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!
This Blueberry Loaf is almost too delicious. The bread itself is quite sweet but it’s those blueberries that are mixed in that make it perfect. You take a bite and get those little bursts of fruity flavor- it’s just lovely!
The best part about all of this is that it’s super easy to make up a loaf of this Blueberry Bread. The prep is very simple and this stuff bakes up beautifully in about an hour. So easy to make, you’ll want to make it time and time again!
We really enjoyed this recipe: with all these flavors at work, it’s almost a sort of Blueberry Muffin Bread! If that doesn’t get you eager to make up a loaf of this stuff, we’re not sure what will.

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 for Blueberry Muffin Bread
Milk – You can, optionally, use something like half & half here if you wanted!
Blueberries – Fresh preferred.
Confectioner’s Sugar – This is optional if you’d like to make a glaze once your loaf is cooked. Just mix up with some milk and a few drops of your vanilla extract.
How to make our Blueberry Loaf
Seperately mix the wet and dry ingredients before combining into a bread “batter.”
Toss your blueberries in flour before adding them to the “batter.”
Bake your loaf for about an hour before serving and enjoying.
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.
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.
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.
Discard any excess flour and then add most of your blueberries to the bread “batter.” Gently fold in, again avoiding overmixing.
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.
