Blueberry Bread


This bread smells amazing while it is baking in the oven! The cinnamon aroma fills the house making you wish the bread would just hurry up and be ready!!  It is like a really big blueberry muffin.  It was simple to make and tasted fantastic.  We had it for breakfast over the weekend.  I made the bread the night before because I'm not a early morning person - especially on the weekend. It is great heated up with butter slathered all over it.

(Printable Recipe)


  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups white flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp turbinado sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees and grease the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch loaf pan.

In the bowl of your mixer, add sugar, milk, oil, and eggs. Mix well. Mix in the remaining ingredients except for the blueberries and mix until combined. Fold in the blueberries.

Pour in the loaf pan and sprinkle turbinado sugar on top.  Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes and then remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.

  1. The bread looks very moist and would be really wonderful to go with some freshly brewed tea!

  6. I made this bread and it was very tasty but very crumbly. Is there something I did wrong, or something else I could try different???

  7. Just made this bread and it looks absolutely wonderful but taste very bland. It is just not sweet at all. Has anyone else had this issue? Any idea on how to increase the "sweet" taste?

  8. I made this bread today it was moist and yummy, my kids liked it even though it wasn't super sweet! If you like a sugary snack bread this isn't it but if you are like me and always cutting back the sugar in your kids goodies this is perfect! I would probably add some lemon zest or vanilla and more cinnamon next time. But overall it it was delish! Thanks! I will definitely make this again!

  9. Just made this and it took 15 minutes longer for the knife to come out clean. I am in metro Atlanta at the moment. I added zest of one lemon. It is moist and tastes good, but not sweet. If prefer sweeter add white sugar or honey. Great w/ coffee and flavored coffee creamer (for the added sweet.)
