Blueberry Banana Bread

1 Comment

I really love banana bread, but I find it disappointing when the store-bought ones are often dry and don’t taste like there’s much banana in them. Also, the store-bought ones can sometimes taste too ‘buttery’ for my liking. I prefer making my own banana bread because I know what I’m putting in it. I find that plain ol’ banana bread is kind of boring, so I add blueberries in my recipe.

The recipe below makes a very moist and dense blueberry banana bread. Everyone who has tried my blueberry banana bread says they love it!

 Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup fine sugar
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • a dash of salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease a loaf pan.
  2. Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer on low speed until creamy. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition.
  3. Mash the bananas, and then add milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix well and scrape along the inside of the bowl as you mix.
  4. Add the banana mixture to the creamy mixture and stir to combine. Add salt, flour, baking powder, and baking soda, and then mix well.
  5. Pour 1/3 of batter into the pan, then evenly distribute 1/4 cup blueberries on top of the batter. Repeat until all the batter and blueberries have been added to the pan.
  6. Bake for 1 hr and 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes and then remove the bread from the pan. Allow the bread to cool completely.


TIP: The bread is best served slightly warmed and with a light drizzle of honey.
