Blueberry Loaf

Well, September has arrived! It is a perfect day to enjoy some homemade blueberry loaf.

I doubled the recipe to make two loaves, one loaf to enjoy now with family and a second loaf for the freezer. Lately I have tried to put some of my baking in the freezer so we don't inhale calories so quickly. This loaf is a bit like a pound cake, very moist and delicious.


Below is the recipe from allrecipes dot com, if you are interested. From the reviews and my own experiences I would suggest you test the loaf at 55 minutes, but it takes more like 60-65 minutes.


Blueberry Loaf Cake
Ingredients:


1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
TOPPING:
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Directions:


In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder; add to creamed mixture just until combined. Gently fold in blueberries. Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pan. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-55 minutes {or 60-65} or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
