SIMPLE BLUEBERRY LOAF CAKE

Blueberry loaf cake is so easy and a delicious cake.

This blueberry loaf cake will become one of your favorite recipes for using 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 the 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.

Blueberry loaf cake is wonderful with your morning coffee.

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, softened

1 cup white granulated sugar

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup milk

1 1/3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

1 tablespoon extra flour for dredging blueberries

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 ingredients are all wet.  Fold in blueberries that have been dredged in flour with a spoon.  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.  Enjoy!

Note:  This cake really does not need a frosting or glaze but we like my recipe for powdered sugar glaze drizzled over this cake.  You could add just about any frosting as well.

  2. I took liberty with your recipe and substituted lemon extract for the vanilla extract.5 stars

  3. Jan Richardson says:

    How long would you bake if many small loafs pans? The size that you would give to many friends.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I don’t know.. I have never made it in small loaf pans.

  4. Do I use salted or unsalted butter? And can I use margerine instead of butter??

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      There is no added salt in this recipe, you can use whichever you like. I’ve never made it with margarine but you can try it!

  5. I just made this and it turned out tasty and SO good-looking–thank you for the recipe!

    I had some stuff I wanted to use up so I used gluten-free flour and substituted the milk for greek yogurt. It looked so good I didn’t wait till the cake was fully cooled down..5 stars

  6. Ms. Ernie says:

    Would this work with frozen cranberries?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, I would think that would work.

  7. VALERIE GATTEGNO says:

    Turned out just like it was supposed to. It was very good.5 stars

  8. Not so sure I know what you mean by dredging? Iโ€™m making this this weekend!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      When you dredge something in flour, it means to coat an item of food in flour. So you will coat your blueberries in flour. Hope that helps.

  9. Made this tonight and it turned out great! I used fresh blueberries and substituted soy milk for regular milk and it seemed to turn out just fine. I also made the glaze with soy milk. I would definitely make this again!4 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      A traditional oven. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Bridget Soraghan says:

    Couldn’t find my loaf pan (not happy about that) I used a foil pan instead.. Hope it turns out right? Also added frozen blueberries but didn’t add the flour to blueberries never did that before when I baked with blueberries? Again hope it turns out good.. So nervous…. Being that this bread looks so delicious! Thanks for sharing

  12. This is so good, and very easy. I’m glad I doubled the recipe!5 stars

  13. Can I substitute almond milk for the regular milk

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      You can try it, I’ve never made it that way, so I can’t say.

  14. Sounds easy and so good,I keep frozen Blueberries in freezer for baking muffins,cereal and smoothies…sure will try the Blueberry loaf5 stars
