Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, salt and baking soda. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, orange juice, oil and orange peel. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blueberries and pecans.
  • 2. Transfer to two 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves (6 slices each).
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
