Blueberry Muffin Bread Recipe

   This Blueberry Muffin Bread is a favourite Recipe.  This blueberry loaf is wonderful after dinner with some coffee but equally good for breakfast.

This Blueberry Muffin Bread 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!

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.

    I just printed your recipe to make some bread as i need to use the blueberries in the fridge and this recipe looks delicious!

    • Elizabeth says

      I hope yours turns out as well as mine did, I just made two more loaves over the weekend and both are already gone!

  2. Nena Sinclair says

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

  3. Victoria Ess says

    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.

  4. Karen S. says

    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.

  5. Darlene Ysaguirre says

    I never knew it was this easy to make your own bread thanks for sharing this will be my first attempt at homemade bread!

  6. says

    This looks so good. I had just bought a tonne of blueberries cheap at the market. I never know what to do with them. I think my family would love this. Thanks

    • Elizabeth says

      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.

  7. john hutchens says

    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 : )

  8. Cheryl Grandy says

    Our blueberries are almost ready to pick, so I may be trying this recipe soon. I love raw blueberries. My husband prefers them cooked so this would be a nice treat for him (and for me too!).

  9. ANN*H says

    This looks so good . I usually buy blueberries when they are buy one get one free. But eat on container full just the way they are. The others I use for muffins. Mmm…..best around . thanks for your recipe

  10. Judy C (Cowan) says

    This recipe looks great, easy to make and the pics of it look great. Thanks for sharing it will have to add it to my collection of recipes to try!

  11. Teresa Claire says

    This recipe looks delicious and so easy & quick! I will have to try this and remember to put a few on top…I trust you :) I have a family blueberry muffin recipe but this looks far more delish than what I usually bake!

  12. Karen S. says

    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. :)

  13. Terrence Blizzard says

    I just made this today, EXCELLENT!!!!! I had some frozen blueberries and just happened to find this recipe. I will be making this every week from now on. A new family favorite, half gone already.

  14. Erika Birrell says

    Oh my gosh, this looks SO good!! I am definitely making this this week!! I love anything blueberry!!! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  15. Hannah says

    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.

  16. Charlene S. says

    This looks so good. Thanks for posting the recipe. I’m always looking for another great bread to make :)

  17. rosanne says

    This is so fun and practical at the same time! Thank you so much for sharing :) I like that it is simple and so almost like a canvas….Since I had the time today I completely substituted the sugar out and replaced it with applesauce and vanilla whey protein powder…And I am so excited to see how it turns out. I have about 5 mins. left till I can pull it out. I am going to glaze it with a mixture of coconut oil, key lime juice & water and then sprinkle with toasted shredded coconut :)

  18. Lynda Cook says

    I am so mad at myself right now, I bought blueberries to make this recipe and I went and ate way to many of the berries to make this loaf, so I guess it’s back to go buy more blueberries..lol

  19. Jeannie says

    That looks amazing! I have always made blueberry muffins, but never thought of making it into a loaf. I like to add lemon rind and juice to make it a lemon blueberry muffin.

  20. Melissa says

    So I made this however I added juice from one medium lime and also made my own glaze to put over it and it was delicious!

  21. Elaine Buonsante says

    I have a freezer full of blueberries right now so I’m always looking for new ways to use them. Your Blueberry Muffin Loaf looks amazing and delicious! And what a great idea to use it for French Toast! You are very creative!

  22. Denise says

    Just put this deliciousness in the oven. My daughter thought a streusel topping would be nice, so we did it. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

  23. June S. says

    (BLUEBERRY MUFFIN BREAD RECIPE) This recipe would be nice to make for my husband and I for this coming weekend-

  24. Alayne Langford says

    I am going to try your recipe with my all-purpose gluten free flour and see how it turns out!! It is yet another simple recipe that looks yummy!! :) ty

  25. Laura says

    I have some mini / individual loaf tins and want to make this in there for a present. How long would I cook them for please?

  26. paularu78 says

    Can I use frozen blueberries? Will these thaw while baking? If so, baking time changes or not?

