Our Favorite Blueberry Bread!
I’m always excited to find new recipes to bake and bring to a neighbor or friend. Sometimes, (just sometimes) I feel a little guilty because I know someone wants to eat healthier and I have a plate of chocolate chip cookies on their doorstep. I’m so cheap! Well, I’m always happy to find a good recipe for oatmeal or fruit because I can claim it’s healthier. 😉
Today’s blueberry bread recipe is one of our favorites to give to our neighbors. Loaded with blueberries, this quick bread is super easy to make. Of course, it’s not healthy, but it’s delicious! !
We love this recipe because it doesn’t involve yeast and because it has a delicious glaze on it.
How to Make Blueberry Quick Bread
We call it “quick” bread because it doesn’t require any yeast, which means no rise time! You just mix the ingredients together, put them in the pan, and bake!
bread. Beat eggs, milk and oil in a large bowl. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and slowly add to egg mixture. Beat until combined. Pour in blueberries.
*tip*: A trick used by many bakers Prevent blueberries from sinking to the bottom is to mix them with the flour before folding them into the muffin batter.
bake. Pour the batter into the greased baking pan. We have enough batter to make two 8×4 pans. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes.
glaze. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and cornstarch. Add the cream and beat until smooth, then add the butter. Bring to a boil and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add vanilla and stir. Drizzle over hot bread.
notes: The recipe for the glaze is huge. We have plenty left after adding a lot to the bread, so you can cut the glaze in half and have plenty more!
change and storage
- Substitute raspberries for blueberries
- Make it lemony: Add 2 tablespoons of lemon zest to the batter before baking. Lemon extract can also be used in the glaze.
- Almond Flavor: Add almond extract to the glaze and top with sliced almonds.
- Substitute the glaze with a dusting of powdered sugar or white sugar
muffin: In addition to the flavor variation, you can also make it into blueberry muffins. Divide batter into muffin tins and fill about ⅔. Bake at 400°F for 15-20 or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
mini bread: Divide the batter into 4-5 mini loaf pans. Bake at 350°F for about 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Mini loaves make great gifts for neighbors, teachers or friends!
Storing Quick Bread: The first rule of storing quick breads and muffins is to wait for them to cool completely, otherwise they will continue to emit steam and make them soggy on the outside.
- Store them in an airtight container with a paper towel or two to absorb moisture. They should keep on the counter for about 4-5 days, or a week in the refrigerator.
- Refrigerator: Wrap the bread in plastic wrap, then aluminum foil, or place it in the refrigerator Ziploc. Label and store for up to 3 months.
