Chip Mom’s Kitchen #45: Blueberry Creamcheese Bread

Posted by

For a lot of folks, holidays involve family (for better or for worse). I always spend my holidays with family, although mine is what you might call… “non-traditional”.

For instance, each Easter involves an Iron Chef style cook-off with a secret theme/ingredient. This year, the secret theme is “The Letter B“. So Buzzfeed brought to me…

Blueberry Beer Cheesecake Bread!

Difficulty level:
Newb           |         Apprentice        |         Journeyman         |         Master

Super simple, super delicious! I’m going to need to make a second one…

Quest Items:
1/2 C powdered sugar
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract

2 1/4 C self rising flour
1/3 C brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 C milk
1 C Blueberry Ale (can substitute Blueberry Flavored Water)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 C blueberries

Musical Accompaniment:

Illustrated Guide:

For this one, we’re gonna need about Tree-fiddy.

Butter your pan in a way that would make Paula proud.

Whip together your softened cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Once smooth, set the mixture aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and the brown sugar.

Add in the wet ingredients: egg, butter, vanilla, milk, and blueberry ale. Once whisked smooth (like a thick waffle batter), stir in the blueberries.

Time to put it all together!

Add half the batter to the bread pan, and then layer the cream cheese mixture on top, making sure not to push it down into the batter.

Add the rest of the batter on top; then pop it into the oven for 40 – 45 minutes!

Let the bread rest and cool, top with powdered sugar, and then devour.

Lastly, remember, Chip Mom luvs ya!

There’s always that person that’s super hard to shop for gift-wise. The person who says they don’t want anything. The person that doesn’t really need anything.  So you know what Chip Mom does then? Duh. I bake! It’s my father-in-law’s birthday and I’m making…

Chip Mom’s Kitchen #42: Grandma’s Trademark Cookies

Posted by

Pretty much every family has a trademark dish. For some folks, it’s something to sweat over the stove for (I’m looking at you, egg based puddings) or something as simple as the perfectly made grilled cheese sandwich (My mom used a spatula to spread on the butter!), but today I’m making a gift for my Grandpa. That means I’m making…
