Bread Ingredients

  • 2 cups + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 cups blueberries

Glaze Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter melted
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • Instructions


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large bowl, mix 2 cups flour, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk your egg and sugar together. Then, whisk in the buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir to combine. Do not overmix.
  • Once the mixture is completely smooth, add in the milk. Whisk again to combine.
  • Toss your blueberries with 2 tbsp of flour. Pour the blueberries into the batter and fold them in carefully.
  • Grease a 9 x 5 glass baking pan. Pour the batter into the pan. Cook for 50-55 minutes. Check the bread. If at any time, it begins to brown too much, cover it with aluminum foil. To check to see if your bread is done, insert a toothpick into the middle. If the toothpick comes out clean, your bread is ready.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool.
  • In the meantime, make the glaze. Place the blueberries in a blender and blend until pureed. Combine the powdered sugar, melted butter, and blueberries. Whisk until smooth.
  • When the bread is cool, pour the glaze over the blueberry bread.
