4 Ingredient Blueberry Bread (No Eggs, Butter or Oil)

This easy blueberry bread is tender, soft, moist and bursting with blueberries. The bread is just 4 ingredients and takes only a few minutes to prepare. The bread also doesn’t require any eggs, butter or oil.

Blueberries are finally in season and we’ve been eating them almost daily. I also love baking with blueberries. This bread is like a sweet quick bread.


  • Self-rising flour
  • Bananas
  • Condensed milk
  • Blueberries

Self-rising flour: Self-rising flour is flour that is already pre-mixed with baking powder and salt. It saves a few extra preparation steps so I love having it stocked in my pantry. If you don’t have any self-rising flour, it is also easy to make your own. You just need to combine all purpose flour, baking powder and salt.

Bananas: Bananas and condensed milk act as an egg substitute. The bananas add natural sweetness and make the bread very moist and tender. You will want to use very ripe bananas and they will need to be mashed before using them.

Condensed milk: Condensed milk provides sweetness, replaces the butter and oil and also helps to create the structure for the bread. This recipe uses full fat sweetened condensed milk.

Blueberries: Fresh blueberries are folded into the batter to give the bread its blueberry flavor.

How to Make Blueberry Bread

  • The bananas and condensed milk are first whisked together until uniform.
  • The self-rising flour is added in and gently folded in with a spatula. The key is to make sure you don’t overmix the batter. Overmixing the batter will result in the bread developing a dense layer when it bakes up.
  • The blueberries are then gently stirred in until they are evenly mixed in. The batter is then poured into your prepared loaf pan and baked for about one hour.
  • The bread can be enjoyed as is or you can also drizzle icing on top. I made an easy lemon icing to drizzle over mine.

Bread Texture and Sweetness

This bread has a texture like traditional sweet quick breads. It is soft and tender, similar to a cake though not quite as light or fluffy as cake. The bread is sweet but not super sweet.

  • 1 1/2 cups (338 g) mashed very ripe bananas
  • 1 (14 oz/397 g) can sweetened full fat condensed milk
  • 2 cups (265 g) self-rising flour see note before starting
  • 1 cup (133 g) fresh sweet blueberries


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Add mashed bananas and sweetened condensed milk to a large mixing bowl. Whisk until the two ingredients are fully mixed.
  • Add the flour and use a spatula to fold it into the batter. Be careful not to overmix. You may feel the need to use a whisk or to mix the batter very hard, but doing so will cause the bread to have a dense layer at the bottom when it bakes. Just gently fold until all the flour is incorporated and you don't see pockets of flour in the batter.
  • Add the blueberries and gently stir together until evenly combined.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 55-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. The loaf should also be golden brown on top and if you apply light pressure to the surface, it should bounce back.
  • Let bread fully cool and then slice with a bread knife. If desired, you can drizzle the bread with glaze before slicing and serving.


  • Self-rising flour: There are 2 main kinds of self-rising flour sold in the US. One that is a lower protein flour (2 grams per 1/4 cup serving) and one that has a regular amount of protein or the same protein amount that is in all purpose flour (3 grams per 1/4 cup). Brands like King Arthur Flour and White Lily make the low protein flour. Brands like Gold Medal and Amazon Fresh contain a regular protein amount. The amount of protein affects how much liquid is absorbed. For this recipe, a regular protein self-rising flour was used. If you have a self-rising flour with low protein, I recommend you make the homemade self-rising flour below for this recipe because otherwise your batter will be too wet.
  • Homemade self-rising flour: Combine 2 cups of all purpose flour, 3 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Whisk to evenly combine.
  • Optional lemon glaze: Add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to a medium bowl. Add 1 tbsp of lemon juice and whisk until powdered sugar is completely dissolved. Start with just 1 tbsp of lemon juice and if the glaze is too thick, add a little more. If you prefer a thinner glaze, add more lemon juice.
  • This recipe works best with ripe, sweet blueberries.
  • The estimated nutrition does not include the optional glaze.

  1. Is it possible to use the gluten free Kng Arthur measure for measure flour? And create that into the self rising flour you mentioned?

    • Sorry we haven’t tested it with KA’s gluten free flour so we’re not sure if it will work well with this recipe

  2. Quick and easy recipe saves me time.

  3. So, I can’t use frozen blueberries? I’ve never seen fresh ones where I live.

    • We haven’t tried with frozen but because frozen berries have more moisture, it may not work in this recipe
