Filled with blueberries, this breakfast bread also calls for lemon juice and lemon zest to enhance the flavors. A bit of cinnamon is a nice addition.
Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together flour and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir in blueberries.
Whisk together sugar and next 5 ingredients in a medium bowl until thoroughly blended. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until blended. Pour batter into a lightly greased 8 1/2- x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan.
Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour).
Blackberry Bread: Prepare recipe as directed in Step 1, substituting 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries for blueberries. Proceed with recipe as directed, increasing bake time to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
My daughter chose this recipe for a 4-H Food Show. It has a delicious flavor. My berries were a little dried which probably effected the moistness.
