2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated (I used shredded)
3/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons butter, melted (I used 2 tablespoons extra-lite olive oil)
1 cup fresh (or frozen) blueberries
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, salt, orange rind and cheese and mix together. Add juice, shortening and egg. Beat until smooth. Carefully fold in the blueberries. Pour into a well greased loaf pan (1 1/2 quart).
Bake at 350 (F) for 55 - 65 minutes or until bread is firm to touch.
