Ingredients

Scale

FILLING:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 Tbsp. orange zest

GLAZE:

  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. water

BREAD:

  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 whole Egg Yolks
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 1/22 cups blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 whole egg whites
  • ¼ cup white sugar

Instructions

Filling:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, egg and orange zest; beat until smooth.  Set aside.

Glaze:

  1. Stir together the glaze ingredients and set aside.

For the bread:

  1. Cream butter and 1/2 cup sugar until fluffy. Add salt and vanilla. Add egg yolks (save the egg whites as you’ll need them later) to the sugar mixture; beat until creamy. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, combine flour (1 1/2 cups) and baking powder. Add this mixture, alternately with milk to egg yolk mixture.
  3. Coat berries with 1 tablespoon flour and add them to the batter.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into batter.
  5. Pour 1/3 of the batter into a floured and greased bread pan. Layer the filling over the batter and then finish with remainder of batter. This will create a layer of “cheesecake” between the blueberry batter.
  6. Pour glaze over top of unbaked loaf and bake at 350F for 55-60 minutes.
