Blueberry Banana Bread

Getting as much baking in as I can before the summer months when it just isn't as much fun to bake the things that take time in an oven.  Soon there will be more grilling recipes and ice cream. YUM!  I am ready. 

But for now, going to bake when I can because there is nothing that tastes better or smells better than any kind of bread baking in the oven. It is totally intoxicating and I wish they could bottle the smell!


adapted from The Kitchen Magpie

1/2 c. butter
1 c. cane sugar (I use unrefined)
2 large eggs
1 c. ripe mashed bananas (2-3 large)
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 t. baking spice
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 c. blueberries

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease and flour a 9x5" loaf pan.  Set aside.

Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda in a small bowl and whisk till well mixed. Set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugar until well blended and light.  Beat in one egg at a time and beat until smooth each time.  Add the vanilla and slowly beat in the mashed bananas..  Mix well.

Add in the flour mixture and fold gently with a rubber spatula until well combined and no streaks of flour show in the batter.  Then fold in the blueberries just until evenly distributed in the batter (as much as possible).

Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the oven 50-60 minutes, checking at 50 minutes with a cake tester or toothpick to see if it is done.  I used a Breville air fryer convection oven and set it on Bake and it took the full 60 minutes.  Sometimes a convection oven will take much less time  - it just depends on the batter, or so I am discovering!

So full of blueberries and so yummy.

Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then invert right side up onto a wire rack to cool completely.

This bread was moist and delicious and super easy to make!
