Blueberry Orange Bread

There are some great blogs out there with blueberry recipes on them right now. One that I stumbled across the other day is called Welcome to Prosperine written by J.K. from Missouri. Her blog is much like our farm blog - a farm journal with snippets of every day life thrown in. She gracefully has allowed me to share her Blueberry Orange Bread recipe with you. Seeing as how I have about a gallon of fresh blueberries hanging out in the 'fridge, I think I might try out this recipe this weekend. Oh, and of course I'll take pictures.
P.S. With only two tablespoons of melted butter in it, this bread is very low fat.

Blueberry Orange Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 tablespoons grated orange peel
3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, combine egg, orange juice, water, butter and orange peel. Add to dry ingredients just until combined. Fold in the blueberries. Pour into a greased and floured 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack.
