Make this lovely blueberry bread late in the day just before the kids come home and have it ready with fresh butter and honey when they walk through the door. They will adore you for it. This is a quick bread, and so it comes together really, well, quickly. In fact, don’t over mix it to ensure best results. Quick breads need to be lightly blended so they rise well.
This recipe includes lots of blueberries in the mix. Get fresh when you can, although blueberries freeze well and can be used interchangeably with fresh ones. Frozen berries may fractionally increase the baking time. Blueberries are an excellent berry to encourage your family to eat great fruit. They are the second most popular berry right behind raspberries (another fabulous berry). And blueberries have lots of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories in them. They are also low in calories, low in sodium and cholesterol, and recent research suggests that they improve memory in older adults when eaten daily. So blueberries are a great food to get your family in the habit of eating.
This recipe comes together easily, and can even be made by a beginning baker. It does not even need a mixer to make it, and hand blending may even be a better choice for quick breads. That is because mixers can often over blend a quick bread and result in a flat loaf. This bread will taste fabulous fresh from the oven, and the next day can be eaten cold or toasted and served with bread and honey. Your kids will love this bread for its flavor and you will love it for all the goodness it delivers.
