 The snow is falling, the wind is blowing, and we are all bundling up for the long winter ahead! While trapped inside of the house for days on end, it’s hard not to sit and daydream about warm, tropical climates with the sand between your toes, and a hot cabana boy delivering fruity drinks with cute umbrellas.

Then you hear the sound of a snowplow going down the street, and you are slapped back into reality!

Not only is is bitterly cold outside, but there is also a flu epidemic spreading across the country. 🙁  My solution…..avoid leaving the house whenever possible!! I would much rather stay home, turn on the warm oven, and bake a loaf or two of this delicious Lemon Blackberry Bread…..

Not only do lemons scream summer {and warm weather}, they also contain strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers. Paired with blackberries, which are an excellent source of Vitamin C, you are well on your way to boosting your immunity against those nasty flu germs! But sometimes that just isn’t enough…..

and bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. There is nothing better on a ridiculously cold day, than a hot cup of Bigelow tea to warm you up from the inside!!

I used Truvia® Baking Blend to make this moist and delicious Lemon Blackberry Bread…..

Truvia® Baking Blend is a blend of Truvia® Natural Sweetener and sugar with 75% fewer calories per serving than sugar. It bakes and browns like sugar, but you use half as much. Half a cup of Truvia® Baking Blend is as sweet as of 1 cup of sugar. Same great tasting treats, with fewer calories!!

Truvia’s natural sweetness comes straight from the leaves of the stevia plant. You can use it in coffee and tea and on cereal, fruit, oatmeal, and yogurt. I can’t wait to make a zero-calorie simple syrup to use in my lemonade and cocktails this summer! 😉

  1. What a thoughtful little basket of stuff! 🙂 It’s sure to make anyone’s day brighter!

  2. I just love the flavor combo of lemon with blackberries! 🙂 This bread looks delicious, and I love that is lower in sugar and immunity boosting. That basket is such a thoughtful idea for someone who has come down with a nasty bug.

  3. This is perfect for me because I can not eat breads with yeast and not much wheat. I am going to try this with Spelt flour and see how it works. I have been making an Amish Cinnamon bread and I vary the add ins like walnuts and craisins.

    1. I tried a commercial brand gluten free flour and, lucky for me (I’m no baker), the bread turned out surprisingly good! Hope my ‘wheat-restricted’ pal thinks so too!

    1. I would assume that you could Susan, but I have never tried it myself. I would still bake it at 350 degrees, but cut the time down to 20 minutes, maybe 25?? Good luck. 🙂

  4. I have recently discovered Truvia Baking Blend. I am diabetic and am so happy and thankful for this new product. I used this product in all my Thanksgiving and Christmas Desserts. What a JOY to have pumpkin, apple, lemon and an old recipe I have used for years, Harvest Loaf. I was so delighted when I made this special recipe and it was tasty and moist. I had been disappointed when I made these recipes using Splenda because they were so dry. I used the Truvia Blend in breads, cakes, pies and yeast breads and rolls successfully. I also use Truvia in all my beverages and etc. I use both Truvia and Stevia.

    1. I tried it todsy….IT IS DELICIOUS! I didn’t have the other baking pan so I used a glass one…I prefer the pan u posted, so I’ll use it next time. Thanks again.

  5. Thanks Lisa,
    I made the bread following the recipe to the letter and it turned out absolutely beautiful! Along with a dollop of butter, topped a slice with Meyers Lemon curd, that I’d made last night. Yum. Tried a second round using Pillsbury gluten free flour and it turned out equally good, using mini loaf pans and adjusting bake time ( eye-balling with crossed fingers).

  6. I tried the Lemon Blackberry bread using the recipe. I found, for my taste, that the lemon, which I love, and the Greek yogurt combine for a tartness that the 1/2 cup of Truvia is overpowered. Next time, I will up the sweetness and dice the berries in half, most of mine fell to the bottom of the loaf. Or maybe, I will use Greek honey yogurt. Thanx.

  7. Your lemon blackberry bread looks perfect right now as I watch the wind blow around the snow outside! We didn’t quite get the storm we were supposed to, but it still it cold and dreary…this would be the perfect pick me up! Thanks for sharing it with us at Foodie Fridays and DIY…spreading lots of foodie love around for you!

  8. Wow! This bread looks amazing! I have never tried blackberry and lemon together, but it sounds delicious! The teas look really good too. Thanks so much for sharing this post at my Creative Ways Link Party! Hope you’ll be back tonight with more goodies!
    Blessings,
    Nici
