Blueberry Loaf Cake Recipe

MY FAMILY loves fresh blueberries just about any way, but this loaf cake is a favorite at breakfast, as a delicious snack or quick dessert. We always look forward to summer, when fresh blueberries appear in the market. -Nancy Anderson, Broomall, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings
