Reviews for Blueberry Banana Bread

"I used a stick of butter in place of the shortening and added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. I also added more blueberries for personal preference. I made one large loaf, so it took about an hour to bake. The texture was excellent and everyone in the family loved it! Next time I will plan to use 3 bananas for more banana flavor, but overall it was very good!"
"It was excellent and my family really liked. However, the time is way off. It took almost 50 minutes, not 35 like the directions say."
"Great recipe per my husband... made this recipe into four small loafs and I never got to try them. They were gone when I went back to have some. Only change I made was using lard in place of the shortening and 3 bananas instead of two."
"Excellent. My kids loved this bread. Definitely will make it again!"
"I used 1 stick of margarine instead of shortening, 3 eggs and baked it in a Bundt cake pan. Also I added 1 tsp of cinnamon. it came out pretty good. I just need to stop myself from eating it all...."
