Blueberry Banana Bread is one of my favorite bread. You get to have two fruits in a loaf of bread, this bread is moist, sweet and yummy quick to prepare. It doesn’t involve using any energy (it’s the simple yet delicious bread to make) to make. You can even tweak the recipe add nut, you are allowed to double the recipe if wish if you think the sugar is too much, reduce it just make it the way you like. I made one loaf yesterday morning, and before I could say jack the kids devour it, I didn’t get to slice and take a picture. So, I had to bake another one so I can show y’all how it looks, you see how easy it is to make?
The picture below is the loaf I made yesterday. Let’s get started.
- 1.5 Cups Flour, extra for dusting
- 1/4 Cup Sugar (Use 1/2 cup if you want it sweet, or 1 Cup for super sweet)
- 1 Cup Blueberries (you can add more or less)
- 1/2 Cup Butter (1 Stick) at room temperature
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 3 Ripe Banana, lightly mashed
- 1 Egg, beaten
- 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray the loaf pan (9x5 or 8x4) and line with parchment paper if you don't have just grease the pan and set aside.
In a bowl, mix butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. You can use a stand mixer or an electric mixer. If you don't have one melt butter and add sugar then mix very well. Add egg and combine.
In a small bowl, mash bananas, add vanilla and combine. Add dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt).
Toss blueberries in flour, make sure you don't burst the berries and set aside.
Sift the dry ingredients, mix all the ingredients together. (banana mixture, butter mixture, and flour) Combine until smooth, but don't overmix.
Add in the blueberries (don't burst them) into the mixture and incorporate everything.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for one hour until it fully cooked (insert a toothpick into the center of the bread, and it comes out clean). Allow it to cool before removing from the pan.
You can adjust the recipe to your preference.
If you try the recipe, let me know how it turns out.
