Buttermilk Blueberry Bread


Want an amazing breakfast recipe that can be made the night before and cooked the morning of? Here is a wonderful recipe for a buttermilk blueberry bread! A favorite at my house!


½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
7/8 cup* + 1 tablespoon sugar**
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour (set aside 1/4 cup of this to toss with the blueberries)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 cups fresh blueberries
½ cup buttermilk


* 7/8 cup = 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons
** This 1 tablespoon is for sprinkling on top



1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cream butter and 7/8 cup of the sugar until light and fluffy.


2. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Meanwhile, toss the blueberries with ¼ cup of flour, then whisk together the remaining flour, baking powder and salt.


3. Add the flour mixture to the batter a little at a time, alternating with the buttermilk. Fold in the blueberries.


4. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan (or something similar) with butter or coat with non-stick spray. Spread batter into pan. Sprinkle batter with remaining tablespoon of sugar. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes. Check with a toothpick for doneness. If necessary, return pan to oven for a couple of more minutes. (Note: Baking for as long as 10 minutes more might be necessary.) Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving.

*You can make the batter the night before and store it (unbaked in the pan) in the fridge. The next morning, pull it out and bake as directed!
