This blueberry bread is moist, sweet, and full of blueberries. It is like a blueberry muffin that you can slice and enjoy! It is delicious and perfect for breakfast, brunch, or a snack anytime!
I love blueberries.
I can eat them by the handful… pint full actually. And I love putting them in baked goods. Blueberry cobbler, blueberry pie, blueberry muffins (these blueberry oatmeal ones are some of my favorites.)
So when I came across a recipe for a blueberry quick bread in an old cookbook I knew that I would love it. I also knew that my boys would devour it.
The original recipe had nuts and a little more sugar so I tweaked it a little to come up with this recipe.
Although it is a blueberry sweet bread I didn’t want it to be overly sweet. With just a little sweetness the blueberry flavor really shines through.
The great thing about this blueberry bread is that it can be used as breakfast, brunch, a snack or even a dessert. It is amazing with a cup of coffee. It is delicious plain or with a little butter or cream cheese on top.
This really is just blueberry muffins in loaf form. If you love the recipe you can totally spoon it into muffin tins and adjust the baking time (about 20 minutes)
Muffins are a little more portable, great for grab and go, but I love to make it in loaf form for breakfasts and brunches. There is something about that beautiful loaf pan brimming with blueberries and delicious cake-like texture.
