@Diane Lane, you just don't know that the picture you posted of that lemon blueberry whatever made me salivate. One of my favorite type of bread is like that, brown and sugary sweet. I just don't know if I can bake that kind of beauty because I admit that I have a low aptitude in baking although I have an extremely high aptitude in eating. We have no blueberry here so I guess mulberry can be a substitute? And for the lemon, what we have in our garden is the lime, there's some fruits right now.
So in case my husband agrees to bake it for me, it will be lime-mulberry bread. Is that okay?
You freeze the bread for how long? I have NEVER frozen anything thing. My mom sent me some bananas yesterday, that are over ripe and I am wondering if to freeze them. I don't know I like the effect when I freeze them. I would be so interesting to freeze my bread.How does it come out?I do tend to repeat successes, and since I'm happy with this recipe (I even gave it to my mom) @Winterybella, I will probably make it a few more times while blueberries are in season here, and tuck it away for next year, as well. I will hopefully get around to making at least one extra and freezing it, as well. There's nothing better in the middle of a cold Winter, than having something made with fresh berries that I can pull out of the freezer and have with tea when a craving hits.
I'm not familiar with mulberries, so I don't know how close the taste would be, but I'm sure the limes would be fine, with maybe a hint of extra sugar. If your hubby or one of the housemaids agrees to make it, they could taste the batter before baking, and it should give them a good idea. I tasted mine, and it was sweet before baking, so I'd aim for that with the substitutions. It's not overly sweet once it's baked, but is slightly sweet before going into the oven. I love lime, so I'd be happy with substituting that for the lemons, without any hesitation. I looked around and saw that they do have a sweet taste, so they'd probably be fine. If you have bilberries, those are supposed to taste just like blueberries, so those would be good also.

I have had great luck with freezing muffins (which tend to be about the same consistency as "quick breads"). I think it would work fine. You might want to freeze slices instead of whole loaves, not sure. I had banana muffins (because I had overripe bananas) in the freezer for a couple of months and they were perfectly fine once thawed. They were still even moist.
