Gingerbread is one of my favorite breads/desserts. The addition of the fresh blueberries really gives it a nice tart addition to the warm spices and molasses. This was really easy to make and it will be a nice breakfast treat for the weekend; not to mention, a good afternoon snack! Thanks for the post.
