Blueberry Bread

I love a good, homemade loaf of bread. When you eat the store-bought, enriched white bread enough, you definitely start to crave variety. Making bread at home can help mix things up- especially when you start branching out into all sorts of fun “filled bread” recipes. Recently, we made up some of this Blueberry Bread that we’re eager to share with all of you!

  • For another delicious baked good, try our Blueberry Buckle. Great for breakfast, dessert, or just snacking on, this recipe sees plump blueberries added into a coffee-type cake. That’d be delicious enough on its own but we topped this delicious treat off with a crispy, crumbly streusel topping!
  • On the colder side of things, you could also whip up some No Churn Easy Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream! No ice cream machine needed for this easy frozen dessert- just cook up a quick and easy blueberry syrup and mix it in with our cream mixture. A few hours later: delicious, easy-to-make ice cream!
  • If you want a topping that you can add to all of your favorite cakes, waffles, and desserts, go with our Easy Blueberry Sauce. This stuff is so simple to mix up- it only needs 5 ingredients that you probably have most of already. Perfect for using up leftover fresh or frozen blueberries!

Ingredients to make Blueberry Loaf

How to make our Blueberry Loaf

We’re going to try to keep prep very simple. Here’s what you need to do:
  1. Seperately mix the wet and dry ingredients before combining into a bread “batter.”
  2. Toss your blueberries in flour before adding them to the “batter.”
  3. Bake your loaf for about an hour before serving and enjoying.

Eggs and butter in a bowl

We’re going to mix our dry and wet ingredients separately before mixing them together. First, the wet stuff: using a hand/stand mixer, cream together your butter, sugar, and some vanilla extract. Once those are creamed together, add in your eggs, beat to combine then add in your milk, and do the same.

Milk added to butter and sugar

In a separate bowl, sift together your dry ingredients: the flour, baking powder, and salt. If you’d like, sift your dry ingredients 2-3 times to introduce plenty of air into your dough. Now add the wet ingredients and gently stir everything together, trying to not overmix.

Once that batter comes together, we can focus on the blueberries. Place in a mixing bowl.

Rinsed blueberries in a bowl

Cover your berries with some flour and toss them to coat. Once they’ve got a decent coating of flour on them, you can move to the next step.

Flour added to blueberries

Discard any excess flour and then add most of your blueberries to the bread “batter.” Gently fold in, again avoiding overmixing.

Blueberries added to bread batter

Transfer your berry-filled batter to a prepped loafpan- greased and optionally floured.

Here, we can add our remaining blueberries. Top the batter with your leftover blueberries before transferring the pan to an awaiting 350 degree oven.

In about an hour, your blueberry loaf should be baked. You’ll know it’s done when a toothpick, poked into the bread, pulls out clean. Once baked, pull from the oven and let the loaf cool. Once the bread cools, serve and enjoy!

Can you freeze Blueberry Bread?

This bread should freeze very well! We’d recommend letting it cool completely before slicing and letting the slices freeze seperately. You can do this by either laying them out on a baking sheet in a single layer or seperating the slices with pieces of parchment paper. Once frozen, this bread will taste best if enjoyed within 3-6 months. To reheat, just warm back up in an oven until heated through.

    I hosted a baby shower this weekend and have so many leftover blueberries from the fruit tray. I printed out your recipe to use them up tonight. Thanks for sharing it. #HomeMattersParty

  2. Blueberry bread and muffins are my favorite! I will need to try this recipe out for sure. I picked it as one of my features at this week’s Snickerdoodle Create Bake Make Link Party!

    1. Hi Bonnie! Yes, you can use frozen blueberries for this quick bread. You may get a bit more blue coloring to your bread. I have not tried the frozen but, there should be no reason they will not work. Be sure to let us know your results. Have a wonderful afternoon and thanks for following along.
