Rifling through the freezer I came across a bag of frozen blueberries from our summer picking extravaganza! With a household of two, my wardrobe does encourage whole pie eating, so I have to find some recipes that we can treat ourselves without gorging, under the bag of blueberries I also found already banana and zucchini bread, now I’m adding blueberry to the list.
Blueberry bread (adapted from bunsinmyoven)
Usually when you see “adapted” next to my recipes, this means I found something I wanted to make but didn’t quite have all the ingredients listed to pull it off… then comes the “experimentation” switching things out to accommodate my cupboard and not facilitate a 30 min drive to the grocery store!)
3/4 c raw brown sugar
3/4 c milk
1/2 c buttermilk
1/4 c vegetable oil
2 1/4 c white whole wheat flour
1 c oats
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 c blueberries
1 c chopped walnuts
Grease a loaf pan.
In a standing mixer beat the sugar, eggs, milk, oil, buttermilk together. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices, mix to combine. Fold in blueberries and walnuts. Mixture will be quite thick. Scrape into loaf pan, bake roughly 1 hour until a toothpick comes out clean.
smack on the butter and we have a winner.
