I like to make special breakfasts on the weekend for my husband and children. This recipe's sweet frosting really makes the already delicious blueberry bread even tastier. —Jean Nietert, Claremont, South Dakota

"I followed the recipe almost exactly except I dusted the blueberries with the flour before I added the flour to keep the blueberries from not sinking to the bottom of the loaf. Also, If you are using frozen blueberries do not thaw them first as this will discolor the entire loaf. The taste was pleasant with the addition of the orange and different as so many other recipes use lemon. Overall this was a good tea bread and I will make it again."
