#13) Banana Blueberry Bread

OMG! One week into my Education degree and I am already exhausted.... But I guess we wouldn't be good teachers in the end if our profs didn't make us work hard for it, right? That being said, my studies don't leave me much time for baking (*tear*), so when I whipped this delicious sweet treat together I done it as quickly as possible. But don't worry, the taste of this sweet bread will not tattle to anyone that you didn't slave away to make such a wonderful treat :)

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup + 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar, separated
2 eggs, beaten
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup blueberries (fresh work best; frozen will change your baking time)


-Preheat oven to 350°F.
-Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
-Beat butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Add eggs, mashed banana, and vanilla. Stir together.
-Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture. Stir junt until moitened. (Over-mixing will produce a dry bread)
-Spray loaf pan with non-stick spray oil.
-Add 1/4 batter to bottom of pan. Sprnkle 1/3 cup blueberries over top. Cover with another 1/4 of the batter. Repeat until berries and batter are gone. (It will be necessary to spread the batter, as it is quite thick. I used a butter knife and gently pulled on the batter layers to cover the berries. Easy enough!)
-Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar over top and place in pre-heated oven.
-Bake for approximately 1 hour, until a toothpick comes out clean.

  10. I made this last night and it turned out fabulous! The only thing I changed was I folded in two cups of frozen blueberries to the batter and then baked it for 75 minutes (due to the frozen berries.) Thank you so much. We LOVED it!
