Banana Blueberry Bread

As with so many of my cooking adventures, I end up making something based on what I have sitting around the kitchen. Yesterday I had three very ripe bananas and a pint of fresh blueberries. So I decided to make this yummy breakfast bread. The bread turned out great. It was moist and delicious and so pretty with the blueberries spotted throughout the slice.

Banana Blueberry Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup fresh blueberries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 1 loaf pan. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.

Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add 1 egg and allow to blend into the butter mixture before adding the second egg along with vanilla extract. Beat mashed bananas thoroughly into the mixture. Add flour mixture in small increments while beating until just combined into a thick batter. Fold blueberries into the batter; pour into prepared loaf pan.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. I covered the loaf pan with foil partway through the cooking time. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
