Blueberry bread

Blueberries are finally in season! I love blueberries. I love eating them and I love baking with them. I had seen this blueberry quick bread from Buns in My Oven a while back and marked it for when blueberries came in season. I love how easy it is to make quick breads.

This bread tasted a bit healthier than I had imagined. It isn't too sweet, has a lot of oats. It's probably a good breakfast bread. This wasn't my favorite blueberry recipe, but I think it might just be a personal preference. I did like how it looked.

The recipe Buns in My Oven used was adapted from Betty Crocker. I ended up using the Betty Crocker one with some modifications after reading some of the comments.

On another note, there's still time to enter my panda cookies giveaway which you can read about here.

Blueberry bread 

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups white flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees and grease the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch loaf pan.

2. In the bowl of your mixer, add sugar, milk, oil, and
eggs. Mix well. Mix in the remaining ingredients except for the
blueberries and mix until combined. Fold in the blueberries. Sprinkle some oats on top if you prefer.

3. Pour in the loaf pan and bake for 45-55 minutes or until a tester
comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes and then remove from the
pan and cool on a wire rack.

    I think this bread probably does make a good breakfast bread. And you can make it healthier by using wheat flour and apple sauce too.
