Blueberry Bread

Cooking with Kids

Children love to bake. They can help gather the supplies needed, measure the ingredients, mix, and pour the batter when making this easy blueberry bread recipe. This blueberry bread is great to eat with breakfast or as an after school snack. Although the recipe suggests letting the bread to rest an hour before eating, my charges gobbled it up right out of the oven. Here's what to do:

You Will Need:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice

What to Do:

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together flour and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir in blueberries.

2. Whisk together sugar and next 5 ingredients in a medium bowl until thoroughly blended. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until blended. Pour batter into a lightly greased 8 1/2- x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan.

3. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour).
