DELICIOUS! I used fresh blueberries from my garden, added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, used 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white. Before adding my blueberries, I coated them in a small amount of flour to keep their shape when adding to the batter. I hand stirred in the berries. My batter was very thick! This bread rises high due to the amount of baking powder used, so make sure your oven racks are spaced apart well. I made 3 mini loaf pans and baked for 25-35 minutes. Very moist and flavorful!!! Will make again. Read More

I omitted the walnuts from my recipe. I found this recipe to be very basic and nothing special. I probably won't make it again. The taste was o.k. but nothing to write home about. A good recipe if you want a basic and plain bread with blueberries. Read More

This is a great recipe! I made 4 loaves in 2 days because it disappeared so fast. I left out the nuts and increased the berries to 2 cups. I also added an extra 1/2 cup of sugar as the b. berries I had were tart. I used standard loaf pans(2) and baked 45mins Delicious!!!!!! Read More

This bread is pretty good. Pretty mild in flavor though so next time I think I'll add cinnamon and/or vanilla. To save on fat and calories I cut sugar to 3/4 c.; used 1 c. whole wheat pastry flour + 2 c. all-purpose flour; used 2T applesauce + 1T vege. oil; used 2 c. blueberries and omitted nuts. Baked in a 9x5 pan and it took forever to bake--about 1 1/2 hours. Read More

Because of the reviews of this being a bland bread I used orange juice instead of the milk added a teaspoon each of vanilla and cinnamon and added maybe 1/2 cup more blueberries. It definitely wasn't bland then but rather moist and flavorful with a good texture that was somewhere inbetween a bread and cake. The crust got really crunchy (which I liked) but I ended up baking it for nearly 90 minutes before it was done. Read More

I left out the nuts because I didn't have any and I topped the bread with a bit of cin. sugar. This is like a muffin in bread form and not too sweet. Recommended Read More

This bread went over great at the daycare center where I work. I made a few modifications by adding more blueberries and using 25% less flour per serving. I also added larger amount of cinnamon into batter. I made a topping with butter cinnamon and sugar and sprinkled on bread right after I pulled from oven. Great bread recipe. I will make this again Read More

I tried this bread with a 9" loaf pan and it was a disaster. It burned on top but was still batter in the center. Then I tried it with the 12" as recommended and it was perfect! Tastes just like muffins but in a loaf. I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top. As others have suggested it is also good toasted and with butter. My kids love it too. I would suggest adding cinnamon or other flavorings if you prefer more flavorful breads although we like it as it is. Read More
