adapted from Pinch My Salt
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup plain yogurt- I used Greek yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups frozen, or fresh blueberries
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
2-3 teaspoons orange juice
Mix together and pour over warm or cooled bread bread.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy- add eggs, one at a time and beat thoroughly. Stir in the yogurt, orange juice and orange zest.
In another bowl, mix the flour, soda, baking powder and salt. Add to creamed mixture and stir until flour is just combined. Gently fold in the frozen or fresh blueberries, taking care not to smash them. Batter will be thick. Pour batter into a greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Original directions say to bake 55-65 minute, but it took 75 minutes for mine. When done, cool for 10minutes in pan. Then remove bread from pan. Glaze while warm if desired. Have a big piece with a cup of coffee. Enjoy!
NOTE: The bread is rather crusty the first day, but softens some by the next day. Delicious either way!
