Now THAT'S-a-lotta blueberries! This bread is fantastic. Love the hint of lemon, the cinnamon and clove, and I did opt to "dust" my pans with cinnamon sugar. Oh my, YUM! I made the recipe as written and didn't change anything. My 2 loaves baked for 50 minutes, then I cooled on a rack for an hour before trying it. Then trying it again.....then again just to make sure LOL. Awesome recipe scootercrocker, thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
This turned out very good but I did have to add 1 cup of milk to get it to a batter consistency. I followed the instructions and found it to be way to stiff to fold in the berries. So I looked at some other recipes similar to this one and added the milk. I got 8 mini loaves. It was perfectly baked in the 45 minutes stated. I really liked the dusting of cinnamon sugar and the spices and lemon extract were just the right amount. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC 2011.
I thought this bread was really good.I substituted applesauce for half the oil and it still came out very moist.I also added some chopped walnuts which I liked.The only thing I wasn't too wild about was the lemon flavor with all the spices.I think I would have liked it better with vanilla instead but that's just my preference.
This is unique with all the spices, love the lemon flavoring in it. My only complaint is the amount of cinnamon. I wonder if that was a typo as I thought 2Tbsp was a little too much. Regardless glad I made it, will definately make it again
I made this in two 9" loaf pans and I think I would use 8" next time as it made a short loaf. But boy was it delicious! I used all four cups of blueberries, mashing one cup, which makes the bread a brilliant blue color. "Flouring" the pans with cinnamon sugar is a great idea. I also sprinkled some on top. If you line the pans with a doubled strip of aluminum foil, which overlaps the sides, you can use it as a handle to lift the bread right out of the pan onto a rack to cool without disturbing the topping. I greased the pan, lined it, greased the foil, and then sprinkled the insides. Easy, delicious. My kids loved it!
