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.
