Here you go:


Mulberry Bread

1 cup mulberries or cranberries
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 orange
2 Tbsp. margarine, melted
1 egg, beaten
1 Tbsp. chopped nuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift dry ingredients together.

Grate rind from orange; squeeze out juice. Add water to orange juice to make 3/4 cup liquid. Add rind, liquid, margarine, egg to dry ingredients; mix. Fold in cranberries or mulberries and nuts into batter

Pour into an oiled, lined 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Yields 1 loaf.

Thank you! Maybe I will sneak out tonight after bedtime and harvest some for bread. Sounds so yummy!

I have two of the "Illinois Everbearing" cultivar in my backyard. The berries are delicious, but the birds get most of them.

White mulberry is fed strictly to silkworms. I've read that the berries are revoltingly sweet, not poisonous but inedible due to the flavor -- unless you're a silkworm, I guess.

Our Mulberry Bread recipe

2 cups of mulberries, cover with water and bring to a boil, then simmer for five minutes
Taste, can add a bit of sugar if desired (I usually don't)
drain (keep the water) and then squeeze most of the juice out (save the juice)

add the juice to the drained water to total 1 1/2 cups of water/juice combo. Add more water if necessary to reach 1 1/2 cups

around 5 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp yeast dissolved in 1/2 cup of water
dash of salt
make a hole in the flour and mix yeast with water in the center

separately combine

1 egg
1/4 cup of olive oil
2 tbsp honey
1 1/2 cup of water/juice combo
mulberry pulp

mix into the flour, let rise twice, put into loaf pans, bake at 425 for 10 minutes and then 325 for 40-45 minutes

I often add some additional spices such as turmeric, cloves or cinnamon but this isn't necessary
