Mixed Berry Loaf

I missed baking! I had mentioned how I had to cut back because it was getting a bit expensive for my limited wallet, but I couldn’t resist today! I scavenged through my pantry and (barely) found all the ingredients I needed to make a delicious mixed berry loaf to have with some tea!

You will need:

  • 9×5 in. loaf pan
  • Baker’s Joy Spray
  • 1/2 Cup – butter, softened
  • 1 Cup – sugar
  • 2 – eggs, large
  • 1/2 Cup – milk (I used fat-free)
  • 1 Teaspoon – vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 Cups – Flour (I used regular)
  • 1 Teaspoon – baking powder
  • 1 Cup – mixed berries, fresh or frozen (I used Publix brand frozen strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries)
  • For the (optional) topping: cinnamon and sugar, to taste.

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Using an electric mixer, with a whisk attachment and large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy.

  •  Beat in both eggs, milk, and vanilla extract.

  • Carefully fold in mixed berries.

  • Mix together sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over top.
  • Bake at 350F for 50-55 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
  • Place loaf pan on a wire cooling rack and allow it to cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from pan onto wire cooling rack to allow it to cool completely.

I was also very inspired and made some iced tea! I always try to have a pitcher of this in the fridge. I don’t drink soda at all so this is a nice alternative to water! I steeped 8 black tea bags in a pitcher of boiling water for 3-5 minutes. I then removed the bags and placed the pitcher in the fridge and allowed it to get nice and cold!
