Blueberry Buttermilk Breakfast Bread


There are times in my life when I just need to bake.  As in, if I don't break out some flour and sugar I might just have a meltdown.  Strangely enough, those moments seem to come when we are really busy or I'm not feeling 100%.  I guess baking is such a stress reliever that that's what I fall back on to bring inner peace and well being. :)


Jack came down with a cold recently and of course, I ended up with a cold as well.  Clearly, being sick means that I need to bake something to make all of us feel better.  Makes sense, right?  It's logical, I promise.  :)


I came across a photo of this delicious bread and knew instantly that I wanted to make it. I also knew that it wouldn't be eaten only for breakfast.  James would eat it for dessert, Jack would eat it for a snack, and I would just...eat it.

This blueberry bread is more like cake because it's fluffy, sweet, slightly dense, a little spongy and all around perfect.  This truly didn't last long in our kitchen and I can promise that it probably won't last long in yours, either. :)  It comes together quickly and easily and the reward is a delicious "bread"(cake) that you can eat for breakfast!
