  • 1/2 cup or one stick butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses I used sorghum, can use any kind
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries can use frozen
  • 1 cup walnut pieces


  • 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.
  • Spray 2 regular sized loaf pans with cooking spray. Pour half the batter in each pan and sprinkle the top with 1/2 cup walnut pieces.  Cook in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes.  Let cool 10 - 15 minutes in pan.
  • Remove, slice and enjoy!


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.
