One of my hubby's favorites!! He goes nuts for this!! I especially love it because my recipe makes 2 loaves and I always like to keep one and give the other to a friend, co-workers or neighbor. Everyone says my bread is simply the best! (But I think they may be a wee bit biased! ;) )

Bake in 350ยบ oven for 55-60 minutes, til toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool slightly, loosen sides with knife from sides of pan, turn out onto rack to cool.

*I always bake blueberries frozen in breads and muffins so they hold up perfectly, and you don't end up with a hollow blue hole, lol.
