Blueberry Muffin Bread Recipe

by Elizabeth

This is just the yummiest bread for breakfast or really any time of the day.  I used frozen blueberries I had picked myself and froze last year – they were still very fresh tasting.  This bread is even better with freshly picked berries, so if you can do that go for it!  I love to make French Toast with this bread the next day, recipe to follow!

Ingredients

1 cup white sugar
1/2 Cup Salted Butter
2 eggs
1 Cup Milk
2 Cups All purpose Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 Cups Blueberries

 

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9 inch loaf pan.
  3. Cream together the butter and sugar. 
  4. Add the eggs and milk beating well.
  5. Add the dry ingredients and beat until well combined
  6. Add blueberries and mix by hand gently with a spatula being careful not to crush the berries.
  7. Pour batter into your loaf pan and bake for 60-75 minutes.
  8. Allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to finish cooling.

Great Tip: Reserve a small handful Blueberries for after the batter is poured into the loaf pan.  Gently press them into the top to make the loaf look prettier.  Trust me.

This looks amazing! I’ve also got blueberries to use up, so I’ll be making this tomorrow! Thanks so much for the recipe!

This recipe had me drooling! I will be picking up blueberries specially just to make this bread!

Great tip for topping the bread with blueberries! I also freeze mine so I can enjoy blueberries throughout the year. I found that the frozen blueberries can be mixed into the batter with no problems, and that way, I don’t have to worry about crushing the blueberries when I mix the batter.

Looks great. I’ll make it as per the recipe the first time, to get a baseline, but I can already think of adjustments I’d like to try. I always use whole wheat flour instead of white flour in my baking, because it’s healthier and just as delicious. I’d probably try adding a bit of lemon juice and salt too, just to enhance the opposing flavours.

Lemon juice or grated rind (or both) would be amazing mixed in!

Yummy! That would be so good toasted with cream cheese.

Reply

Elizabeth August 15, 2013 at 11:06 pm

Yes! I think you could even mush some blueberries in with the cream cheese or even blueberry jam if you have some and make it extra yummy.

thanks for the recipe trying it tonight. My significant other has picked 10 gallons of blueberries and is still picking( think she is addicted to picking berries) LOL this would be a nice way to use them this winter. instead of just jam. If you have anymore blueberry recipes I hope you share : )

Yum. I have to make this bread, but as usual I will swap whole wheat flour for the white flour. For very little change to the taste, you get some extra fibre. :)

Can I substitute unsalted butter for the salted? I don’t keep salted butter and don’t have any other recipes I can make to use it up.

Reply

Elizabeth April 3, 2014 at 9:05 pm

Absolutely! You could add a pinch of salt to make up for it (or not!).

Reply
