Try using freshly picked blueberries and a homemade gooseberry jam for a special touch to this sweet berry bread. It is truly delicious served freshly baked, toasted or even used  to create a fruity bread and butter pudding. Mix and match the berries and jam to change the flavour of the bread, using the latest in season fruit.
