This Blueberry Streusel Bread is delicious treat which is great for breakfasts, lunches or anytime!
Last week, I wrote a post on a new recipe challenge. I enjoy trying new recipes and making new foods, but sometimes we get into a food rut. I want accountability to try new foods, whether they are made for a family dinner or a side dish or a dessert.
Or in this case, a bread. A really, really, yummy bread.
I have many bread recipes and muffin recipes, but this one was different. This was a very thick, very flavorful bread. The Blueberry Streusel Bread was eaten quickly with many requests for breakfast. It would be great for breakfast or in school lunches with or without jelly or peanut butter on it.
I would advise cutting it into slices and freezing it right away. Otherwise if your family is anything like mine:
It will disappear right under your nose.
My family can eat a loaf a bread like no other. At a speed like no other. Unfortunately, only the older ones who could see over the counter could contribute to the disappearing blueberry streusel bread. The younger one who can’t quite make it to counter top level asked me for “bread Mommy?” “I have bread?”
It was heartbreaking to share the truth with him; that his siblings ate it all. The life of the fourth child. 😉
**Please Note** I updated the recipe on June 21, 2016 to place the bread into two greased loaf pans. I had some readers say it spilled over into their oven in one loaf pan. You can place the batter into to greased pans or if you like a taller, thicker bread, you can fill the loaf pan up about 2/3 full, then take the rest of the batter and place in greased muffin tins for muffins. You can prevent accidental spill over that way.
