Blueberry Cream Cheese Loaf

blueberry cream cheese loaf

I found this little recipe on Pinterest, and I thought it might make a good Christmas present.  You can find the original recipe here:  http://thekeenancookbook.com/dessert/blueberry-cream-cheese-bread.  Now, I must admit, I have not tried this dessert, but it certainly looked and smelled good when I cooked it.  I’d say that it’s probably not too bad at all, especially if you’re like me and like blueberries.  I managed to make four tiny loaves of this for Christmas presents from the orginal recipe.  I hope you like it!
