⁉️ FAQ

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

What does yogurt do in baked goods?

Yogurt adds extra moisture and makes baked goods like cakes, cupcakes, and quick bread moist and tender.

My blueberry bread is so dark. Did I burn it?

If you followed the directions, you probably didn’t burn it. This bread will get very dark on the outside. That’s okay!

Do I have to line my loaf pan with parchment paper?

You can try spraying your pan with non-stick spray, but we highly recommend lining it with parchment paper instead. It ensures the bread absolutely does not stick, and it makes it much easier to remove it.
