Blueberry Cream Cheese Loaf

When I get the urge to make a quick bread, I usually turn to banana bread or pumpkin bread, and I’m sure I’m not alone there. But the world of quick breads is so much bigger! Take this Blueberry Cream Cheese Loaf, for instance. It’s just as quick as a loaf of banana bread, but it feels a little more special and is full of bright blueberries and cream cheese. What I’m saying is, it’s well worth expanding your bread baking repertoire for.

Butter and cream cheese keep the crumb of this bread both moist and flavorful, while the blueberries add juicy bursts in every bite. The batter comes together in one bowl – first you cream together the butter, cream cheese, and sugar, and then you add the eggs and finally the dry ingredients.

You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries here, but either way, it helps to dust them in a bit of flour before folding them in. It keeps them from all sinking to the bottom. And if you’re having a blueberry loaf, you want a blueberry in every bite!

This recipe will give you two loaves, so you can opt to share a loaf or freeze it to eat later on. It wouldn’t be unheard of for those two loaves to just disappear real fast, though. This bread is just that moist and sweet and delicious.
