Prepare The Batter

Before you begin, preheat your oven to 350° F. This recipe comes together fast, so you want the oven hot, once the batter is ready to go.

Place flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir or whisk them to combine. Once combined, add fresh or frozen blueberries and orange zest to the mixture. NOTE: If using frozen blueberries, do NOT thaw them before adding them to the mixture.

Flour, sugar, baking powder and salt are combined in a large bowl.Blueberries (fresh or frozen) and orange zest are added to dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, milk and vegetable oil together. Pour these wet ingredients into the flour mixture, and stir only until all ingredients have been combined. Do not over mix.

Time To Bake The Blueberry Breakfast Loaf

Pour the batter into a greased (bottom and sides) 9″ x 5″ x 3″ loaf pan. Place the loaf on the middle rack in the oven. Bake at 350°F. for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. The blueberry breakfast loaf should be golden brown on top once done.

Remove the pan from the oven, and let the bread cool, still in the pan, for 10 minutes. After it has rested 10 minutes, run a butter knife around the edges, then invert pan to remove the loaf. Transfer the loaf to a wire rack, and let it cool completely before slicing and serving.
