Orange Blueberry Breakfast Bread

You've gotta make this Orange Blueberry Breakfast Bread! It's so delicious, lightly sweetened and easily gluten-free. Served with orange mascarpone frosting. 

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and dried spices. 
  3. Mix eggs, oil, maple syrup, orange juice, zest, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl until well combined.
  4. Add in egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir until just combined. 
  5. Wash and dry blueberries, then roll berries in extra flour (to keep blueberries from sinking) and fold into batter.
  6. Lightly spray a loaf pan, then pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle almonds on top. 
  7. Cook for 45-50 minutes, or until bread is lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  9. While the bread is cooking, prepare the spread: mix together the softened cheese,  powdered sugar, orange zest and juice and vanilla extract. 
  10. Slice bread and serve with orange-cheese frosting. 

Notes

I tested this both with all-purpose flour and gluten-free flour (Cup for Cup) and I preferred the all-purpose version, though the gluten-free option works. I think the gluten-free option was more crumbly than the all-purpose version.
