This recipe is from a 1981 Southern Living Cookbook. I have been making it regularly since then. It is a family favorite. I love it with fresh cranberries instead of the blueberries; however my husband likes it with the blueberries. It tasts great still warm and topped with cream cheese.
I ALWAYS double this recipe and it makes 2 loaves that I bake together.
