Blackberry Bread

I had some extra blackberries in the freezer and came up with this recipe to use some of them up. 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.

Cranky Grandma,

Thanks! I saw this widget on another site (Sandra's from Slow Cooking Thursday's) and loved it. So yes, I borrowed her idea.
