Now that spring is here, blueberries are ubiquitous in grocery stores and supermarkets. There are several different ways to accentuate them, such as using them in muffins, pies, pancakes, or in this recipe – a blueberry loaf. Similar to banana bread, this loaf can be eaten for breakfast, a snack, or dessert. It is tremendously simple, fool-proof, and can be prepared in just one hour.

With mixer on low speed, add eggs one at a time, milk, and vanilla extract.
Add flour and baking powder, mixing on lowest speed just until all ingredients are incorporated.
Add in blueberries and fold with a spatula.
