I always love keeping a quick bread on my counter. They are the perfect snack, go well with coffee in the morning, or after dinner when you want a little something sweet, but not too sweet. It goes well with milk, coffee, or hot tea.

Quick bread, such as this homemade blueberry orange bread or my Mom’s banana bread, make a nice accompaniment to a lunch salad. I often make quick bread to give new neighbors or to bring as hostess gifts when invited by friends or family.

This bread gets its subtle orange flavor from orange juice and zest. You can use store-bought or fresh juice. I used fresh since I had an orange for the zest.

Whenever I make blueberry muffins I sprinkle sugar on top. It’s something my Mom always did. Though I didn’t add it to the recipe, I did add it to the top of this bread.

I came across this delicious bread while looking for recipes to make for our school’s faculty and staff at the end of the year. I like to take a tray of goodies in to thank them for a great year.

I don’t want everything to be chocolate or sweet so I try to make a variety. Having just picked blueberries this homemade blueberry orange bread was ideal.
