I absolutely love Blueberries. I combined a cheesecake filling and a cinnamon streusel topping to my bread recipe. This is no ordinary blueberry bread. "Wow," it is amazing! I brought a loaf to my neighbors. They told me "they couldn't put it down." They absolutely loved it. This has also become a family favorite. Reheat in microwave for a yummy treat. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and have a slice. I'm sure you will love it!
