Blueberry Black Walnut Bread (Cake)

Total Time

This recipe began as a scout project back in the 1970's as a cranberry nut bread, but I prefer blue berries. Black walnuts have a distinct strong flavor, so don't use any more than recipe calls for.


  1. Mix ingredients together.
  2. Recipe makes two 4”x 8” loaves.
  3. Bake in 350° F oven for 45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Very good. I really didn't think this would work, as the mixture seemed dry, but it worked out great! Skipped the nuts and made 1 loaf and 1 mini-loaf pans -- love having mini loafs in the freezer for later. Thanks for sharing!

This is so easy and delicious. Next time I will use only one loaf pan and adjust the baking time accordingly. As a cake, I might even try a glaze such as Honey Glaze. Thanks, Acadia, for a bread/cake recipe that even DH loves! Made for Went to Market tag game.

What can I say about this recipe - but WOW! Great flavor and so easy to make. I used fresh blueberries. I didn't add the walnuts as we don't care for them. A wonderful bread, we had it nice and hot right out of the oven for breakfast. Thanks for the great recipe. Made for the Potluck tag.
