Blueberry Orange Bread
Thanks to about.com for this great recipe...
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1/4 cup boiling water
* 1 tablespoon finely grated orange peel
* 1/2 cup orange juice
* 1 egg
* 1 cup granulated sugar
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries
* 1 teaspoon finely grated orange peel
* 2 tablespoons orange juice
* 2 tablespoons honey
Combine butter and boiling water in a small bowl; add 1 tablespoon grated orange peel and 1/2 cup orange juice.
In a mixing bowl, beat egg and granulated sugar with an electric hand-held mixer until light and fluffy.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt; add to egg mixture a little at a time, alternating with orange juice mixture, ending with flour mixture.
Fold in blueberries. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.. Cool bread in pan 10 minutes; remove to wire rack.
Combine 1 teaspoon orange rind, 2 tablespoons orange juice, and 2 tablespoons honey, mixing well. Spoon over hot bread; let cool.
