Blueberry Bread

Make someone's day with a warm loaf of blueberry bread. This recipe can be prepared and in the oven in a few minutes. A loaf of quick bread like this makes a great surprise gift for a neighbor or friend. As long as you're baking, might as well bake one for yourself, too.










Blueberry Bread

1 cup butter, softened
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup blueberries

Glaze

1 cup confectioners sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9" x 5" loaf pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture. Beat only until combined. Remove from mixer and fold in blueberries. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for about 40 minutes or until bread tests done.

To make glaze, combine confectioners sugar and milk. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over cooled bread.
