Blueberry Bread

Every year we buy fresh blueberries in 20-lb boxes and eat a lot of them. And then we're left with bags and bags to freeze. Not a bad thing. Tossing them into a blueberry bread for breakfast is awesome. We love to make this as 3 mini loaves and then eat them toasted. It is so good, and not too terribly sweet. --Mark


2 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1 cup milk
3 T vegetable oil
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Mix together beaten eggs with the sugar. Add milk and melted shortening or vegetable oil.

Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine mixtures, stirring only until blended. Carefully fold in fresh or frozen blueberries and broken walnut pieces.

Pour into greased 5 x 12 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 50-60 minutes. Cool in pan but try to turn it out of pan before it is totally cool. It will be easier to remove. Can also be made in a normal size loaf pan or can be made into 2 pans.
