Blueberry Bread Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

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).
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
