This is a great tea or breakfast bread good anytime but especially during the holidays. I got this recipe from a dear friend, Gwen Hill. Gwen was my pastor’s wife during the early 1980’s and was a fun loving lady with a great laugh. She was the mother of two beautiful daughters, Melissa and Danya. Gwen went to be with the Lord a few years ago, but is not forgotten. I remember that Gwen got this recipe from an Avon decorator plate entitled Blueberry Orange Nut Bread, made in 1982.
I loved finding this recipe in my file in her hand writing.
Blueberry Orange Nut Bread
3 cups flour
3/4 cups sugar (I changed this to 1 cup)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
2/3 cup orange juice
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup of chopped nuts
Mix well and bake in a oiled and floured loaf pan at 375 degrees until a toothpick comes out clean in center of loaf.
