This is a lovely, tender bread. I added 1/2 teaspoon each of vanilla and almond extract and I did not allow the batter to stand for the stated amount of time. I also divided the batter among four small loaf pans and reduced the bake time (don't remember how long I baked them). Can't wait to make this again in the coming summer months.
I loved this recipe but left out the nuts.(had too many problems with nut shells in baked goods)..but I too, added 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the batter, and also added 1 tsp nutmeg to the batter. Then I took a mixture of 1/3 cup brown sugar 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/8 tsp nutmeg and sprinkled it over the top of the batter before baking...Came out perfect....Overall it is a very good recipe.
I made this to freeze for a later date. It froze very well and the bread was pretty moist and had a good flavor, even though I think it could use a little vanilla. I think it sitting for 20 minutes before baking is why all the blueberries sank to the bottom. It still tasted good though! I used eggs and walnuts. Thanks for posting!

I'm a real estate agent in the lovely city of Rochester, New York. That's not what I expected to do with my life. I got my bachelor's in psychology, my masters in literacy education, and I taught high school special education for two years. Then I discovered that helping people find the homes of their dreams was my real passion. I've been doing it for over two years now and still absolutely love my career. Other than that, I have a very spoiled Border Collie mix named Bear that I adopted from a local shelter in spring '08. He's gorgeous and fun and brings me great joy. Now if only I could find a man like that... LOL!
