Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp grated orange peel
2 tbsp butter, cut up
1/4 cup boiling water
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup fresh blueberries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan; set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and orange peel; make a well in center and set aside.

Stir together butter and boiling water until butter is melted.

In a medium bowl, combine egg, sugar and orange juice; stir in butter mixture.

Add to the dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.

Fold in blueberries.

Spoon the batter into prepared pan.

Bake for about 60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cool 10 minutes.

Remove loaf from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

Wrap in foil and store overnight.

Makes 1 loaf (16 slices).

Questions, Comments & Reviews

*Frozen blueberries can also be used. Simply toss them in flour before adding to the batter (do not thaw first) and proceed as normal.
