Blueberry Quick Bread with Vanilla Sauce Recipe

Blueberry Quick Bread with Vanilla Sauce Recipe

"This loaf is chock-full of blueberries—two whole cups!" says Sue Davis from Wausau, Wisconsin. "When you pour the vanilla sauce over the bread, it makes it moist--almost like a pudding. I suggest serving a robust cup of coffee with this delicious treat."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • VANILLA SAUCE:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the egg, milk and oil. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture, beating just until combined. Fold in blueberries.
  • 2. Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 3. For sauce, combine sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in cream until smooth; add butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with blueberry bread. Yield: 8 servings (2 cups sauce).
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
