Wild Blueberry Tea Bread

Dense/heavy and perfect for Brunch Tea or Late Afternoon Tea. I usually make this instead of donuts or something too sweet.

    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • 1 c. sugar
    • 1 c. milk
    • 1/3 c. melted butter
    • 3 c. flour
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 4 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 c. chopped walnuts or pecan
    • 1 1/2 c. wild blueberries (can use canned or frozen*)

Preheat oven to 350(F). Grease and flour two loaf pans. Beat together eggs and sugar. Blend in milk (this should be at room temp) and melted butter. Mix and sift flour with salt and baking powder. Pour liquid ingredients into flour mix; blend with a minimum of strokes. Fold in nuts and floured wild blueberries. Pour batter into loaf pans, filling only half full.

Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes until cake tester comes out clean. Make sure the bread is completely cooled before wrapping. NOTE: to the batter you can add 1 tsp. grated lemon rind or orange and/or various spices such as cinnamon, allspice, cloves, nutmeg. Serve plain or with cream cheese. Makes 2 small loaves.

* Do NOT thaw frozen blueberries before using.
