Blueberry Bread

Here in Northern Michigan in mid July it’s blueberry picking season.  Every year when we don’t get a late frost  and we get plenty of rain there will be  loads of blueberries  on the Sand’s plains in the Upper Peninsula. My wife and I will pick 20 to 30 quarts each season. What do we do with that many blueberries?  We make our own blueberry jam and blueberry bread throughout the year.

Blueberry Bread 

Ingredients: 1 3/4 cups flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 egg, 3/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup oil and 1 cup blueberries.

Directions:  In a mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, and baking powder and give a quick mix to incorporate the ingredients.  Next, add the wet ingredients and mix well for 1 minute until all the lumps are gone.  Then fold in the blueberries to the batter.

Take two small loaf pans 6″ x 3″ and take a small amount of shortening and grease the inside of the pans and sprinkle each with a light flour coating.  Bake in a 400 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes.
