Best Blueberry Bread

Blueberry Bread

Blueberry bread with just four ingredients (no, I’m not counting salt and water).  How can this be! It’s the magic of the loaf that is moist tender and deeeish!

No Yeast Bread

Other no yeast bread recipes that I know you’ll love are my Easy Peasy Bread. Yes, it’s made with kefir milk. Magic happens again with this bread! 

And, be sure to try the Quick Date Nut Bread. I’ve had hundreds of folks make it, and only one, I think, has not been anything but over the moon with this recipe! 

Blueberry Loaf

The really cool thing about this recipe is that you have the total option of using blueberries or not. 

The bread will be fabulous with or without them. 

Now, this bread has no sweetness to it other than the natural burst of blueberries. That’s a good thing. Most of us need to reduce our sugar intake!

Easy Bread Recipe No Yeast

What I love about this bread is that it can be prepared in about 15 minutes. 

Yep, a mixing bowl, the ingredients, let it rest a few minutes, then pop in the oven. 

Nothing easier!

Bread with Sour Cream

I love sour cream and using it in this bread recipe takes it over the top texture wise. 

The added fats and acid work magic! Now, don’t skimp on the sour cream. Make sure it’s whole milk. No low fat. 

Also, I’ve not tried sour cream alternatives, plant based or another milk other than cow’s milk.

You can certainly give it a try, and, please let me know your results. 

Sour Cream Rolls

There are options with the dough.

If you want to make rolls, then I suggest you dollop about one-fourth cup of the thick dough on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet for baking. Be sure to leave about two inches between rolls as I believe they’ll spread out as they bake.

You could also try with a cupcake pan and put the dough in cupcake holders. This would allow the bread to bake without spreading out. 

Bread Made with Sour Cream

Sour cream adds so much to this bread. 

The fat content helps make the bread more moist and rich. 

Fat tends to shorten gluten strands and that results in more tender bread. 

Be sure to let the bread cool completely before pulling out of the bread pan. Yes, you’ll still get some ‘drop’ in the bread, but it’s still going to be amazingly delicious!

How do I love to eat this bread?

First of all, I love to butter a slice then put it under the broiler in the oven (about 10″ from broiler) and let it melt, sizzle, turn the edges of the slice a dark golden brown and even make the blueberries drip a tad bit. 

Another way to eat this bread? Make French toast. Now don’t soak it too long. It’s already super moist and leaving it in the egg + milk mixture will make it fall apart. Just quickly coat it then put in a hot buttered skillet for cooking. 

Of course, you can always just slice it and eat cold turkey. As I’ve said, it’s not sweet, it’s a healthy flavor in each bite! 

Sour Cream Blueberry Loaf

Sour cream adds a really rich taste. And, each bite you take you’ll feel this texture and taste on your palate. 

Each slice is soft and moist and there’s a very faint acidic taste that’s pleasant to the palate.

  1. What would be baking instructions if I were to use an 8x 8 pan?

    1. Hi, Anu, a lot of this is kind of playing it by ear w/centermost doneness of the bread. I’d use a 6-8″ wooden skewer to test for doneness in the center. Since the pan is larger, I think you’re going to need less time, I’d start checking at about 35 to 38 minutes. Hope this helps, and please let me know, luv! xoxx ally Oh, one more thing, it’s best to use FRESH blueberries. Frozen have too much liquid in them.

        1. Oh, gosh, how nice of you! I’d LOVE to see your loaf! Can you share on IG or FB? That’s so awesome Mary! oxx ally

  3. Is there another flour you can use for your blueberry bread? I try to stay away from white flour, and can you use full fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream? Thank you Ally you are an amazing lady love watching you on instagram. Wishing you the best of luck with your move!! Thank you! Nancy

    1. Nancy, luv, you could certainly try a 1:to:1 GF flour like Bob’s Red Mill. Be sure to use a heaping TBL of baking powder. For sure, try w/full fat Greek yogurt, I think it will work. Please let me know! You’re my #1 ‘tester’! xoxx ally
