I have made this bread several times now, and it is absolutely delicious! I have used both Greek yogurt and sour cream. I use regular unbleached flour because I'm not a fan of whole wheat flour. I love the toasted pecans, which add much to the flavor of the bread. I cut the slices on the thick side so it doesn't crumble or fall apart. The bread is great lightly toasted and buttered. Good for breakfast or as dessert. One of the best recipes I have on file! Thank you!

I made this ussng a standard loaf pan and after ten minutes or so in the oven I smelled burning - the batter had risen and dripped down the sides of the pan and onto the oven. I scraped it all off and it baked okay after that, but certainly had a big hole where the batter split and ran down the sides. I wondered too about 4 tsps. of baking powder. Would like to try it again using sour cream - how much more would I need?

I tried blueberry-pecan bread. It tastes like salt before it's cooked and its not sweet after its cooked. It is just a little dry. Are we sure we're supposed to use 4 teaspoons baking powder? I have my doubts now.

I tried this with King Arthurs white whole wheat flour and it was really dry. I have only recently started using white whole wheat flour and noticed that the Loaf cakes are on the dry side. Is this normal ? Should I use less flour ?

I'd love to make this but, 3 cups of flour for a 9x5 loaf tin? is that correct?

It's correct. The batter fills the entire pan and poofs up while it bakes, but there isn't any spill over.

This bread is delicious. I was nervous that the batter was a little dry, but my husband reminded me that all of the moisture of the blueberries will make up for the dryness while the bread bakes. So true. A great recipe that I will make again! Thanks for sharing your mom's recipe.
