My first post for the new year , 2013.   Christmas was very good to me this year, Mr. Dick got me my very own personal laptop.   Happy me.  Just have to learn how to use it!!!   Today I am sharing a recipe for some wonderful Blueberry Cream Cheese Bread.  The only draw back it uses a lot of bowls.  But the end is a beautiful loaf of bread and worth all those dishes. Please read the directions first, that will help to make this baking a happy time.  Enjoy.   Happy Baking,  and a big thanks to thekeenancookbook for making this bread and sharing it.   

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 to 2 cups blueberries
1 TBSP flour this is to coat the blueberries, helps them from sinking to the bottom of the
 loaf when baking
2 egg whites (beaten until stiff peaks form)
1/4 cup white sugar (add this to the egg whites after they are beaten, little at a time)
8 ounce package cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 TBSP flour
1 egg
1 TBSP orange zest, I used a clementine or you
 could use lemon)
2 TBSP Sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 teaspoon  water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   Grease and flour a
bread pan. 

The bread will bake for about 55-60 minutes.  
I used my hand mixer for this recipe.  

In a small bowl mix the ingredients for the glaze and set aside.
In another bowl add the ingredients for the filling and mix and set aside. 

In a large bowl cream the butter and the sugar together till light and fluffy. 
Add the  vanilla and mix.   Add the egg yolks (the whites are used latter) and mix into
the sugar mixture.  In another bowl add the dry ingredients and whisk them together,
then add a little at a time to the wet egg/sugar mixture along with the milk. 

In another bowl whip the egg whites til soft peaks form and add the 1/4 cup of sugar adding
1 tablespoon at a time and continue beating until they are stiff,  set aside. 
In another bowl measure out the fresh or frozen blueberries and sprinkle them with
1 tablespoon of flour and gently fold the flour into the blueberries.  Fold the egg whites
 into the bread batter,  and gently fold the floured blueberries into the bread batter.    

Pour half of this batter into the prepared bread pan.  Then layer the filling and spread this
over the bread batter.  This is the "cheese cake middle."  Then add the remaining batter
over the filling and spread this out evenly.   Pour the glaze over the top of the unbaked
bread and bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes.  

See the ribbon of cream cheese, Yummy

                                                                   HAPPY BAKING
