Blueberry Pull Apart Bread

“Blueberry Pull Apart Bread”

We love blueberries. By love, I mean we are kind of obsessed with them. They are just so tasty and easy to eat and store! When they go on sale, I buy extra and freeze them. There is alway a pint of fresh blueberries in my fridge. We have them in our smoothies, smashed up on bread instead of jelly, straight from the freezer as a snack, on the side of our eggs in the morning. Blueberry muffins, loaf cakes, tarts, whatever. Love them. Saturday morning my sweet, lovely, precious daughter…..woke me up at about 4:45 a.m. Ugh. I was dragging big time. She wouldn’t go back to sleep and I needed to do something that would keep me moving or else I was going to fall asleep standing. So, I thought about my blueberries. And I thought about those delicious looking pull apart breads that have been floating around Pinterest. You can see where I’m going with this….

Blueberry Pull Apart Bread. 

Now, I can follow a recipe no problem, but a seasoned baker I am not. So I had to hunt for at least a place to start with the bread. The rest, I figured, I could manage. I did find a recipe for blueberry pull apart bread over on the blog Le Petit Brioche. Christa had a recipe (with beautiful pictures, I might add) and it looked amazing.


I got lost when I was reading through her directions. I decided I could do it on my own, though. With her basic recipe, I modified the instructions to suit what I know about bread baking from my previous sandwich bread experiences. And it worked out amazingly! I do intend to try Christa’s version at some point, but for all of its differences, mine is satisfying and tasty as well. If you make this bread for yourself, be sure to share some pictures on our facebook wall! I just love to see what you all are up to in your kitchens.

I’m including some helpful process pics for you, so you can follow along and see what you should expect. It’s actually easy to make, but because of the rising times, it will take you a while. But hey, I had nothing but time on my hands at 4:45 a.m……
