Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottom only of 8x4-inch loaf pan. In small bowl, mix cardamom, cinnamon and ginger until blended. Set aside.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix flour, brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of the spice mixture until blended. Cut in 2 tablespoons cold butter, using fork or pastry blender, until mixture is crumbly. (Do not overmix.) Set aside.
  • 3
    Drain blueberries; rinse and set aside. In medium bowl, stir muffin mix, water, 1/4 cup melted butter, eggs and remaining spice mixture just until blended (batter will be lumpy). Gently stir in blueberries. Pour into pan. Sprinkle streusel evenly over batter.
  • 4
    Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes. Loosen sides of loaf from pan; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 5
    In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons of the milk until well blended. If too thick to drizzle, add additional milk, 1/4 teaspoon at a time. Drizzle with spoon over top. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For best results, cut loaf with a serrated knife, using a light sawing motion.
  • tip 2
    Mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Overmixing causes tunnels and gives the loaf a tougher texture.
  • tip 3
    Chai is the Hindi word for tea, which is often made with milk and spices, such as cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and pepper.
  • tip 4
    Make and bake this blueberry muffin bread the night before to serve for breakfast or brunch the next day.
