How to Make Blueberry Bread
Warm breads out of the oven always have the enticing aroma to bring a family together. Why not make this homemade blueberry bread recipe with an optional streusel topping to lure the family out of bed in the morning?
When I bake bread, it usually vanishes in one sitting with my family. If I bake a couple batches of this blueberry bread, then I can save some for a quick snack or breakfast later on in the week. I highly recommend making a double batch! ;-)
Who knows, maybe you'll even get a piece before it disappears!
Preheat the over to 425°F and butter two bread pans. To do this, take a napkin or a cloth and evenly coat the inside of the pans.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt together.
Add the butter, sugar, and eggs, and mix the ingredients all together until well combined. Then add the milk and vanilla, and mix again.
Fold in the blueberries until just incorporated.
If you choose to top your blueberry bread with streusel, which I highly recommend, now is the time to prepare the streusel. Simply mix together all the streusel ingredients in a small bowl.
Pour the blueberry bread batter (split evenly) into the butter bread pans, and top with the streusel if desired. Then bake for 5 minutes at 425°F.
With bread still in the oven, reduce the heat to 375°F and bake for another 45 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the bread.
Freezing The Extra Blueberry Bread Loaves
You can also freeze this bread for up to 3 months if you end up with extra!
We like to slice it before freezing for easy access to a few pieces at a time! Then just place the slices offset into a ziploc baggie and freeze flat!
To Thaw: You can either place the bread in the fridge overnight, on the counter for a few hours, or pop a frozen slice into a preheated oven (350°) for about 5-10 minutes, depending on how warm you want the bread!
