Lemon Raspberry Bread

Spring always makes me think of recipes that involve lemon.

This glazed raspberry lemon bread is super easy to make and it’s the perfect addition to your morning coffee with it’s yummy citrus and berry flavors. These two fruits together make the most perfect combination ever.

Lemon is that kind of a baking player that just teams up with pretty much anything, but this Lemon Raspberry Bread is definitely my all time favorite pairing so far. With the coconut lemon glaze dripping over the top, this bread is everything you need!

This bread is so soft and moist. Just slightly sweet with a nice taste from the raspberry and a hint of the lemon.

The glaze is a mix of coconut milk, raspberry jam, lemon zest and lemon juice. I wanted to make this bread extra cute and extra pink so I added some crushed raspberries and dried edible flowers.

Warning: It’s addicting and will not provide you with leftovers (speaking from experience).
