Fresh Blueberry Bread

Blueberries are one of my toddler's favorite things to snack on...he also loves to help me in the kitchen so I try and include him as often as I can. So, when you have an excess of blueberries from the Farmer's Market or blueberry patch, tyou invite that cutie in to help make fresh blueberry bread (and hope he doesn't eat all of the main ingredient before you get it finished)! Watching him help in the kitchen and "sneak" bites of the ingredients is seriously one of the cutest things I've ever seen, though. I know, I am biased. : )

If you are a blueberry fan and enjoy the smell (and taste) of fresh baked bread, give this recipe a try... and include your munchkin if he/she is interested in helping out. It is a simple recipe and they will be so proud to measure, pour and stir!

What You Will Need
½ stick butter, melted & slightly cooled
1 egg

½ cup milk
2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
¾ cup sugar + 1 tsp, divided
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

2 cups fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step One
Whisk butter, egg and milk in a mixing bowl.

Step Two
In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients together (except the 1 tsp sugar). Slowly pour into wet ingredients and mix until all combined.

Step Three
Stir in blueberries, being careful not to break them. Pour into greased loaf pan and sprinkle remaining tsp of sugar on top. Cook for 50-60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean and top is golden brown.

Enjoy, y'all!
