Blueberry Bread

Posted on 07/07/2013 by patsrockmybosox
This is a new recipe for me, but it's quickly become one of my favorites. It's also a fun tongue twister :)

When I mentioned making this at work, my boss was pretty much ready to send me home early so that I could start baking right away. The next morning, I barely got me (and the bread) in the door before everyone started asking if I made it and if they could have some right away.

Blueberry Bread
2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 stick butter, room temperature
1 c. sugar, plus more for dusting
2 eggs
6 oz. vanilla yogurt
1 pint blueberries

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a loaf pan and set aside.

In a medium sized bowl, combine butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one.

Add the flour, baking powder and yogurt. Mix until everything is incorporated.

Carefully fold in the blueberries, being careful not to overstir and not to crush any blueberries.

Scoop batter into prepared pan, using the back of a spoon to gently even it out, if necessary. Bake for 30 minutes and remove bread from oven. Sprinkle about 1 Tbsp of sugar on top, then return to oven for approximately 30 more minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

When bread is finished baking, let cool in pan for about 10-15 minutes. Gently run a knife around the outside edge. Carefully invert onto a plate or cutting board and move to wire rack to cool completely.

Yields 10-12 slices, depending on thickness.

Nope. I rinsed them out and lightly patted them dry, then set them aside while I put everything else together, then just dumped them into the batter and carefully folded them in so they didn't get squished. I made 2 loaves and didn't have issues either time with them sinking to the bottom.

I have a similar recipe, but for lemon blueberry bread. I add the zest and juice of one lemon and a teaspoon of lemon extract to the bread batter. Sometimes I put a light glaze on top too. Made with powdered sugar and juice of a lemon.

No wonder your co-workers love this. It looks very good. You can hardly go wrong with blueberry anything. I also like using yogurt in my bread instead of a lot of oil or butter. It keeps the bread very moist without adding all that fat. Thanks for sharing.

Is this more of a cake or bread? And does it turn out pretty sweet?
patsrockmybosox 15th-Jul-2013 12:43 am (UTC)
It's really light and airy, so I guess it would really depend on what pan you baked it in, but I think it works better as a bread than a cake. It's not bland, but not overly sweet, either. The tartness of the berries helps even out any sweetness so it's a nice combination.

Thanks! Did you use fresh or frozen blueberries?
patsrockmybosox 20th-Jul-2013 02:30 pm (UTC)
I used fresh, but I think frozen would probably work too. You'd probably want to let them defrost and drain the juice first, though.

Sounds good! I'm gonna try this tomorrow, hopefully it turns out well (: thanks again for the recipe.

Just made it! I used a cup whole wheat flour and a cup of white flour and added a bit of vanilla extract since I only had plain yogurt and it's so goood.

soccerreporter Frozen vs fresh berries27th-Jan-2014 03:32 am (UTC)
I tried making this with frozen and I did not let them defrost. Usually the berries get pretty mushed when they defrost.

It looks like an easy recipe. I will definitely try this.

Drooling over this. I'm pushing it straight to the top of my 'to bake' list.
