Blueberry Corn Bread

Photos the Cooking Corner.
     When I have blueberries on hand one of the things I often make is blueberry banana bread. It's easy, moist and a favorite at my house. However there were no bananas on hand this time so I tried something new, adding a little cornmeal to mixture. This created a courser texture to the bread but it retained all the moisture. It was a favorite with my coworkers and is a quick bread I'd do again.
