What You'll Need

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, 13 1/2 ounces
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 2/3 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

How to Make It

  • Grease and flour a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan; set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Make a well in the center and set aside.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine beaten egg, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract; add to the well in dry ingredients. Stir just until batter is moistened.

  • Fold in lemon peel, blueberries, and chopped pecans. Spoon into prepared loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 60 to 75 minutes, until a wooden toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the loaf.

  • Cool ​the blueberry bread in the pan on a rack. For best flavor, wrap it in plastic wrap or foil and store in the refrigerator overnight.
