  • 4 Tbsp. Vanilla Bean Chai Drink Mix , divided
  • 3 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup half & half
  • Blackberry Syrup

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°. Combine first 2 ingredients and 2 Tbsp. Vanilla Bean Chai Drink Mix in a bowl; stir for 20-30 seconds. Spread batter into a greased 9 x 5 loaf pan. Pour melted butter on top. Bake 50-55 minutes until loaf is golden brown. Cool. Cut into 12 slices; cut slices into 1-inch cubes. Arrange ½ of the bread cubes in a greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Spread cream cheese cubes and blackberries over the bread cubes. Top with remaining bread cubes. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, half & half and 2 Tbsp. Vanilla Bean Chai Drink Mix; pour over bread cubes. Cover with foil; refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake covered with foil for 30 minutes; uncover and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until fluffy and golden. Serve with Blackberry Syrup. Tips: Bountiful Beer Bread can be made a day ahead. Substitute blueberries for the blackberries. Use 2 cups of milk and omit the half & half.

Tips and Hints

  • Mix it up by adding different berries like blueberries or strawberries!
  • Instead of using root beer, try lemon-lime flavored soda or even a berry-flavored soda.
  • Top with Blackberry Syrup or try blueberry or maple syrup. You could even offer up all of them as a choice for your guests.
  • Serve some additional berries on the side as toppers, plus some whipped cream!
  • This bake reheats well so you can give the kids a quick breakfast before school or you can take it to work for your breakfast.
