Blueberry Orange Bread

I don't share a lot of recipes, mostly because when I attempt to take pictures of my food it looks awful. But today I made the most beautiful bread I've ever baked. Now the pictures don't do it justice, and that's because I'm a terrible photographer but I figured I'd share anyway.

I can rock a lemon loaf but that's about as far as my bread skills go. I have never made a decent loaf of banana bread in my life and most others are okay at best. But this one not only came out looking beautiful but tasting delicious!

Blueberry Orange Bread
2 tbs butter
1/4 cup boiling water
1/2 cup orange juice
3 tsp orange zest
1 egg
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup blueberries

Preheat oven to 325. Melt butter in boiling water. Add orange juice and zest, set aside. In seperate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In another bowl, beat egg and sugar until light and fluffy. Add orange mixture and mix thoroughly. Add flour mixture and stir just until blended. Fold in blueberries. Bake for 60-70 minutes

While bread is still warm, poke all over with a toothpick and then combine 2 tbs orange juice and 2 tbs honey. Brush mixture over warm bread.

  1. For this it's probably good we don't live near each other Bree, because I imagine I'd eat at least half, lol.
