Blueberry Bread
This easy, moist blueberry bread is a great way to enjoy fresh blueberries, or make this quick bread with frozen berries.

Cook Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 2/3 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


Grease and flour a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan; set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Make a well in the center and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine beaten egg, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract; add to the well in dry ingredients. Stir just until batter is moistened.

Fold in lemon peel, blueberries, and chopped pecans. Spoon into prepared loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 60 to 75 minutes, until a wooden toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the loaf. Cool blueberry bread in pan on a rack. For best flavor, wrap and store overnight.

blueberry bread, Member jillnigro

I thought that 1 T of baking powder was abit excessive but I added it anyways. The bread really rose! I used buttermilk instead of regular milk because I find that it makes things more moist. The bread is good...probably better if you wrap it and wait 24 hrs...but it is not the best blueberry bread recipe I have.
