We love blueberries! Blueberry Pancakes, Blueberry Muffins and this Blueberry Orange Bread was a hit too. When I shared the Cake Mix Cookies last week, I shared with you how I bake for Nick’s Football Team every Thursday. I try to mix up what I take, so last week I decided to bake Zucchini Bread and Blueberry Bread.
Since we had just made a trip to the Farmers Market to buy blueberries, I thought it would make a perfect treat for the team. But, I didn’t have a recipe, so I quickly jumped on Twitter and asked my followers for a recipe. Thanks to Megan for helping me out! I clicked over to find this amazing Blueberry Orange Bread that she adapted from King Arthur Flour Magazine.
I changed the recipe a bit, using regular flour instead of whole wheat, because that’s what I had on hand. But you can certainly use either. The original recipe calls for Fiori de Sicilia, and I agree with Megan, I have no idea where to buy it. So I swapped it out for orange juice concentrate, because I didn’t have orange extract like she used.
The bread was a hit with the family as well as the Football Team. And I’ll have to say, this was the easiest quick bread recipe I have ever made. It went together in less than 5 minutes.
As I was typing this I just had to grab a piece, warm it up and slather it with butter. I happen to think, the bread would be great with a glaze on it too. Let me know if you try it!
I sliced the bread and served it on plastic platters in our team’s colors. They all enjoyed it.
Did you know blueberries are chock full of nutrients? What is your favorite way to enjoy them?
