Blackberry Bread – A delicious quick bread ready in just 1 hour. Blackberry bread is a great way to use up extra fresh blackberries and it tastes great!
After spending the past few weeks slowly collecting ripe blackberries from the property, I finally decided to pull them out and use them. After using some of them in a batch of blackberry jam, I decided I wanted to use the rest in a baked good and after debating between muffins or a quick bread, I decided on a quick bread. Whether it is a batch of banana bread, zucchini bread, or beer bread, it always is so easy to eat and tastes great. I liked it so much that it might have disappeared in less that 24 hours… it’s that good!
