Calling all blackberry lovers! This blackberry bread is perfection! Made with fresh blackberries and bursting with blackberry flavor in each bite, it smells and tastes amazing!
When you see the color of the slices, you’ll know you need to eat this bread immediately. It’s deep purplish blue, just like the blackberry juice. No artificial coloring can produce this amazing color. It’s not the screaming fake blue or the unicorn purple – it’s a sophisticated color that only a true homemade berry goodness can achieve. Blackberry bread it is, made with real fresh blackberries.
Baked so deeply into the bread, the blackberries flavor it amazingly. Each slice is so fresh, and it smells so good you’ll want to put your nose inside that purple slice. Inhale the freshly baked cinnamon bread smell, take the slice greedily and devour it in seconds. There will be crumbs everywhere, PURPLE CRUMBS! Then eat up every crumb, ’cause those crumbs are so good they just can’t be wasted.
Blackberry bread is super easy to make – it’s a one-bowl recipe where you just mix all the ingredients, pour into the loaf pan and bake. This recipe makes a giant loaf of bread – make sure you have a big 9×5 inch bread pan so it fits 🙂 Or alternatively, you can make 2 smaller loaves for blackberry bread – eat one right away and freeze another one for later!
Are there seeds? You betcha there are seeds! Blackberries have seeds and they aren’t going anywhere 🙂 That extra crunch is part of this homemade bread’s charm. Plus it’s extra fiber!
Blackberry bread is the ultimate homemade goodness – eat it for snack, eat it for breakfast, eat it for dessert, eat it anytime! For more homemade fruit breads, check out my strawberry bread and apple bread – you’ll love them too!
