Blueberry, Poppyseed Bread W/ Orange Glaze

Cassie *


A very moist delicious bread. This makes five small or two regular sized loaves.

There is such a burst of orange, you get out of the glaze, that you don't need much orange flavoring to the bread itself, I didn't want to take away from the Blueberry flavor..mmmmmmmm enjoyed mine with a hot cup of coffee...

I think my boy would rather have this for his birthday; than a cake!

How to Make Blueberry, Poppyseed Bread W/ Orange Glaze


  1. Gather ingredients.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  3. Sift all dry ingredients together in a large bowl; add the remaining ingredients; except for blueberries.

    I mixed all of the other ingredients together, then added to the flour mixture.

    Stir well; making sure everything is well combined.
  4. Grease and flour bread pans.

    Pour mixture into prepared bread pans; sprinkle blueberries on the tops of the mixtures evenly.
  5. Press slightly into dough with a spoon. (This should keep them from all sinking to the bottom)
  6. Place in oven and bake large pans for about 50 minutes. Small pans for about 30. Bread is done when it is a golden color and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  7. When bread is almost done baking. Combine all glaze ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  8. Cook until sugar dissolves. Stirring often. Set aside.
  9. Allow bread to cool for 10 minutes in pans before removing.
  10. Pour glaze over bread, spreading with a knife or a spoon.

    This is so moist and delicious, my son's favorite!
