Blueberry Swirl Bread Recipe

I often add fresh blueberries to quick breads and muffins when the berries are in season and have a lot of flavor, but blueberries in the off-season can sometimes be disappointing and not deliver the rich, jammy flavor that you want to get from a perfect blueberry. This Blueberry Swirl Bread is an easy to make quick bread that packs in a lot of blueberry flavor thanks to a flavorful blueberry swirl running through the center of the loaf.


2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled

1 cup sugar

1 large egg

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup plain greek-style yogurt

1/2 cup milk (any kind)

1/2 cup good-quality blueberry preserves


Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9×5-inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until well combined.
Whisk in 1/3 of the flour mixture, followed by the yogurt. Whisk in another 1/3 of the flour mixture, followed by the milk. Whisk in remaining flour mixture until no streaks of dry ingredients remain.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Dollop blueberry preserves onto the batter and swirl in gently with a bread knife.
Bake for 45-50 minutes, until the bread springs back when lightly pressed and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Allow bread to cool for 15-20 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 1 loaf.
