Don’t you just love baked goods with streusel topping? I know I do!! Not only is this blueberry bread super-moist, it has just enough cinnamon and nutmeg to give it a “gotta-have-more” flavor!
It is the best blueberry bread with coffee or tea and would make a delicious toasted bread at breakfast. I’m thinking this could also make a great gift for anyone you want to bake up a goodie for including new moms, neighbors, etc. Hope you enjoy!
