Lemon Blueberry Quick Bread Recipe



Lemon Blueberry Quick Bread Recipe Six Sisters Stuff

Happy Summer!
I can’t believe how quickly June is flying by! Why can’t January ever go this fast?! :)

I love all the fresh fruit that’s available this time of year . . . I went a little overboard with blueberries last week and needed to use them before they went bad (I had already frozen most of them, but wanted to do some baking with them too).

One of my favorite recipes is our Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake- it just screams summer. I was thinking that it would be yummy add the blueberries, but then started thinking about how it would be good as a bread. I played with the recipe a little bit and adapted it so that it could be made into loaves of bread instead of a cake (okay, let’s be honest – it’s kind of a “cakey” bread . . . but it’s amazing!).

The great thing is that it makes two loaves, so you can have one for yourself and one for a friend. This would definitely makes anyone’s day a little more sunny and bright!

(I used a white cake mix for this recipe, but you could easily use a lemon one too. I would still use the lemon pudding mix for the added softness that it gives the bread.)

Lemon and blueberry make the perfect combo in this bread- and there’s a secret ingredient that makes this bread so incredibly easy . . . a cake mix!
  • 1 (15.25 oz) white cake mix
  • 1 (3.4 oz) package lemon instant pudding mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Generously spray two 9×5″ loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a bowl, mix together dry cake mix, dry instant pudding mix, water, eggs, and oil until completely incorporated (if using a mixer, beat on high speed for about 90 seconds).
  4. Fold in blueberries, but be sure to not over mix (or else it will turn your bread gray).
  5. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the middle of a loaf of bread comes out clean (mine took about 45 minutes).
  6. Let bread cool in pans before removing.
  7. Makes 2 loaves (about 24 servings).

Easy Homemade French Bread Recipe

Easy Homemade French Bread Recipe from SixSistersStuff

This recipe is actually the first recipe I ever made all by myself.
I was an 8th grader and at my junior high school, we had a Home Economics class.

We learned to sew, cook, and other basic running-a-home jobs . . . I LOVED it. I felt as though I had found my calling in life. :)

One of my assignments was to make this bread and bring a piece of it to the teacher. I came home and worked so hard . . . it looked a little lumpy, but it tasted just the way it needed to. I have since made this many times and it’s still one of my favorites- mostly because it’s so simple.

I was at my mom’s house a couple weeks ago and found this recipe tucked away in her “recipe drawer”. It still had the homework due date on it (December 10, 1998) and is getting hard to read because it’s been used so many times. If you have never attempted to make bread before, this is a great place to start!

Easy Homemade French Bread Recipe
Recipe Type: Bread
Author: Six Sisters’ Stuff
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 14
This is the first made-from-scratch bread I ever learned – and it’s still one of my favorites!
  • 2 1/2 cups very warm water (I just use the hot water from my kitchen sink)
  • 2 tablespoons [url href=""]dry active yeast[/url]
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil (vegetable oil or olive oil work great)
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  1. In a large bowl, mix together water, yeast, and sugar until the yeast is completely dissolved. Add in salt, oil, and flour. Stir with a large wooden spoon or mixer until it becomes too difficult, then knead for two minutes on a floured surface.
  2. Spray a large bowl with non-stick cooking spray and place dough in the bowl. Cover with a dish towel and let it raise until it doubles in size (I usually place the bread in my kitchen window sill where there is sunlight and it’s a little warmer. I have found that on cooler days – like in the winter time – it sometimes take a little longer to double in size).
  3. Dump dough out onto a floured surface. Cut in half and shape into a smooth, worm-like shape (or a bread loaf shape . . . ha ha!). If you want to get fancy and make your bread look the way that it does in the picture, use a sharp knife and slice about 1/3 of the way down into the bread, opening up little cracks about 2″ apart. The cracks will separate more as they rise and bake.
  4. Place dough loaves on a greased cookie sheet and let rise again until doubled (about 25-30 minutes). Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
  5. Remove bread from oven and rub butter on top.
  6. Makes two loaves of french bread.

Equipment needed for this recipe:
Large Mixing Bowl
Large Wooden Spoon or Mixer

Make 6 loaves of Whole Wheat Bread in ONE hour!

I know that is a lofty promise, but it can be done (I know because I did it!).
(And yes, I know that there are only 4 1/3 loaves in this picture- it’s because we can’t stop eating it once it comes out of the oven!)
I love bread. I always have, I always will. I am a bread junkie.
Homemade bread is especially amazing! But . . . I am WAY too lazy to do it.
I also always snickered at the people who ground their own flour. Seriously, who has time for that?! Definitely not me!
Well, I am now eating my words.
This gal is grinding her own flour!
With three kids, a full-time job between this blog and our new site (My Recipe Magic), plus doing the cooking, cleaning, and other responsibilities of life, where do I find the time to make homemade bread?!
My husband pretty much thinks I am super woman.
I can whip out 6 loaves of bread from start to finish (that even includes grinding the flour, letting it rise, AND baking time!!) in about 1 hour!
Here is my secret: my Bosch Mixer.
I am not being paid to say this, but I was given a Bosch machine to try out and see if it would work for me and my lifestyle. I was so hesitant the first time I did it- I so wanted to prove them wrong and show them that someone like myself just wouldn’t have time to grind flour and let bread rise and get flour in every corner of the kitchen.
But then I saw how easy it is and once I made my first batch, my husband swore that he would never eat store-bought bread again (he also has made a couple batches of bread when I have been out of town, so if he can do it, anyone can!!).
I am going to share my recipe for basic Whole Wheat Bread that makes about 6 loaves in one hour using a Bosch Mixer:

Whole Wheat Bread
6 cups warm water (about 100 degrees F)
2/3 cup oil (canola or vegetable both work great)
2/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons SAF yeast (requires no pre-dissolving)
2 tablespoons salt
14-18 cups whole wheat flour (freshly milled from your NutriMill- or store bought works too!)

