One of my favorite things to bake is a good, sweet, quick bread. Quick bread is easier than a cake (no frosting or fiddly work) and way quicker than a yeast bread (no kneading, no icing). And they can easily be served for either dessert, breakfast, or a snack. How great is that!

I often see recipes with a pairing of lemon and blueberries and that is a combination that I always enjoy! However, I also really like raspberries. They’re sweet and tart and they also go so well with lemon.

That’s why I used them in this delicious Lemon Raspberry Bread that I’m sharing with you today. This bread mixes up quickly and after baking it’s drenched with a lemon and sugar glaze.

The day after I baked this loaf, we had guests over and I served slices of this quick bread with a drizzle of salted caramel sauce and a dusting of powdered sugar. Yum!

How to Make Lemon Raspberry Bread

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan.

Mix dry ingredients for Lemon Raspberry Bread

In a medium bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Mixing ingredients for Lemon Raspberry Bread

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and 1 cup of sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the dry mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk.

Stir in lemon rind and raspberries

Stir in the lemon rind and raspberries.

Lemon Raspberry Bread batter in loaf pan and ready to bake

Turn into the prepared loaf pan. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour or until a tester inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Glaze for Lemon Raspberry Bread

While the cake bakes, stir together the 1/4 cup sugar and lemon juice. Stir occasionally while the cake is baking. The sugar will melt into the juice as it sits.

Apply glaze for Lemon Raspberry Bread

Remove the bread from the oven and pierce all over with a skewer or toothpick. Spoon the lemon glaze all over the cake. Cool for 15-20 minutes. Turn out onto rack and cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.

  1. Made this bread this morning and it is amazing!!!! Will definitely make it again! Such a fresh flavour. I added a few spoonfuls of Activia lemon yogurt and a tsp of vanilla to it and came out nice and moist! Thanks for my new favourite recipe!!

  2. Amanda @ The Kitcheneer says:

    I am loving this bread! Perfect for slicing on sunny Sunday mornings!

  3. Oh I just love lemon! This would be so welcome, especially in the hot summer afternoons.
    Glad to see that you are back in the kitchen.

  4. Martha @ A Family Feast says:

    Quick breads of any kind always remind me of my mother – she always made them because they were a quick and easy way to satisfy a sweet tooth!! This is definitely one she would love!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      This one is nicely sweet but quite tart at the same time – my favorite!

  5. Marjory @ Dinner-Mom says:

    The fresh raspberries sound wonderful and a perfect treat for weekend guests!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      This one is particularly good for almost any time of day, too. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack…whatever.

  6. Cookin Canuck says:

    I can never resist a good quick bread – easy to make and almost always tastier than any other dessert on the table. Lemon and raspberry sounds like a fantastic combination!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      They are, Dara, but I also like them because I don’t care for baking so much. At least all that fiddly stuff with frostings and fillings and such. I do them occasionally, but I’d so much rather mix up a quick batter like this and pour a glaze over it!

  7. Lemon and raspberry are one of my favorite summer combos! Love them in this bread!

  8. Erin @ Texanerin Baking says:

    I love breads where you poke holes and drown it in a glaze! It just makes them so ridiculously irresistible. :) And I love baking with raspberries, too! I just wish they weren’t so expensive so I wouldn’t have to feel guilty about mixing them into batter!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      Yes, they can be expensive, but I splurge every once in a while :-)

  9. This is such a pretty bread!! And I bet the flavors are so summery and perfect!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      Thanks, Sues! It is very summery.

  10. Kirsten/ComfortablyDomestic says:

    Quick breads are a summer staple in my house. Bless you for including such a healthy amount of lemon zest in this bread. I’m sure the lemony tang perfectly accentuates the sweet raspberries.

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      You’re right, there is a lot of zest in the batter plus that lemon and sugar glaze just adds all that much more!

  11. Lauren Kelly Nutrition says:

    I also love quick breads and these flavors are absolute perfection!

  12. Stephanie says:

    Ohhhh yum! Love this flavor combo!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      Thanks, Stephanie! We love it, too.

    I know I would love this; lemon and raspberry are favorites and together they are simply divine. I love me some tart!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      They are a great combo, Barb, and I love them together, too!

  16. The Food Hunter says:

    Quick breads are great to whip up when guests are coming! Love this combo

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      Yes, they are. And they’re also good to keep in the freezer for unexpected company.
