Hey Guys!! Let's make some bread!! I am so excited, fall is right around the corner, and it's time to try new recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas. First up, Blueberry bread!!
2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
1/4 cup (50g) packed light or dark brown sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 cup (120g) sour cream, at room temperature
1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup (80ml) milk, at room temperature
1 and 1/2 cups (250g) fresh blueberries*
optional: 2 Crumb topping (see recipe note)
1. Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan or coat with nonstick spray. Set aside.
2. Whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.
3. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together on high speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. On medium speed, add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the sour cream and vanilla extract on medium speed until combined. With the mixer running on low speed, add the dry ingredients and milk into the wet ingredients and beat until no flour pockets remain. Fold in the blueberries.
4. Spoon the batter into the prepared baking pan. See note if adding streusel or blueberry jam swirl. Bake for 60-65 minutes, loosely covering the bread with aluminum foil at the 30-minute mark to help prevent the top and sides from getting too brown. A toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf will come out clean when the bread is done. Remove from the oven and allow the bread to cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack.
Crumble Topping: A crumble topping adds a lovely crunch. Simply combine 1/4 cup (31g) all-purpose flour, 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, then using a fork, mix in 2 Tablespoons melted unsalted butter until crumbles form. Sprinkle over the loaf before baking.
See you guys in the next one.. Let's get ready for Fall!!!!
