bread & breakfast

Blueberry Banana Bread 

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

5 tbsp melted butter

2 eggs, room temperature

¾ cup sugar

4 ripe bananas, mashed (or blended in a food processor)

1 pint blueberries, separated into halves 

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

Dash vanila extract

Pinch of salt

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray.

In a small bowl, take one half of the blueberries and toss them with a few tsp of flour and set aside.

Using a blender or food processor, use the remaining half of blueberries to make a puree. I usually combine this step with mashing the bananas. I process them both together in the processor until they are nice and smooth.

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter, and eggs and mix until fully incorporated.

Add in the vanilla and ½ of the mashed bananas and the vanilla.

Blend in half of the dry ingredients. Add in the remaining half of the mashed bananas, followed by the remaining half of the dry ingredients, including the blueberries that were previously tossed in flour.

Pour the batter into the loaf pan and tap on the counter to get rid of any air bubbles.

Bake for approximately 55 minutes or until the bread is moist with few crumbs when stuck with a toothpick.

Let cool before cutting.

Serve with your favorite spread.

Enjoy!
