Blueberry Quick Bread

We were hungry for pancakes, but didn't want to fire up the stove, so we improvised this recipe to have something that tasted like blueberry pancakes as a mid-morning snack at work, but without the maple syrup and butter. We baked it the afternoon before, and chilled it overnight. It's simple, delicious, and packed with fresh blueberries.


  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dry pint fresh blueberries (frozen can be used, too, thawed)
  • Handful of flour to dust blueberries


  • In a medium bowl, beat the egg with the oil and water. In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients, and add the liquids.
  • Mix until the batter just starts to come together.
  • Dust the blueberries with flour, and stir in until they are evenly distributed.
  • Pour into greased 9 x 13 pan or round roaster
  • Place in preheated oven for about an hour, or until slightly browning on top.
