Banana Blueberry Bread

One of my favorite breads to bake:  Banana Blueberry Bread

Banana Blueberry Bread

Since blueberries are everywhere right now, and they’re available at a decent price… it’s a good time to cook and bake with them.  They add such deliciousness to recipes, and their fresh, sweet flavor is very much welcome in the summertime.  Here’s a bread you can bake this weekend.  It makes for an awfully delicious nibble for a weekend morning breakfast.

Banana Blueberry Bread Recipe

I’ve also found that slices of this bread make a great school snack.  I slice up the loaf, pop the slices into little zip baggies and store them in the freezer.  They’re easy to snatch and stuff in your child’s backpack for snacks.  And my son enjoys being able to grab a slice for after-school munching too.  Enjoy!

Banana Blueberry Bread

Yield: 1 loaf

Prep Time:15 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 large eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Whisk the first four ingredients (dry) into a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter until creamy. Then beat in the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, beating in one at a time. Stir in the dry ingredients and then banana.
  4. Carefully stir in the blueberries.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.

    This past weekend, I purchased a lot of fruit to bring as a fruit salad to a pot luck, however, I bought all the fruit on the wrong weekend! I love to bake so naturally I looked for recipes to use some of the extra fruit. This Banana Blueberry Bread is awesome! I have already baked 3 batches! It incorporates 2 delicious fruits into one amazing bread.

    I made the recipe using 2 medium size bread pans (7 3/8″ x 3 5/8″) and added an aluminum “tent” halfway in the baking process.

    Thank you for sharing this delicious fruit bread.

    I made this today. I used dried blueberries did not have fresh. I tried with frozen turned batter blue I stopped mixing. I also added walnuts. I like them. I tried the health. I like how I turned out with the dried berry’s. It’s still nice and moist. Thank you.

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe! I baked it in an 8″ x 5″ pan for 53 minutes. It is perfect; moist, tasty and not too sweet!

    This was amazing, much better than my usual banana bread. I am wondering can this be made in a bundt pan and would i just double the ingredients and how long would i bake this for. Looking forward to your response.

      Well, since I haven’t tried it that way… it’s tough to dish out advice on doing it that way. I would think you’d have to bake it longer, but I have no idea what to tell you!

    Love the blueberries! My kids would gobble this right up, there might not be any left over for snacks!

    Can you substitute gluten free flour or whole wheat flour?
    If so, would there be any adjustments to other ingredients?

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      I think you’d be fine using Cup4Cup GF flour (I use that one all the time), but I don’t have any knowledge about other types of GF flour. For whole wheat, I’d recommend subbing 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 all-purpose for best results.
