This should really be called, “Better Than Blueberry Muffins Bread”. It melts in your mouth and each bite has you already thinking about taking a second slice. I like to also call this “bribe bread”. Need something done? Want to kiss up to the boss? This bread will win everyone over! The ingredient that really sets it apart from your standard blueberry recipe is the almond extract. It adds a great nutty flavor, without overpowering it.
I’ve been making this recipe for years now. I like to savor it with a cup of coffee, or serve it as a dessert. It even makes a perfect gift for the holidays. A few years ago, I bought paper bread loaf pans and wrapped each bread in decorative cellophane. It was a great alternative to baking holiday cookies for the neighbors!

Stacey…..how much salt….???
Oops! I meant to take that out of the directions. I tend to omit the salt, but if you’re a salt fan, just a pinch. Enjoy!
Can’t wait to bake this bread! Thanks for your speedy response.
Hugs to your adorable Miss P!

How long would this last if I made it ahead of time and should I store in frig or at room temp? thanks!! looking for a way to use lots of frozen berries and this looks great!
Hi Carol! I’ve stored it room temperature (Just cover with cellophane) for up to 5 days. It also freezes well! Enjoy!
