it would only be fair to let you know that i'm distracted as i write this. the andy griffith show is on and i'm a sucker for manners and kindness. speaking of kindess, laura brought be a few overly ripe bananas thinking i may be able to use them to make a banana bread. well, just as deputy fife's lines are spot-on, so is this twist on traditional banana bread.
if you want to make blueberry banana bread too, follow this script. whisk together the dry ingredients and then mix together your wet ones and sugars in a separate bowl.
ever had one of these brown bananas on your countertop before? this browning happens a little too often on my countertops. they make for the best ingredient in banana bread, luckily.
stir your dry ingredients into your wet ones until they are immersed as one. one bread...one love.
fold in as many blueberries as your heart desires. one to two cups is probably reasonable, but i may be a little more unreasonable next time. i really love blueberries.
i'm sure a loaf pan or muffin pan would do just fine, but i was feeling bundty and decided to use my bundt pan.
my blueberry banana bread turned out pretty tasty and was easy to throw together. as simple and delightful as a sunny day in mayberry.
blueberry banana bread
what you need
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp vegetable oil
2 large ripe bananas, smashed
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1- 2 cups blueberries
what you do
whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. in a separate bowl, mix your sugars, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla. then, stir in the smashed bananas.
preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
stir your dry ingredients into the wet ones and make sure they are completely immersed.
fold in, rather gently, your desired amount of blueberries. voila.
bake for 35 minutes and check your bread with a toothpick. if it isn't ready, continue to add a few minutes on at a time. i have a phobia about overcooking baked goods and drying them out. join my phobia.
enjoy the bread!
