Blueberry Quick Bread


5 cups white flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter (6 ounces)
4 eggs
2 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups blueberries
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts (optional)


Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar together. Cut butter into flour mixture as you would when making pie dough. In a separate bowl, thoroughly blend eggs, milk, and vanilla. Add blueberries and nuts if desired. (If you use frozen blueberries, it’s better not to defrost them before adding to liquid ingredients.) Grease bread pans: five 6-½x3-inch or two 9x5-inch. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and blend together thoroughly but quickly. Pour batter into pans and put immediately into a preheated 350 degrees F oven. Bake for 60-80 minutes.


Makes 2 large or 5 small loaves
