Blueberry Bread for breakfast...

This is an old recipe from the 70's that I have recently rediscovered while going through some old recipe files. DH loves this for breakfast, it's supposed to make one loaf but I put it in two loaf pans to make a thinner loaf. DH thinks the crust is the best part and a thinner loaf gives him more crust.


Blueberry Bread

1/2-cup butter
1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1-tablespoon vanilla
1/2-teaspoon vinegar
1/4-cup milk
2 cup sifted flour
1-teaspoon baking powder
1/2-teaspoon soda
1/4-teaspoon salt
8 ounces frozen blueberries

Mix the margarine and cream cheese in a bowl, cream well. Add the sugar gradually and cream well. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla and vinegar to the milk and mix well.

Stir dry ingredients together. Remove 1/3 cup of flour mixture from the bowl, remove blueberries from the freezer and place them in the bowl with the removed flour mixture. Stir well to coat the blueberries with the flour.

Beat the remaining flour mixture and the milk mixture, into the creamed mixture a little at a time beginning and ending with the flour. Fold the remaining flour and blueberries into the batter just until combined.

Turn batter into a well-greased and floured loaf pan and bake in a 350 oven (325 for dark, coated, or glass pans) for 1 hour (I start keeping a close watch at 45 minutes). A toothpick inserted into the middle of the bread will come out clean when done.

Note: I use two pans to make thinner bread. My husband thinks the crust is the best part and the thinner loaf gives him more crust.

If you are trying to cut down on fat, you could substitute quark for the cream cheese.

I'll bet it would make outstanding French toast drizzled with a blueberry sauce.

That still leaves the 1/2 c of butter...I need to consider what I am willing to substitute.

I think coconut butter is supposed to be a heart healthy fat.
