This Orange blueberry loaf is a very moist and delicious loaf. This is not too sweet and for extra moist, I added simple and small glaze drizzled over the orange blueberry loaf while it was still warm. Just poke the baked loaf and drizzle the glaze and let it sit for a few minutes.
My family and I don’t really fancy cake that much, as a matter of fact, our third child ‘Ji doesn’t eat cake at all, not even her birthday cake…lol, but there are some cake the rest of us love to eat once in a while and this orange blueberry loaf is one of them.
However, the simple glaze I drizzled over this load is a small quantity but if you want more glaze, just prepare more, I added the quantity that is suitable for the whole loaf and should in case you desire more glaze over your orange blueberry glaze.
Valentine is on Thursday if you need a simple loaf for your family, this orange blueberry loaf is a very moist cake that everyone would love. This loaf could be eaten as a breakfast or as dessert. There are some other simple cakes I posted a while ago, I will link them below.
