Blueberries and bananas combine in these tender, golden loaves. Whether you enjoy a slice as a snack or for breakfast, this bread is so flavorful, you won't need butter. —Sandy Flick, Toledo, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 29, 2015

"Very similar to a recipe I've had 40 years, without the blueberries. I added a little cinnamon, used some whole wheat flour. It helps to mix the blueberries in a bit of flour so the "bluing" is reduced. Very good--now I need to try to stay away from it!"

"Added 3 bananas because that's what I had as well as a cup of blueberries and made it in a regular loaf pan. Cooked for about 50 minutes. Came out perfect!! Will definitely be making this again!!"

"Excellent! I used more like 2 cups of blueberries, and made one regular loaf, which took almost an hour. Will definitely make again!"
