Makes 1 loaf.
I made a couple of slight modifications to the original recipe, and that's what I'm posting here. A lot of other reviewers had variations that sounded good, as well, so I'll include them below the Notes section of this post. If you want the original recipe, follow the link above.
5 Tbs. powdered sugar
3/4 cup + 1Tbs. white sugar
1/4 cup + 1 Tbs. melted butter
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1 2/3 cup + 1 Tbs. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (no need to thaw)
1 Tbs. butter
2 Tbs. brown sugar
Grate the zest from both lemons. Put 1 tsp. lemon zest in a small bowl, along with the juice from 1/2 a lemon and the powdered sugar; stir until smooth to make the glaze. Set aside.
Add the rest of the zest and lemon juice into a medium bowl, along with 3/4 cup white sugar, melted butter, eggs, and sour cream. Mix until blended. Stir in the milk.
Whisk together 1 2/3 cup flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Remove 3 Tbs and set aside. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture (large bowl) and stir until just combined.
Toss blueberries with reserved flour mixture. Fold gently into batter. Pour into a greased 9x5" loaf pan.
Cut butter, brown sugar, 1 Tbs. white sugar, and 1 Tbs. flour together with a fork or pastry cutter until crumbly. Sprinkle over top of batter.
Bake for 60 minutes at 350F, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and let cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Dust with powdered sugar.
Drizzle glaze over top of bread before serving.

- I'm guessing I used about 6 Tbs. powdered sugar, but I didn't exactly measure. Just keep adding more until the glaze reaches the consistency you'd like. However, the nutrition facts posted below are for the amounts I've listed.
- I wanted streusel topping, but it ended up being more of a sweet, crunchy crust. Still good, but not my intention. I'll work on that.
- The original recipe calls for poking holes in the bread and pouring the glaze over it straight out of the oven. I opted not to do that because several reviewers said it made the bread soggy if not eaten right away.
- Use buttermilk or soured milk instead of milk.
- Double the glaze.
- Add vanilla extract (probably 1 or 1 1/2 tsp.).
- Add 1/2 box lemon pudding mix to batter. (I wanted to try this but didn't have any lemon pudding!)
- Add a streusel topping. (Again, my plan for this one went awry.)
