Blueberry pull apart bread is loaded with fresh blueberries and drizzled with an easy-to-make glaze. You’d never know it was semi-homemade.
In case you hadn’t guessed, my love of blueberries has turned into somewhat of an obsession.
This is my fifth blueberry recipe this month and I’m still not finished.
My favorites so far are my blueberry lemon sweet rolls and blueberry muffins.
However, this blueberry pull apart bread is quickly becoming a close second.
Not only do I love the amazing blueberry flavor, I love that it’s so easy to make.
Simply start with thawed frozen bread dough, spread with filling, and stack in your bread loaf pan.
You’re going to lose some blueberries from your stacks, but that’s totally OK!
Just toss them on top and you’re good to go.
After 30 minutes of baking, you may need to cover with tented foil to prevent the bread from burning.
Let your bread cool for about ten to fifteen minutes, but no longer. It may be harder to remove from the pan after that.
While you are allowing your blueberry pull apart bread to cool, make your glaze.
It’s important that you use softened butter. If you forget to take some out like I usually do, no worries. Just pop it in the microwave for a couple of seconds.
Literally two seconds. Too much longer than that and you’ll have melted butter on your hands.
Now, while your bread is still slightly warm, go ahead and drizzle on the glaze. You can go light like I did, or you can just pour it all on.
You could even make some extra glaze and serve it on the side for dipping.
My blueberry pull apart bread was inspired by this fabulous bacon cheddar pull apart loaf that my good friend Laura from Pink Cake Plate made.
