Orange Almond Blueberry Loaf

This is a sweet bread made from a doctored cake mix that, yes, I just invented in my own head. I love doctoring cake mixes! It's fast and easy and there are so many different flavor combinations you can make up.


1 box yellow cake mix
3 eggs (from box directions)
1/3 cup oil (from box directions)
1 cup orange juice (in place of 1 cup water from box)
1 container orange yogurt
zest of one orange
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 cup fresh blueberries, rinsed and coated in 1Tbsp flour


1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp orange juice
1/2 tsp almond extract

Mix the cake according to box directions (if your box cake mix calls for different amount of oil, eggs, water, go with what is on the box). In place of the 1 cup water, I used 1 cup OJ. I added 1/4 tsp almond extract. I also added 1 container orange yogurt:

And the zest of one orange:

Coat 1 cup blueberries in 1 Tbsp flour:

I have no idea what purpose coating the blueberries in flour serves, but I have seen it in other recipes, so I did it too :) Ha Ha!

Fold blueberries into batter:

Bake at 350 degrees in a greased and floured loaf pan (a bundt pan would be good too) for 60min.

Cool on a wire rack. Make glaze.

Mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 2Tbsp orange juice and 1/2 tsp almond extract. Once cake is cool, but still slightly warm, pour glaze over cake and let cool completely.

Once completely cool, slice and EAT!
