Quite a nice recipe for the fall. The sweet potatoes make the loaves a pretty orange. The blueberries are nicely unexpected. Makes two very large, moist loaves. Thanks for the recipe, Tish!

Delicious, moist bread that everyone will never know there's sweet potatoes in... I made it for my co-workers and had requests for the recipe. Easy enough to make for the beginning baker, too.
