Lemon Blueberry Bread with Coconut

Another quick bread, I love how fast they stir together.  I almost always use my small loaf pans, they make cute little loaves easy to wrap up and give away!

2 cups flour
1½ tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 (8oz) lemon yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
zest of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1½ cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup coconut

Preheat oven to 350°.  In medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  In small bowl, stir together lemon yogurt, vanilla, and lemon zest.  In large bowl, cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well.  Add dry ingredients alternately with lemon yogurt mixture, beating just until combined.  Fold in blueberries and coconut.  Scoop batter into one large sprayed loaf pan or three small sprayed loaf pans.  Bake large for 50-60 minutes and small for 40-45 minutes or until pick comes out clean.  When cool, drizzle with lemon frosting if desired.

Lemon Drizzle:
1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
1-2 tsp lemon juice

Mix until desired consistency and drizzle over cooled loaf (loaves).
