Happy Friday! Any fun plans for the weekend?

I’m hoping to squeeze in a few mini photo sessions (did I tell you that I’ve started doing portrait photography? It’s so much fun!)

But before I can get to my weekend, I have to get through the Farm Days field trip with my daughter’s class…. 😩.

Maybe even as you’re reading this, I’m likely trudging through animal mud with a baby strapped to my chest, a handful of kindergartners at my side, and sneezing my way through horse dust.

I am not an animal person. I know I just lost about half of you, but it’s the truth. I’m not. No, I don’t even like your cute puppy. I mean, I’m not going to kick it while you’re not looking or anything. But I’ll kind of pretend to sort of half pet it and then spend the rest of our conversation hoping your dog’s hair doesn’t make my eyes swell up or give me itchy hives up and down my arm.

I swear, I really am a nice person. I just don’t do the animal thing.

And I’m not really a kids-that-aren’t-mine person for that matter (ha! and I’m only barely a kids-who-are-mine kind of person!)

So basically, what I’m getting at is this. Farm Days with my daughter’s kindergarten class is my own personal version of parental hell. And I would so much rather be planted on the couch with a book and a warm loaf of this blueberry bread.

Just sayin. 😉

Moving on….

This bread is so spring time to me! It’s sweet and fluffy and packed full of juicy blueberries. Remember back when I had a weird thing with the texture of blueberries and could only eat them from a can and in muffins?

Thank goodness this Berry Cheesecake Trifle came along and totally changed how I feel about fresh blueberries! Just think about all the yummy things I’d be missing out on 😱.

This bread would be so good with a lemon glaze! But it’s also amazing on it’s own, smothered in butter, fresh and warm out of the oven with a glass of milk and a good book. It’s the perfect spring time, Saturday morning breakfast :)

I hope you spend at least part of this weekend curled up on the couch with a thick slice of Blueberry Bread. Enjoy!

Blueberry Bread

This soft and moist blueberry quick bread can be mixed up so fast! Packed with blueberries and vanilla flavor.

Ingredients:

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 cup milk

3 tbsp vegetable oil

3 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

4 tsp baking powder

1 cup fresh blueberries

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Whisk together the eggs, sugar, milk, and oil.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, vanilla, salt, and baking powder. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until batter is almost formed but a few streaks of flour remain.

Fold in the blueberries.

Scrape the batter into a 5x12 loaf pan lined with parchment or foil and lightly coated in cooking spray (it is very important to use the correct size pan; too small of a pan could result in needing to over bake the loaf which will result in drying out the bread).

Bake for 55-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool before slicing.
