Blueberry Bread Recipe

Publisher Photo
This is a simple quick bread recipe that I look forward to making when fresh blueberries are in season. It's so good, though, that I end up making it year-round. —Karen Scales

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Whisk the egg, orange juice and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Toss blueberries with remaining flour; fold into batter.
  2. Pour into a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Bake at 325° for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).

This was delicious! I had no problem with the bread being dry. The only thing I added was about 2 teaspoons orange zest to a triple batch. I will make this again!

MY REVIEW

I too found the batter to be very thick. I thought I may have done something wrong. Then, I read the other reviews and saw it was the same for most. When I pulled it out of the oven, just by looking at it I knew it would be dry. I tried it after it cooled. It was dry. BUT, the next morning, I warmed a slice up and put some margarine on it. It was yummy! I will make this again, but I think will try to add apple sauce as well.

Oh, and I also added a couple of dashes of cinnamon.  I like a little cinnamon with blueberries!
