How do you know when this bread recipe is done baking in the oven?

Once you’ve made up your batter and placed it in your prepared loaf pan, it’s time to pop it into the oven. Following the recipe below, you’re going to want to cook it for the allotted time. Then you’ll want to insert a toothpick into the center of the bread to see if it’s done cooking all the way.

If the toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, it means that the bread is done and ready to be removed. If not, it needs more time to cook.

Can you use frozen blueberries in this recipe?

In my opinion, this recipe does matter if you use fresh or frozen blueberries. The fresh blueberries are going to come out the best since because they won’t be thawing and letting out a ton of juice.

Frozen blueberries can be used but just know that there is a chance that your bread will be soggier than normal because of the thawing of the berry. To help alleviate the issue of too much juice or water, make certain that you’re folding in the blueberries and not stirring them once you add them in.

    Bread Instructions
    •Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
    •Make certain to grease your loaf pan.
    •Grab a large bowl, and combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
    •Next, use a different bowl and mix together orange juice, egg, water, butter, and orange zest.
    •Once that is done, take and stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until mixed.
    •Carefully fold in the blueberries.
