Blueberry Cream Cheese Bread..pinned it and tried it

The other day I was invited over to a friends house to make cards, which is a hobby of mine. It was a good time!

She made a wonderful lunch, and for dessert we had blueberry cream cheese bread. She found the recipe on pinterest, (link below) and tried it out on us. I'm glad she did... as it's another winner!

It was so moist and delicious, popping with fresh blueberry flavor. The cream cheese was the best rich and creamy. 

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bread
½ cups butter
½ cups sugar
¼ tsp. salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2  egg yolks
1-½ cup  flour
1 tsp. baking powder
⅓ cups milk
1-½ cup blueberries
1 Tbsp.  flour
2  egg whites
¼ cups sugar
8 ounces cream cheese
½ cups sugar
1 Tbsp. flour
1 Egg
1 Tbsp. orange zest
2 Tbsp. sugar
½ tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. water

 For Filling
Combine cream cheese, sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, egg and orange zest; beat until smooth. Set aside.
For Glaze:
 Stir together the glaze ingredients and set aside.
For the bread:
 Cream butter and sugar (1/2 cup) until fluffy. Add salt and vanilla. Add egg yolks (save the egg whites....for later) to the sugar mixture; beat until creamy. Set aside.
 In another bowl, combine flour (1 1/2 cups) and baking powder. Add this mixture alternately with milk to egg yolk mixture.
Coat berries with 1 tablespoon flour and add them to the batter.
 In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add sugar (1/4 cup), 1 tablespoon at a time, and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into batter.
 Pour 1/2 of the batter  into a floured and greased bread pan. Layer the filling over the batter and then finish with remainder of batter. This makes a layer of cheesecake between the blueberry batter.. Pour glaze over top of unbaked loaf and bake at 350  for 55-60 minutes.
