Recipe of the Week!!

This week's recipe is inspired by the incredible blueberries I bought at the grocery store on Sunday! They are delicious--Cody and I have been snacking on them ALL week and we still have so many left! I stumbled across this recipe at the blog A Recipe A Day

Blueberry Orange Bread

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
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 350ยบ.

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.

ENJOY--Let me know how yours turns out!!
