Blueberry Quick Bread
Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Do you typically go out to a fancy brunch or make brunch in? Every year we do something a little different. This blueberry quick bread would make for the perfect addition for a Mother’s Day brunch. I made this quick bread on a whim after my husband needed breakfast for work. Pre baby I would make him breakfast every morning or have a delicious baked breakfast item waiting for him in the morning.
My husband came home from work and was shocked. Not only was dinner cooking in the oven but he came home to the aroma of baked goods. I made this blueberry quick bread for him for breakfast. He was so excited to have a homemade breakfast for the next day. To be honest, we both were. And it felt so darn good to bake again.
This quick bread was “quick” to put together. I let my son, Ryder, feed himself some snacks in his highchair while I put this together. And then it took a good hour to bake. It finished baking just as my husband got home from work. After it cooled I sliced a piece of bread for me to “taste test”. The original recipe called for a vanilla glaze. This quick bread does not need it at all! It is perfectly fine just the way it’s made!
We devoured the quick bread in 3 days. To be honest, I think I might have consumed 3-4 slices in one day. It was so good my mind kept telling me to have just a few more bites. Oh, and Ryder loved this bread too! He doesn’t even like blueberries (the texture bothers him), but he loved this quick bread. So if your looking for a nice sweet baked good to make for breakfast or brunch (or heck dessert) this blueberry quick bread it the ticket!
