Notes

It’s best to dice the berries rather than chop them. And, be sure to coat the diced berries with a bit of flour before adding them to the batter. This will keep the berries from just sinking to the bottom of the pan.

Tap your loaf for a bit of a hollow sound, and test it with a wooden skewer or toothpick to be sure it’s done before removing it from the oven. Under baked bread may be a bit soggy.
