very good breakfast bread, the texture is nice and so is the flavor. I added some spices: cinnamon and nutmeg to enhance the blueberry flavor. Also, it took a little longer than 60 minutes to bake. thanks for posting!
This is a very good recipe overall! I admit I did tweak a tiny bit - I only had an orange (not a lemon) in the house so I substituted orange zest for the lemon, and used about 1/2 cup of juice squeezed from the orange in place of some of the milk. Otherwise made as written, and it's great!
I absolutely loved this bread as is. The oatmeal makes it delicious and healthy. I have made this over and over and everyone who trys it is crazy about it. Thanks so much for an awesome recipe
