Blueberry Bread: good any time of year- the secret is frozen blueberries!
So this recipe brings back memories, this is one of the first recipes I tried a few years ago when I started to get into more homemade items! In fact, I have used it so often I forgot where I found it. I scoured the internet today but I am still not able to find the original creator.
With that said I have made a few adjustments to the original I found online. I use buttermilk powder verse real buttermilk. Buttermilk powder lasts a lot longer than regular buttermilk, just keep it in the fridge and you are good for a while! Keep in mind since you are using powder you will need to add extra liquids in. For the blueberry recipe below I have
noted the powder vs. actual buttermilk.
I also have switched over to frozen blueberries versus fresh. There is absolutely nothing wrong with fresh blueberries, I just like working with the frozen berries as I find it is a little easier. Either way, remember to lightly coat your berries with a small amount of flour- this will prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the bread!
Lastly, I almost always leave off the glaze (just a personal preference) but feel free to glaze it with the one posted. Or you could also use sprinkling sugar for a different effect. Personally, next time I bake this I might try and use a lemon glaze and see how that turns out!
This is a favorite of my husband's and a frequent request! Enjoy!
