Easter was fast approaching, and I wanted to bake something different, something I had never tried before. I was looking for something with fruit that was on the lighter side of baked goods.
After browsing through Pinterest, I found this recipe from Joyous Apron and I decided to give it a try. After making some slight modifications, this blueberry bread came out wonderfully. It was one of the best blueberry desserts I'd ever had. The recipe was easy to follow and it was relatively quick to make for a bread recipe.
It was one of the best blueberry desserts I'd ever had.
Why we love it: This blueberry bread is extremely moist, light, and fluffy. The texture of the bread combined with the crumb topping makes it a little piece of heaven. It's similar to a coffee cake, but with blueberries! It made a great breakfast snack for the next 3-4 days after we made it. The recipe was easy to follow and it was rel
atively quick to make, especially for a
bread recipe. It also made enough that we were able to bring slices over to friends and still had a lot leftover for ourselves. It pairs great with a glass of milk or cup of coffee.
Modifications: I used a different crumb topping recipe, my personal favorite from Damn Delicious, because I felt as if the one this recipe provided was too soft and didn't have as much "crumble," as I would like. It also didn't have as much of those thick chunks you typically get with a crumb topping, and that's the best part! The crumb topping from Damn Delicious is damn near perfect (see what I did there ;-)), so opted to use that one instead. I kept the rest of the recipe the same, except I used two loaf pans instead of the one 9x5 loaf pan but it came out just as great!
Notes for next time: I would consider using the crumb topping I mentioned before in place of the one provided. I'll do that again the next time I bake this. I'll also line the pans with parchment paper next time instead of spraying with non-stick spray because I had to flip them over to get them out, and some of the crumb topping fell off and made a mess. Also - be sure you follow the recipe instructions when it tells you to coat the blueberries in flour! This is so important because it'll prevent your blueberries from sinking to the bottom.
