Blueberry Bread

I ran across this recipe on the internet yesterday and thought it sounded yummy and quicker than muffins. All that careful spooning of difficult batter into little holes – messy. Why have I never seen a recipe for blueberry bread before? This is so much easier!

It’s also healthier as it has whole wheat flour and oats too.

But most importantly, Harland loves blueberries so I decided to make it for him.

(The recipe that follows yields one loaf, but I doubled it to give a loaf to a friend.)

When it came out of the oven, Harland said, “It looks like a giant blueberry muffin.”  and grabbed a knife. He cut a one inch slab and covered it in whipped cream. It was pronounced to be “Good!”.
And then he added, “Of course it’s good, it has blueberries in it.”

    Your bread looks beautiful Suzanne, I can almost smell it!

    Suzanne, me again, do you think any fruit could be substituted for the blueberries?

  • Debbie

    Looks really yummy!
    Whipped cream makes it deluxe yummy!

    You all have good ideas, but my problem is how to make it gluten free! I have celiac disease and have been on the gluten free diet for nearly 30 years. Some recipes are easier than others to convert. I’m just grateful that now I can have gluten free oats!!! I will try to figure out how to make this, because it sounds yummy! I would not have thought of whipped cream on it – hm!!

    I made this bread and it was yummy. I went exactly by the recipe, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every last crumb. Thanks

    I made this bread just as soon as the electricity came back on after Wednesday’s snow storm. It is wonderful way to celebrate Thomas Edison! Thanks so much Suzanne.

    I baked this over the weekend… it tastes very good and the oats add a great texture. But… most of my blueberries settled to the bottom of the pan, which made a bit of a mess. I guess my batter turned out a bit thin???

    Any advice on what I can do to keep more even distribution of blueberries next time?

    Thanks for the great recipes!

      If the pan sat for any length of time before placing in the oven, that gave the blueberries time to sink. Or, you might try tossing the blueberries in flour before adding to the batter.
