Blueberry- Cream Cheese Bread

I developed this recipe from looking at other recipes, in the hopes that I would have blueberries from my garden in time to create it.  Wishful thinking since my blueberry plant has not quite bloomed yet… This recipe is still just as delicious with store-bought blueberries 🙂

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BREAD:
  • ½ cups Butter
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 whole Egg Yolks
  • 1-½ cup All-pupose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ⅓ cups Milk
  • 1-½ cup Blueberries (up To 2 Cups, Which I Prefer)
  • 1 Tablespoon All-purpose Flour
  • 2 whole Egg Whites
  • ¼ cups White Suga
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Flour
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Orange Zest
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Water

Instructions

  1. Filling:
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, egg and orange zest; beat until smooth. (Be sure to use the measurements found under filling for these.) Set aside.
  3. Glaze:
  4. Stir together the glaze ingredients and set aside.
  5. For the bread:
  6. Cream butter and sugar (1/2 cup) until fluffy. Add salt and vanilla. Add egg yolks (save the egg whites as you’ll need them later) to the sugar mixture; beat until creamy. Set aside.
  7. In another bowl, combine flour (1 1/2 cups) and baking powder. Add this mixture, alternately with milk to egg yolk mixture.

  1. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add sugar (1/4 cup), 1 tablespoon at a time, and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into batter.
  2. Pour 1/2 of the batter (or a little less) into a floured and greased bread pan. Layer the filling over the batter and then finish with remainder of batter. This will create a layer of “cheesecake” between the blueberry batter.

  1. Pour glaze over top of unbaked loaf and bake at 350F for 55-60 minutes, took me more like 95 minutes (but the recipe says 60) maybe something is wrong with my oven?
