The Best Blueberry Streusel Bread

Golden Streusel Topping – Made with sugar, light brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, flour, and melted butter, this topping holds together while baking and makes the perfect addition to this bread. Make the streusel topping first, then chill it in the refrigerator while mixing up the blueberry bread.

Blueberry Quick Bread – Flavored with melted butter and plenty of vanilla, this easy bread tastes just like your favorite blueberry muffins. Buttermilk and Greek yogurt ensure a moist and tender bread, and plenty of fresh blueberries are a must. Be sure to use an aluminum-free baking powder to prevent the bread from turning blue!

Fresh Blueberries – Sweet summer blueberries give this quick bread the best flavor. Out of season, you can use frozen blueberries (add to the batter without thawing first). Frozen blueberries may add additional moisture and extend the baking time by 5 to 10 minutes, so plan to keep an eye on the oven.

Vanilla Glaze – Sweet and buttery, this quick vanilla glaze is made with melted butter, salt, vanilla, powdered sugar, and milk. Once the bread is completely cool, drizzle with glaze and let set before slicing and serving.

The BEST blueberry streusel bread! This easy blueberry quick bread features a golden streusel topping and delicious vanilla glaze.


Streusel Topping

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Blueberry Quick Bread

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang around the edges; spray lightly with nonstick spray.
  2. For the streusel topping, combine sugars, cinnamon, salt, and flour in a small bowl. Add melted butter and mix in with a fork until completely incorporated and streusel is crumbly. Chill until ready to use.
  3. For the bread, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside 1 tablespoon of flour mixture to toss with the blueberries. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
  4. Combine melted butter, buttermilk, Greek yogurt, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl; add to flour mixture and fold in just until almost combined. Toss blueberries with reserved flour mixture and gently fold in.
  5. Spoon batter into prepared pan and smooth with an offset spatula; sprinkle with chilled streusel. Tap pan sharply to reduce air bubbles.
  6. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until bread is golden, springs back to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes before using the parchment overhang to carefully lift bread from pan; cool completely on wire rack.
  7. For the glaze, whisk together melted butter, salt, vanilla, powdered sugar, and milk in a small bowl. Drizzle glaze over bread and let set before serving.


Baking powder: Use an aluminum-free baking powder to prevent the bread from turning blue