    Thanks

  27. Lori says

    I never leave comments for recipes I try because I usually tweak them.
    We took our 7 yr old nephew blueberry pickin’ came home w/17.5 lbs
    & froze them. Found your recipe & decided to make it for a friend who
    is ill. Only change was a full cup of blueberries for the top, I trusted you!
    It’s in the oven now & I’m afraid our sick friend will have to wait for the
    NEXT loaf. They say what you don’t know, won’t hurt you

  28. Lori says

    I left the last comment, it was FANTASTIC!!! 4 days later I’ve got another loaf in the oven by special request from my husband, HE LOVES IT!!!!! Your directions are so simple, easy & straight forward.
    Thanks for the extra added pounds I’ve gained
    This is a KEEPER!!!

  29. Denise says

    I made this a few weeks ago with blueberries left over from my daughter’s graduation party. I was fabulous…and didn’t last long! Thanks so much for sharing! I know I will be making it again!

  30. beth says

    i just made this but used frozen blue berries an i g uess i did something wrong when i added them into the batter because even though they were frozen i still got more blue streaked batter arghhhhhhhhhh , what should i have done differently with the frozen berries besides maybe rinsing them before i added them to the batter a folded them in with a giant spoon and still turned my batter purple

    • Elizabeth says

      If you are using frozen you need to add the blueberries pretty much last minute before pouring the batter into the pan and into the oven. Leaving them in the batter too long or allowing them to thaw even a bit will cause the streaking. Be sure to only gently fold them in. I would not rinse them if they were rinsed before they were frozen.

  31. Ann says

    Hi, I made this today and it was so totally easy! But after letting it cool for 10 minutes when I loosened sides and took out of pan it fell apart. I used buttermilk instead of regular milk and added a dash of vanilla, could that be the reason? It was still very delicious!

    • Joanne says

      I just made this today and just now removed it from loaf pan, but I always wait 45 to 50 minutes to ensure that it has cooled down and will run a knife along the sides before removing. When I used to try to remove cake out of a pan after 10 minutes it would break. I also used buttermilk and vanilla. Mine did not fall apart, but I greased the loaf pan and I also dusted it with flour. I noticed the recipe did not say flour the pan, but I have cooked for almost 49 years and have a habit of greasing the baking pans and dusting them with flour.
      I must say this recipe is easier than pouring individual batter into muffin pans. Unless specifically asked to make muffins, I am done with muffins and prefer the loaf cake way. :)

  32. Mrs B says

    If you take a couple of tablespoons of your flour and toss the berries in it they will not sink in your batter. You should not have to press more into the top of the loaf before baking.

  33. Terri Baker says

    A great alternative to banana bread. My granddaughter is going to love this. Blueberries are such a great price right now, so it’s a good time to make it.

  34. says

    Just made blueberry bread; but a layer of blueberries and bread stayed glued to the pan bottom !!! (it was greased with butter too)!!! I think 2 cups of blueberries was a little too much, BUT IT WAS DELICIOUS!! I’m also gonna flour the berries next time. (which will be extremely soon!) has anyone experienced what happened to me?
    Jim

    • Elizabeth says

      Did you let the bread cool enough before you removed it from the pan? Sometimes baked goods will stick like that despite a greased pan if they are still hot.

  35. says

    Thank you for replying; and yes, I actually let the bread sit in the pan, on a rack for 20 mins..But I’m going to do this again……very soon! (and as I said previously, it was DELICIOUS and nobody cared what happened to it; it was gone in ONE day!

      • says

        I promise I’ll stop being a posting pest…..just had to send this FYI……..used 1 1/2 cup FROZEN blueberries..did NOT dust them….sprayed lots of Pam on the bottom, and only had about 20% of the bread stick to the bottom!! Ha ha ha…. (pan is only 3 years old too). I’ll keep making it b/c …..it’s so very Good! And I’ll get to a place where ALL OF IT comes out of the pan! (I know they’ll start to devour this tonight, and I’m gonna grab at least a BIG slice to go with tomorrow’s coffee!!)
        Thanks again, Jim
