Blueberry Banana Bread Recipe

I really enjoy banana bread but with the addition of blueberries it's over the top.  Just makes the best coffee or tea break time. The top is sprinkled with a blend of cinnamon and sugar. You can leave it plain while baking if you want, it's perfect the way it is! You can also make muffins with the same batter if you like the individual grab and go breakfast!




2 1/2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

In another bowl beat well:

1 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups mashed banana's
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
4 eggs

1 cup fresh blueberries
Optional: before baking add a mixture of cinnamon and sugar to the top ....

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mix till well blended, fold in the blueberries. Pour into two well greased loaf pans or make muffins. Bake ar 350 for 30 to 35 minutes or until brown and middle is dry when tested with a toothpick.
Another great way to use this batter is to pour this mixture into individual cupcake tins, sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar... this batter makes great muffins!

This bread sounds incredible. Bananas, blueberries and cinnamon how can you go wrong! If I had a cup of coffee to go with this it would be a perfect start to the day.

I've never thought of adding blueberries to banana bread, but it looks amazing! Much better than chocolate chips :)
