This blueberry muffin bread recipe is so soft and moist and just loaded with fresh blueberries! If you love soft, moist blueberry muffins, you’ll love a slice of this blueberry muffin bread!
I love making easy blueberry muffins in the morning. I mean, it’s like cake. For breakfast.
And errbody knows that blueberries are a superfood. I don’t exactly know what a superfood is, or why there is no space between the two words (Hello, grammar, where are you?), but they are a big deal apparently.
So, let’s just get on the superfood blueberry train. But let’s skip the muffins and head straight to a loaf of bread.
This blueberry muffin bread is seriously so good! A slice of this, a smear of butter, a cup of coffee…what more could you need at breakfast??
How to make blueberry muffin bread:

Grease a 9×5 loaf pan. We use a ceramic pan, but a metal loaf pan works just well.
Cream together butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy and then beat in an egg and vanilla.
Mix in the dry ingredients and then fold in the blueberries. Use a rubber spatula to fold the blueberries in gently, so as not to break them up too much.
Spread the batter into the pan and bake for about an hour. Your house is going to smell amazing.
Making the glaze:
The glaze is completely optional, but we love the the little touch of sweetness it adds.
You’ll just whisk together powdered sugar and milk until it’s the consistency you prefer. Add more powdered sugar to make it thicker and more milk to make it thinner.
