This is a great quick bread that I found online sometime ago and is requested often by my family. I have made this as muffins, mini loaves, in a bundt cake pan, etc and it is a very forgiving recipe. I've not used other berries, but I'm sure it would taste great.

These sound really yummy.....going to try them for sure.
Very Good! I made this into 3 mini loaves and skipped the white chocolate drizzle. I may cut back on the sugar next time in both the recipe and the streusel topping as the white chocolate really sweetens the recipe quite a bit. I used frozen blueberries, and my loaves took 39 minutes to bake. We tried half a loaf last night and DH requested I put some in his lunch today. Thanks for sharing. Nick's Mom
