Contest-Winning Blueberry Quick Bread Recipe

Contest-Winning Blueberry Quick Bread Recipe

This sweet bread recipe has won a blue ribbon at our state fair, perhaps because the crushed pineapple and coconut give it a mild but delicious twist. It makes two loaves, so you can freeze one for a future treat. —Lois Everest, Goshen, Indiana

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
