Recipe by Uncle Dobo

This recipe is based on Julesong’s Mendenhall Sourdough Gingerbread, with some modifications and my addition of fresh Alaskan blueberries!

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Although the blueberry flavor didn't come through much for us, the berries did add an additional moisture to the gingerbread, & that was just fine! Definitely worth making especially if you enjoy gingerbread as much as we do! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup recipe tag]
