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.
