"In an homage to her and our home state, I've updated her original recipe to include wild Maine blueberries and toasty hazelnuts. I love to griddle a slice of this with butter and top it with vanilla ice cream."
Yield: One Loaf Active Time: 15 minutes. Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
1 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
2 tablespoon butter (melted)
2 cup flour, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup wild Maine blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped and toasted
1/4 cup raw sugar
In a large bowl, beat the egg and sugar. Add in the orange juice, followed by the melted butter. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the two bowls together and stir to combine. Fold in blueberries and hazelnuts. Pour into a loaf pan sprayed with oil and sprinkle the raw sugar on top. Bake at 350deg for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool completely before removing from pan and slicing.
