Today I wanted to share with a new recipe I have been working on – Blueberry Almond Bread. This idea came about after looking online for other breads to make. I usually make a loaf of one of these breads on Sunday and we grab a slice on our way out the door during the week. It is a great alternative to packaged bars but it is also very yummy! Hope you and your family enjoy it as much as we do 🙂
1/2 c. oil
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 c. flour
1 c. chopped fresh or frozen blueberries
2 TB. almonds (for topping)
In a bowl, combine the oil, sugar, milk, eggs and almond extract. Set aside.
In another bowl, combine the salt, baking powder and flour. Add to the oil mixture, stirring JUST till incorporated.
Fold in the blueberries. Pour batter into a greased 8″ x 4″ loaf pan. Sprinkle with 2 TB. of sliced almonds.
Bake @ 350° for 55-65 minutes, till middle is set (test with a toothpick). Cool 5 minutes in the pan, then take out of pan and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
