Ah, blueberries! As Samuel was grousing about picking these splendid little morsels, I pointed out how God must love us to hang these sweet little beauties from bushes for us to come along and pluck for our delight. I had intended to take some photos at the blueberry farm but forgot my camera in the car. But this is just some of what we brought home.
Leah picked through them after I washed them then bagged and froze most of them.
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup milk
1 cup blueberries
1 tablespoon flour (for dusting berries)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons oats
2 tablespoons chopped pecans
1 tablespoon flour (for topping)
1 tablespoon softened butter
Butter a loaf pan well and dust with flour.
In a medium bowl, toss the blueberries with the 1 tablespoon flour. This keeps them from sinking to the bottom of the loaf.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and cream cheese.
Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
In a medium bowl, I used the same one I tossed the blueberries in (I don't like to do dishes), combine the brown sugar, oats, pecans 1 tablespoon flour and the 1 tablespoon butter.
Bake for 1 hour or until pick comes out clean.
