Blueberry Tea Bread
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling
I have been baking this since the recipe first appeared in 1997 and have never had a failure. I bake in 3 medium loaf pans and donate to several non-profit bake sales. It always sells out immediately.
I thought it was a tasty quick bread. I think it would be good with lemon zest also, in place of the orange. Mine took 65 mins.
I followed this recipe as it was written. Bread rose beautifully. I admit that when it was cooled and I sampled some of the bread, I felt it tasted somewhat bland! Do you have any suggestions? delowenstein
Used wild blueberries. To get the nice crunchy top, I sprinkled it heavily with raw sugar before baking. Watch the times, mine only needed about 50 mins and it was perfect. It would be good with lemon subbed for the orange as well.
My favorite blueberry quick bread recipes. Thanks!
I have been making this for a few years now and it always gets compliments. I have substituted lemon rind for the orange and use 1 cup of wild blueberries. This recipes doubles very nicely. Yummy!
