I love blueberries-they are my absolute favorite fruit. I like to snack on them, put them in yogurt, and of course bake with them! In the summer when fresh blueberries are plentiful, I love to make this easy blueberry bread recipe.
I love this recipe because it has the delicate, moist texture of a blueberry muffin but the addition of a cream cheese swirl takes it over the top. It’s truly a decadent quick bread that is perfect for breakfast but still sweet enough for dessert as well!
- cream cheese
- unsalted butter
- baking powder
- all-purpose flour
Step by step
- Preheat oven and spray a loaf pan with nonstick spray.
- In a large bowl or mixer, combine cream cheese, sugar, and egg and set in the refrigerator until ready to layer in the bread.
- In a separate bowl combine the butter and sugar and beat on medium until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
- Add vanilla, salt, and eggs. Mix to combine.
- In another bowl combine flour and baking powder. Add half of the flour mixture to the butter and sugar mix while mixing on low.
- Add half the milk, then remaining flour mixture, then remaining milk. the batter will be very thick.
- Add half of the thick blueberry bread batter to the pan and top with the cream cheese mixture, it is okay if the cream cheese mixture seems much thinner than the batter. (Picture 1 above)
- After layering the batter and cream cheese mixture, hold a butter knife vertically in the loaf pan and swirl to mix together. (Picture 2 above)
- For a prettier presentation, add a few blueberries to the top of the bread after swirling the cream cheese and batter together. (Picture 3 above)
Tips for best results
- Do not use low-fat cream cheese for this recipe, it will not turn out as good.
- This recipe can be made with frozen blueberries also, but fresh is preferred.
- Keep the cream cheese mixture in the fridge until you are ready to add it to the loaf pan to keep it from getting runny.
- The batter will be quite thick, this is okay! (See picture above)
