❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

This blueberry loaf cake will become one of your favorite recipes for using the blueberries you have on hand.  You can use fresh or frozen, and you don’t have to thaw them before making this cake.  I usually use fresh blueberries in this recipe, but both will work.  This cake makes a great dessert with some whipped cream or ice cream on top with coffee or a yummy snack with milk.

  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Butter
  • White granulated sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Milk
  • Fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Extra flour for dredging blueberries

SWAPS

You could swap out the blueberries for other berries, like blackberries or raspberries in this recipe. The sweetness may change as those are more tart berries.

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

You will notice from the photos we added a powdered sugar glaze to this cake. You don’t have to add it but we like it. You could easily sprinkle powdered sugar on the top.

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Whisk together the flour and baking powder.  In another bowl cream the butter, sugar and eggs with a mixer.  Add vanilla extract and milk.  Combine with flour and mix till the ingredients are all wet.  Fold in blueberries that have been dredged in flour with a spoon.  

Step 2
Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with cooking spray and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 60 to 65 minutes or until center tests done.  Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.  Makes 1 loaf cake.

⭐TIP

I do dredge the blueberries in flour to keep them from sinking in the loaf cake. It has worked fine for me and you can see from the photos they are not at the bottom of the cake.
