Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This bread freezes very well. It is also a good recipe to make your own by adding fresh berries, flavored baking chips, nuts etc. It always comes out moist and delicious. If adding fresh fruit it may take an additional 10-15 minutes baking time. Making muffins cuts down the baking time. Muffins also freeze well. Just freezes muffins on a baking sheet, then place in a zip lock bag, removing excess air. Then remove only the number of muffins you need, thaw & enjoy!
