Blueberry Banana Bread

I was going to make banana bread yesterday but when I went to make it, I realized that one of my kids ate  the bananas.  I had to wait until today, after  I could get to the store to buy some more.  

I have made this recipe several times, and it has turned out great every single time.  Tonight I decided to change it up a bit and add some blueberries to the recipe.      

You will need
1 3/4 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
2-3 ripe bananas
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup margarine
2 Tbsp milk
2 eggs
blueberries  (I used half a pint container)

Preheat oven  at 350 degrees. Mix 1 cup of the flour and the other dry ingredients (sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt)  in a mixing bowl.
Mash the bananas and add into the dry mixture and stir.

Add the eggs, milk, 3/4 cup flour and blueberries.  Mix until all ingredients are blended well.

Spray cooking spray in a bread pan and add your dough.  Bake at 350 for 55 mins to one hour.

It will come out a wonderful golden color.   Let cool, before cutting (if you can!)
I could only wait about 10 minutes before I had to cut it.  It was so full of blueberries and looked like a giant warm blueberry muffin. 

I added some margarine and since it was still warm, it melted into a slice of  wonderful blueberry, banana goodness.  YUM!

  18. I like banana bread and I like blueberry muffins- how do the two taste together?

  19. Della.. Oops, sorry about that. You add the margarine/butter when you add the milk and eggs.

    Karan.. I think it kind of tastes like a bluberry muffin with banana bites.

    I need to make another loaf, my son has been asking me to make it all week.

  20. Thanks for linking to Saturday Dishes.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,
