Blackberry Orange Tea Loaf

It is always nice to discover a new loaf to serve either family or guests and this one’s  just  the trick for you.

  • 5 cups flour (this is right)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp plus 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 2 cups fresh blackberries
  •  2 tsp. grated orange rind
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup half and half cream
  • 2 tsp. almond flavouring
  • 6 tbsp. Crisco oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 2 loaf pans and set aside.

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.  Mix  the liquid ingredients  together.  Gently add the dry ingredients and lightly mix.

Divide the batter equally between the  pans amd bake for about 55-60 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool for10 minutes.  Remove  from pans and cool completely.  They can now be wrapped in saran wrap and then tin foil.  You can make a drizzle of icing sugar and cream and drizzle across the top or just sprinkle heavily with icing sugar (as a powder).

Before putting in the freezer, write on the packages the date and what it is.  Enjoy.
