Blackberry Bread

I had some extra blackberries in the freezer & came up with this recipe to put them to use. It's not an overly sweet bread but it does hit the spot.

Blackberry Bread

3 eggs
2/3 c. softened butter
2 c. of sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
2 1/4 c. blackberries; chopped
3 1/3 c. flour
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350*

In a mixing bowl, cream together eggs, sugar, vanilla and butter.

In a separate bowl combine baking soda & flour.

Slowly add dry ingredients to wet mixture & mix well.

Stir in blackberries. Notice what pretty color the dough turns from the blackberries.

Pour mixture into 2 greased loaf pans (or mini loaf pans) & bake for 50 to 55 minutes for large loaf pans; 25-20 minutes for mini loaf pans or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

This batch made 8 mini loaves and 10 cup cake size muffins.
