Take-out Tuesday, Blue Raspberry Bread with Orange Glaze

It’s nice to have a coffee cake or bread on hand for an easy weekend breakfast.  I made this Blue Raspberry Bread so the fishermen could grab a slice before they headed out on the high seas for the catch of the day~

It’s a rainbow of colors and flavors


This is a “quick bread” that you can whip up in a matter of minutes, with staples you probably have on hand,  and a cup of fresh berries


Mix all ingredients, except berries,  together with a fork in a large bowl, until just moistened and combined


Pour 1/2 of batter into a greased loaf pan


and top with 1/2 of berries


Repeat layers and submerge berries with the back of a spoon and bake in a 325 oven for 55-65 minutes until done~

Use a cake tester or long toothpick to make sure the center is done as the edges will be done sooner


While bread is baking, make the orange glaze with sugar, orange juice, butter and vanilla


Adjust consistency by adding more orange juice or sugar until you get it just right~ you want it to drizzle but not run away!

Let cooked cake rest for 15 minutes and remove from pan.  Poke holes all over top with a toothpick and slowly pour glaze over all

    Wow, Jenna. This looks so good! Love that gooey sugary glaze, too. I did notice the platter and thought you had somehow smeared sauces made from colorful foods on the plate first. Ha! See? I know what a genius you are – that was feasible!

    That’s a big fish!

    I’m definitely going to make this sweet bread. It looks wonderful!

    Anxiously waiting for my bread to come out of the oven! I have one question. In one copy of your recipe you have a 350 degree oven and on my printed version it has a 325 oven. Since I’m a novice baker, I’m a little confused. Which is better?

    • oops sorry, it depends on your pan. Darker pans use 325, glass or white 350. With any baked good check for doneness before the end of baking time, as some ovens cook hotter than others. Always err on the side of slightly under to insure moisture. Hope this helps!
