Who else loves blueberries? This recipe is easy. The hard part is not eating too much at one time. It is so delicious!
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1/2 cup butter (at room temperature)
- 2 large Eggs
- 1 tbs Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 cup skim milk
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 2 cup Flour
- 2 tbs Baking Powder
- 1 1/2 cups blueberries (frozen)
- 1-2 tbs Sugar decorating sugar is best
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9 in baking loaf pan.
- On low speed in a mixing bowl, cream the butter.
- Slowly add the sugar and mix until it is "fluffy."
- Add the vanilla then add one egg at a time.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder (this is the dry mix) and set aside.
- Mix the milk and buttermilk together and set aside.
- Add 1/3 cup of the dry mix and 1/4 cup of the milk mix to the batter. Once mixed, add another 1/3 cup and 1/4 cup. Continue until all mixed in.
- Set aside 1/2 cup of the blueberries.
- Pour 1 cup of the blueberries into the batter. Carefully stir by hand.
- Pour the batter into the baking loaf pan.
- Carefully sprinkle the rest of the blueberries on top of the batter and with a spoon or your hand, lightly push them down into the batter. Most will still be poking out - that's okay! They will sink still.
- Sprinkle the sugar across the top.
- Bake for about 60 - 65 minutes. Top should be brown. Check if the middle is baked. If not, then cover in foil and bake an additional 8 minutes and check it.
- Bread is done when a knife inserted in the middle comes out "almost" clean.
- Let cool for 15 minutes before serving or removing from the pan.
