Got The Blues

August 22, 2011

The berry blues, that is.  :-) 

Hi friends! Long time, no blog.  Sorry about that.  The stomach bug that I talked about on Wednesday kind of hung around for a while…a lonnnnnng while.  Having a stomach bug is the worst kind of bug when you usually blog about…FOOD!  While I know you probably really wanted to see my piles of saltines and plain broth bowls, I decided to keep them to myself. 

Luckily, I feel better now.  The weekend was relaxing, and yesterday, we picked up a surprise visitor—my mom!! She’s going to be staying with us for the next few days! 

I wanted to make something to welcome her to Huntsville, and this blueberry bread seemed like the perfect fit—it’s easy, healthy (well, it does have blueberries in it), and delicious!

Easy Blueberry Bread

Ingredients:

1 egg

3 tbsp. oil

1 cup milk

2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

2.5 tsp. baking powder

2 cups blueberries

Directions:

Beat together the egg, oil and milk.  In a separate bowl, combine the other ingredients.  Fold the flour mixture into the egg mixture slowly, not mixing any more than you have to until just combined.

Pour batter in a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for about 55 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Here are some pictures of the final product:

Delicious! This bread is sweet enough to pass for the dessert (preferably with some vanilla ice cream on top), but could also be served for breakfast. 

Hope you have a great Monday!

    I love easy “regular” recipes like this sometimes. I made chocolate chip muffins last week with no substitutes and just plain ole flour, sugar, butter. It’s nice sometimes to be basic 🙂

    Yikes!!! We must have had some of the same stomach ‘issues’ last week! Glad you’re feeling better. Enjoy your visit with your mom.

    Oh wow, that looks awesome. I’m thinking some almond butter would be fab with that as well. Sorry to hear the bug hung around. Not fun at all. Hope you’re much better this week.

    So the only time I have ever had a vicious stomach bug was after eating a bakery blueberry muffin. Seriously…can’t even see it without it making me queasy. The idea of blueberry bread sounds awesome and then I see it and I am like uh oh!

    The bread looks wonderful, anything with blueberries is a hit for me. 🙂

    I made a strawberry bread earlier this summer, and it was delicious. This looks just as good! Have fun with your mom!

    I made the blueberry bread a few days ago and it was delicious. It didn’t last long, so I made another loaf last night with 1 c. blueberries and 1 c. raspberries. (that’s all I had). It turned out amazing, as well. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Hope you and Ryan are settling in and enjoying your new house. Take care!