If grinding your own wheat, begin there. I love using a soft white winter wheat, but red wheat is good too. Grinding the wheat using a NutriMill only takes about 4 minutes and it only has one ingredient: wheat! :) It’s so good for you- in fact, the first time I made this bread, it took a couple of days for our bodies to get used to all the whole wheat goodness . . . let’s just say that our digestion systems were crazy for a couple of days! Ha ha! Amazing what good food will do to clean out your insides!
With dough hook in place on your Bosch mixer, place water, oil, honey, yeast, and 6 cups whole wheat flour in the bowl. Flip the switch over to “m” to incorporate.
Add another 7-8 cups of flour and salt and turn the speed on the mixer to “1”. Continue adding flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough cleans the edges of the bowl (takes just a minute or two). Continue kneading dough on speed “2” for another 6-8 minutes.
Oil your hands and a spot on a clean surface. Divide the dough into six equal portions and shape into loaves. Put into greased pans and let rise until double in size (about 20 minutes).
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes (internal temperature should be about 195 degrees and the outside will be nice and golden).

This recipe can be used to make monkey bread, breadsticks, cinnamon rolls, orange rolls, pizza dough, rolls, or you can add other things to the bread such as sesame seeds, oatmeal, cinnamon, raisins- basically anything goes!

Don’t have a Bosch machine? No worries!
Here is another Whole Wheat Bread recipe that doesn’t require any type of machinery!
I know that many of you are probably thinking that a Bosch mixer is a huge expense . . .
but the good news is that these machines are made to last a lifetime.
I have talked to many serious chefs and bakers (and some not-so-serious) and the Bosch is their favorite machine to use compared to other standing mixers.
You can read the amazing reviews on Amazon here.
Or, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me:
As I mentioned before, I am not being paid to write this post, but I was given a Bosch Mixer to try out and I can honestly say that I am never going back.
All opinions and statements are my own. :)
Happy Bread Making!

Tropical Banana Bread Recipe


The wedding has now come and gone . . . and Steph and Andrew are now on the sunny beaches of Hawaii for their honeymoon while the rest of us get to stay home.
I am seriously green with envy (but so happy for them at the same time).
I tried to invite myself along on their 10-day vacation to that island paradise, but they didn’t even consider it. :)

So, I am dealing with the sadness of having to stay here- the most un-tropical place on Earth (Utah is a very dry desert!)- by adding a little “tropicalness” to my life (I don’t think that tropicalness is a word, but I am still going to go with it).

My family loves banana bread and at the end of each week, chances are that we have some bananas that are perfect candidates for banana bread. I mixed it up this time by adding some of my favorite foods- pineapple and coconut- to my favorite banana bread recipe. The result was a smashing success and received rave reviews from my entire family! Add a little “tropicalness” to your life and your banana bread with this simple and yummy recipe. :)

Tropical Banana Bread
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup canola oil (or vegetable oil or applesauce can be substituted)
4-5 ripe bananas, mashed (about 2 cups)
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple, with juice reserved
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda. In another bowl, mix together the eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add in the pineapple, coconut and bananas and stir. Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and mix until they are just barely combined- don’t overmix. Pour the batter into two 8″x4″ greased loaf pans.
Bake for 65-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf of bread comes out clean. Let bread cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from pans and placing on a wire rack to continue cooling.
In a small bowl, mix together the reserved pineapple juice and powdered sugar. Drizzle over the top of the warm bread and enjoy!

Makes 2 loaves of bread.

Nutella Banana Bread

 Nutella Banana Bread Recipe SixSistersStuff
I buy a bunch of bananas every week, and they almost always go brown.  I usually make our Delicious Low Fat Banana Bread, but I knew I would absolutely love this Nutella Banana Bread from Oleana Boutique.  I’m officially a Nutella addict!

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana
1/3 cup skim milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 heaping cup Nutella 
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8×4-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda & salt.
3. In a separate large bowl, beat sugar and butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, milk and vanilla. Beat until blended.
4. Add flour mixture, beat at low speed just until flour is incorporated (don’t over mix).
5. Spoon Nutella into a small dish and soften in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Add 1 cup of the banana bread batter to the Nutella and stir until blended well. Spoon Nutella batter alternately with plain banana bread batter into the prepared pan. Swirl batters together with a knife.
5. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, it will seem a tiny bit undercooked but that’s what makes it good. Cool for at least 15 minutes in the pan, and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 1 loaf of bread.

Easy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

I love having a warm slice of fresh baked banana bread, but I love it even more when it only has 4 ingredients in it!  This is the easiest banana bread I’ve ever made!  I didn’t even have to pull out a single measuring spoon or cup.  The batter was in the pan and ready to bake before my oven was even heated up!

Easy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe:
(Recipe from Artsy Fartsy Mama)
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
2 eggs
3-4 overripe bananas
1 c. milk chocolate chips

Smash bananas in a large bowl, then add remaining ingredients and mix well. Batter will fill 2 small loaf pans or one large loaf pan. Spray pans well with nonstick cooking spray and pour in batter.

Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes for two small pans or 45-50 minutes for one large loaf pan.
