"I too used butter instead of shortening, and baked it in 2, 8.5" x 4.5" pans. Absolutely scrumptious!!!!!"
"Excellent. This is a keeper. I used 2 - 7" x 3 1/2" pans and added 10 minutes. My wife asked for seconds, which is a compliment for me."
"Not tried it yet but how do you the loaves to keep them from browning so dark? The picture looks very light in color on the outside. I want to achieve that."
"I made these just as written but instead of bread, I made 17 regular sized muffins. Our out if town company loved them."
"Very similar to a recipe I've had 40 years, without the blueberries. I added a little cinnamon, used some whole wheat flour. It helps to mix the blueberries in a bit of flour so the "bluing" is reduced. Very good--now I need to try to stay away from it!"
