Blueberry Quick Bread with Vanilla Sauce


Blueberry Quick Bread with Vanilla Sauce
8 servings

1 egg
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh blueberries
for vanilla sauce
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup butter, cubed

Beat egg, milk and oil. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture, beating just until combined. Fold in blueberries. Pour into a greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. For sauce, combine sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in cream until smooth; add butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Slice bread and serve with vanilla sauce poured over top. Delicious with coffee!

I just found your blog and I'm so glad that I did because I can see that we're *kindred spirits* in many ways :o)

The poems are delightful, the graphics wonderful and the recipes and accompanying photos make my mouth water.

I definitely plan to try some of the recipes when the heat and humidity in my little corner of the world disappear :o)

May the Lord bless you and yours,

Kelli,
We enjoyed it. The vanilla sauce was good and made the bread a little different than what we are use to. My husband really liked it. I am saving the last piece to go with his breakfast this morning!

This looks wonderful, but I have a question. Is there really no vanilla in the vanilla sauce? Thanks for any clarifications.

Hi Lisa,
Vanilla wasn't listed in the ingredients of the recipe that I used from Taste of Home. I wondered about that, too. I thought I might add some if it needed it, but after I made the sauce I liked the taste as it was. I'm sure it would be good either way. Thank you so much for visiting Heritage Schoolhouse! Have a wonderful day. :-)
