Apple Blueberry Bread
recipe from Lisa @The Cutting Edge of Ordinary
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon apple juice
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg, room temp
1 ½ cups apples, peeled, cored and chopped (approx 2 – 3 large apples)
½ cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (thawed & drained)
½ cup walnuts (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x9x3 loaf pan.

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl combine the apple juice, lemon zest, butter and egg. Mix until well combined. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the blueberries, apples and walnuts (if desired).

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes, and serve warm or at room temp.
