Blueberry Loaf Cake


My two garden blueberry bushes are giving me an abundance of blueberries this year. I have a freezer full of gallon bags full of them. I thought I would try a new blueberry recipe. Although this looks like bread, it is actually a loaf cake. What a nice touch it was adding the cinnamon sugar topping giving this delicious and moist Blueberry Loaf Cake an extra burst of flavor.

  1. So easy! I will make it someday! This is much better than the market stuff! I don’t know why people go for the market stuff when there are so many easy recipes to make a healthier snack!

  2. The best !
    I do like blueberries – with marvellous memories of blueberries pies in Switzerland, with fluffy white eggs cover on the top.
    amitiés – merci 🙂

    • Do you put acid on your bushes? Buy a fertilizer that is for blueberries and hydrangeas and follow the directions and I bet next year you will get them. I use Miracid in the growing season and just an acid in the dormant months. In about 25 years of growing the same 2 bushes there was only one year I didn’t get blueberries and that was last year….the flowers were killed off by frost.

  3. just had delivered a Baristo coffee machine from Milan so will impress with real coffee and your cake idea made today.Thank you as blueberries from our forest are plentiful this year

  4. Lovely way to be coffee and cake in the garden at 8am already 78f. No wind blue sky no cloud going to get out warm again. Glad you too are motivated to invent recipes and enjoy all life can be

  5. I’m drooling just looking at the pictures. Something else for cheat day. One question, does it freeze well?

  6. received a message from the little mermaid perhaps being looking for all my life but do they exist.? I have had pork chops and creamed mashed potato with steamed cabbage with truffles .Nice old red wine and then homemade baked Alaska washed down with Italian desert pudding wine. Now ready to rest after six hours in water up to waist cleaning water Liliies . One hour with hens cleaning and feeding then an hour cooking .Worn out but wine revived me so rest then collect chicks newborn to house in runs over night with moms. Retired too young but working just as hard even so. Blueberry pie in freezer for dinner tomorrow when I work out waht to cook. Forests here full to brim of mushrooms ta moment so may just go picking as weekend brings the city out here so must have a bucket full tonight before all wil be gone. i need 12 miles of high wire fencing to stop them stealing from my plot. City people think that world outside belongs to them. im a gentleman but must agree one must fence all off or loose and sting. If some one knocked on my door saying if I pick a bucket for myself may i pick a bucket for you Sir. Now that would be civil and agreeable .Pick all you want bring me one bucket full thank you old boy for caring. Hens have more love and trust in me than people have .But then I love my friends, all English here, who I look forward to partying with.

    • I can’t imagine having that many mushrooms! I love mushrooms and they are not cheap here. I would be furious if city people picked any of my produce but I like your idea they pick for you and can have some! You are so active you will live to be at least 100! I love hearing about your day…..thanks!

  7. This looks delicious! I have to make it, but I’m going to leave the cinnamon out and put in lemon extract. Hopefully, it will turn out. Thanks for the inspiration!
