MY FAMILY loves fresh blueberries just about any way, but this loaf cake is a favorite at breakfast, as a delicious snack or quick dessert. We always look forward to summer, when fresh blueberries appear in the market. -Nancy Anderson, Broomall, Pennsylvania

"Very good, I am not much of a baker and this turned out perfect. I added fresh raspberries as well as the blueberries. I have an allergy to cinnamon so I just used brown sugar on top and it came out perfect! Much better eaten hot, my boyfriend love it!"

"I found this to be very easy to make and great tasting. My only addition to the recipe was a 1/4 teaspoon of salt. That's just something passed down from my mom. I love this and it gets great reviews. Making my second loaf in a week!"

"Made this the other day and was very disappointed. It tastes like there is something missing from the recipe. The only thing that gives this a two star rating is the fact that it is very moist. My hubby said it was "OK" and I think he was just being nice. I found several recipes that I liked better online but the ingredients were in metric and I was afraid to try converting them. After making this I wish I had tried one of those other recipes."

"I first tried this recipe for a 4th of July party about 5 years ago. It turned out so well that I make it at least twice during the summer, for church bake sales, and for my father-in-law who requests it very often!"
