Blueberry Mojito Tea Bread

Recipe by  

"I love mojitos and had some blueberries to use. Since I was in a baking mood rather than a cocktail mood, I created a way to use those flavors in a quick bread. We love it."

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 3x7-inch loaf pans. Whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, and baking powder in a mixing bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat the eggs, sugar, sucanat, grapeseed oil, half-and-half cream, rum extract, vanilla extract, lime zest, and spearmint with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture until just moistened, then stir in the blueberries, and pour into the prepared loaf pans. Sprinkle the tops evenly with the turbinado sugar.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • You can substitute any flours or sugars in the mixture as well as flavorings to suite your taste. We love the blueberries and lime together, but lemon is also good. This loaf keeps well if wrapped securely in plastic. It's never lasted more than 3 days in my household, but it stays nice and moist during that time.

Overall, this was a good start and a very creative idea, but rather bland. I made a few modifications to the recipe (see below). If I made this again, I would also use less sugar, the juice of the lime, and at least twice the mint. You can barely taste it at all. Modifications: 1. Used an 8" x 4" baking dish (couldn't find 7x3) 2. Mix of olive and vegetable oil (couldn't find grapeseed oil) 3. Added the juice from the zested lime (batter tasted a little bland) 4. Baked it for 75 minutes (!!!) Given that the baking dish I used was larger, I exepected a shorter cooking time, not more than double.

This is an interesting bread, and I went with it bc I wanted something different and had blackberries to use. Yes, I know, it calls for blueberries, but none of my blackberry recipes did it for me. I am puzzled by the comment that states that in a larger pan it should cook more quickly--smaller pans cook faster because there is less surface area to heat, hence the reason cupcakes cook faster than a cake. Regardless, I suppose it's counterintuitive, so it doesn't really matter why. I baked this in a single loaf pan and wouldn't recommend that--it's too much batter. I did notice that but went ahead anyway bc I was too lazy to redistribute. So, it took over an hour and a half to bake, and it overflowed, but whatever. I used lemon extract and zest and used rum instead of rum extract (I really thought I had that, but I don't!) and am glad for the turbinado sugar, which makes for a nice topping. For those not in the know (this includes myself, I had to google it), sucanat is a type of sugar processed to retain molassess. Not exactly brown sugar, but that's what I subbed. I doubled the mint and can definitely taste it. This is a unique and fun recipe. Thanks for sharing!
