I froze a big ziplock bag of blueberries over the summer and decided to use some up in this bread. It’s very good ~ you can really taste the orange and I love that. I think blueberry and orange is a great combination. I use 1 cup of the blueberries and I put them in the batter frozen.
Blueberry Orange Bread
2 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup water
2 tbsps butter, melted
2 tbsps grated orange zest
3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Preheat oven to 350º.
Combine the first five ingredient in a large bowl and set aside.
In another bowl, combine the egg, orange juice, water, butter and orange peel. Add to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Fold in the blueberries.
Pour into a greased and floured 8×4 loaf pan.
Bake for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes then remove from pan to a wire rack to finish cooking.
Makes 1 loaf.
