Blueberry Yogurt Bread


This is the first time I have made a quick bread from ingredients I had at hand.  In other words, I created this recipe.  The quick bread was very moist and not too sweet.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup organic sugar (or whatever sugar/sweetener you prefer)
1/2 cup Mediterranean blend oil (combination of canola, olive and grapeseed sold at Costco)
2 large eggs
3/4 cups organic plain yogurt (regular plain yogurt is fine)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups cup unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (I used Hawaiian sea salt)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup frozen blueberries (or fresh)
1 teaspoon orange zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease rectangular baking dish (Pyrex works well).

In a large bowl, mix sugar, oil and eggs.  Add the yogurt and vanilla.  Blend well.  Carefully add the flour, baking soda and salt.  Mix well but be careful not to over mix.  Add the blueberries, walnuts and orange zest.  Mix to blend.  Pour into greased baking dish.  Bake for approximately 3/4 hour to an hour. It may take as little as 1/2 hour depending on your oven and baking dish.  I used a big shallow baking dish and it took 1/2 hour to bake.  Use toothpick to check.
