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

BREAD:
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup milk
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 large egg
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh blackberries
1 Tablespoon grated lemon zest

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

2. Stir together topping ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

3. Prepare bread: In a medium bowl, mix with an electric mixer the sugar, milk, butter and egg until smooth.

4. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir into wet mixture just until combined. Gently fold in blackberries and lemon zest.

5. Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with the topping. Bake until topping is deep golden and has formed a thick crust (approximately 50 minutes). Cool in pan 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.

Tips:

*Keep an eye on the topping while baking. If it begins to darken/burn, cover with foil for remainder of baking.
