Blueberry Ginger Bread - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Blueberry Ginger Bread is one of our favorites! If you love blueberries you will love this bread. It’s super easy to make and wonderful with a cup of coffee. We love it right out of the oven but it keeps well too. There is something about the blueberries with the ginger that gives this bread a wonderful taste. Plus it’s made with buttermilk which keeps it nice and moist.

Blueberry Ginger Bread Ingredients Needed:

Butter or margarine, softened


Molasses (I used sorghum, can use any kind)



All-purpose flour


Baking soda





Fresh blueberries (can use frozen)

Walnut pieces

This bread would also make a wonderful gift during the holiday season. The spices really gives it a holiday flavor too.  We love the combination of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg.

  • In a mixing bowl cream butter, eggs, and sugar together.  Add milk and molasses and continue mixing. Add flour, baking soda, salt and spices and mix well.  Fold in blueberries.

I make this in two loaves because it is easier to slice. This bread is so light it tends to crumble if you make one big loaf.
