Summer Comfort Food: Blueberry Bread

August 12, 2010


I have so much going on this week, and it’s the kid’s last week before school starts. I was craving something blueberry, yet comforting, and came up with this recipe for Blueberry Bread. My daughter, Leigh, helped me prepare it, and we decided to add cinnamon and orange zest which actually bumped up the flavor nicely. I tweeted and put a Facebook message while it was cooking in the oven (smelled heavenly), and I received incredible responses. So, here it is!

Blueberry Bread

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 1 hour, 15 minutes
Yield: 8 to 10 servings
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
11/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup skim milk
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
11/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Grease an 8-x 4-inch loafpan
3. In a mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, and eggs.
4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir into egg mixture alternating with milk. Fold in orange zest and blueberries. Pour into prepared pan.
5. Bake in preheated oven 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes.
