Blue Berry Bread Recipe
this recipe makes 2 large loafs of blue berry bread, and tastes wonderful with the heavy cream. The batter will mix up really quite thick but you can spread in bread pans easily. The 2 loafs lasted about a day in home!
5 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups of sugar
2 big table spoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cups of real melted butter/or softened
1 1/2 cups of your choice of nuts, such as walnuts chopped slightly or chopped up fine depending on what you like.
2 cups of heavy cream
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
3-4 cups of fresh blue berries or you can use the frozen blue berries
Heat the oven to 350 degrees, grease and flour your large loaf pans or I made this in a bundt cake pan then you will just get one large loaf
Mix up the the dry ingredients first then add the butter and nuts, cream, eggs vanilla, gently add the blues berries, the dough gets a bit thick and stiff but it will work, then after it is mixed and thick spoon into the loafs even though its thick you can work it and spread in the loaf pans. It bakes for about an hour and 20 minutes.
Let cool about 10-12 minutes for cutting with a bread knife.
