The Bardic Chef: Recipe – Blueberry Loaf

Sweet breads are absolutely divine, and so many have gone without ever tasting one! The simple act of mixing in fruits, adding additional sugar to the dough… it can create a simple but delicious loaf that’s moist, crumbly, and is a perfect accompaniment to fresh butter. I need to be on the look out for large bushels of these berries, maybe grow them in a garden outside of my eventual restaurant, so I constantly have a supply for this.


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 cups of blueberries (or any berry)
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 tsp salt


Butter a 9-inch loaf pan. Thoroughly mix together the butter and sugar until it forms a cream paste, then add the milk and mix well. Add in sugar, flour, and salt.

In a separate bowl, heavily whisk the eggs until they’re foamy, and fold into the mixture until well combined. Mix in the blueberries gently.

Pour batter into the pan and cool for an hour in a 350 degree oven. Cool before removing from pan.
