Amazing Blueberry Bread


Ahhh...Blueberries

If you don't have any blueberries in your fridge right now I hope this makes you want to go get some.

We love them at our house.

The kids love to just eat them like candy (I am serious, I won't tell them otherwise either)

I love to throw them in cereal and well make this lovely cake like bread.

(Yes I put it in a loaf pan and call it bread so I can feel better about eating it, you can do the same, give it a try it will make you feel better)

So, let's get down to business at hand...

Amazing Blueberry Bread
from Granny's Kitchen
makes 2 loaves


Got Blueberries?
Ingredients1 ½ c. sugar
⅔ C. oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 can of blueberries (or 1 pint of fresh blueberries)
2 ½ C. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 C. buttermilk

DirectionsGrease two 9 x 3 inch loaf pans and set aside.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Mix sugar, oil, vanilla, and eggs until creamy and smooth.

Sift 2 ½ c. flour with baking soda and salt. Reserve ½ c. of flour mixture to sprinkle over blueberries)

Add flour mixture alternately to creamed mixture with 1 c. buttermilk.

Mix blueberries with reserved flour mixture and fold into dough, stirring enough to mix berries.

Pour into greased 9 x 3 loaf pans.

Bake at 325 degrees F for 1 hour.

Then enjoy with a nice cup of coffee or hot tea in my case, white tea with blueberry and pomegranate!



This is so simple and easy to make, yet so delicious.

Makes a great breakfast bread or anytime snack.

It is wonderfully sweet but not rich or overpowering so perfect for someone with a sweet tooth like me to keep satisfied enough to stay away from rich chocolate for a little while! And a wonderful way to incorporate fresh berries!

So please give it a try and have fun... play with your food!
