Orange Blueberry Loaf

Since I made this Cinnamon Stresuel Bread, baking bread is becoming fun for me, and I ended up baking more breads than cakes these days. One day as  the Oranges are on sale in Sprouts, I have bought a big batch with out realizing in the same week hubby is on Business Trip. Kids and Me fully enjoyed the freshly squeezed orange juice for couple of days and then we got bored. So at the same time I have a pint of blueberries that are pending in the fridge and quickly remembered the saved recipe a while ago with this fruit combination.. ( By the way this is the recipe I cut and clipped from the Orange Juice Carton :-)).
Orange Blueberry Loaf

The same week happened to be a big release week at work and our team  is putting lot of hours to get the work done, so I just took this loaf as a sweet gesture to the team and every one enjoyed the freshly baked loaf with fresh fruits, right from the oven. Corn Meal and Orange Juice adds a southern 'Texan Touch' to this loaf.  Here I am saving the recipe for you, Njoy!

Fresh Orange Juice - 1/2 cup
Fresh Blue Berries - 1 cup
All Purpose Flour - 2 Tbsp
All Purpose Flour - 1 3/4 cup
Corn Meal - 1/4 cup
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - tsp
salt - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 6 Tbsp
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Egg - 1
Orange Peel Grated- 2 tsp

  1. PreHeat the oven to 350F. Grease and flour one  8 x 3 loaf pan.
  2. In a small bowl toss the blueberries along with 2 Tbsp Flour.
  3. In a medium bowl mix the corn meal, baking soda, baking powder, remaining 1 3/4 cup flour
  4. In a Large Bowl beat the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. ( about 3 min)
  5. Add Egg and beat well, add orange juice and orange peel. 
  6. Add the flour and beat on low speed until well blended. Stir in the blue berries.
  7. Now pour this mixture into prepared loaf pan and bake for 55 to 60 minutes
  8. Take it out once the top is brown color and Cool on a rack for 5 min.

Slice the bread into 1 inch thick loafs and enjoy this Yummy and Fresh Fruity Bread with the crowd.

Note:  If you have noticed the orange spots, they are formed because of the grated orange peel and it adds grate taste. You can zest it with Zester, I have just used my peeler, roughly peeled the orange.

I am sending this to
Miz Helen's Full Plate Thursday
EKat's Friday Potluck
Lisa's Sweets for Saturday.

Take care until next time

  5. Thank you for your wonderful comments.
    @Lisa: Thanks for the invite, I will definitely stop by and link up.
    @Radhika: Hmmm to substitute blueberries, may be you can use pineapple. ( it gives some tropical taste to the loaf). Bluberries they burst while getting baked, that gives very uinque flavor and texture.

  6. @Radhika; Just remembered, Orange and Carrot combination also would be very good. In this recipe you can substitute 1 Cup Grated Carrot for Blue berries.
