Can I use frozen Blueberries instead of fresh Blueberries in bread?

Yes, you can use frozen blueberries for this quick bread recipe if you are not able to get your hands on some fresh blueberries from the supermarket.

Allow the frozen blueberries to thaw overnight and then drain the excess liquid.

Gently toss the blueberries with 2 teaspoons of the flour mixture to prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom while baking and add to the batter.

Another option is to add the frozen blueberries to a colander and rinse with cold water, until the liquid looks lighter as it drains.

Place the blueberries on some paper towels and dry them really good.

Then gently toss them with 2 teaspoons of flour mixture to prevent them from sinking while baking and add the batter.
