I was craving something with bread and sweet. I didn’t want to take the time to make soda bread even if it only takes 30 min. So I pulled out a mug and used some microwave fu.
I choose blueberries cause I started craving them recently and found no one makes blueberry pie or cobbler anymore. Sad, but not defeated I took my bag of frozen blueberries and made yummy.
- 1 mug
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- Butter, Lard or Olive oil
- 1 and cup flour
- Salt, only a tiny bit
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup sugar or 1/8 cup agave nectar
- 1/2 tbsp on baking soda
Coat the mug with butter, lard or oil. Mix lemon juice and milk and let it sit for minute. This can be replaced with buttermilk if you keep it around but the lemon and milk work just fine. I haven’t tried this with Soy or Almond milk. This does not work well with hemp milk.
Mix milk & lemon juice with the flour, baking soda and salt. It should be solid but sticky ball, it should not drip. If it seems drippy add a little more flour. Put the ball in the mug and stick it in the microwave for one minute, thirty seconds. DON’T GO OVER THIS TIME. Otherwise the loaf will burn. If the loaf is still raw after this, pull it out of the microwave and let it cool for five minute. Then put it in for 30 second bursts not exceeding another minute thirty.
Let it cool then run a knife around the edge. The bread should pop right out. You will not get the crispy top with this method of making soda bread (cause that’s what this is).
In a blender blend blueberries and sugar. I use agave nectar instead of sugar these days, but both will work. I had frozen blueberries around but fresh will work too. Place mixture in the microwave for one minute and then stir.
Break up the bread and pour blueberries over it. The End. Now eat!!
