Blueberry Banana Bread
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
Makes3 mini loaves
The recipe on my computer doesn't say how many blueberries.
I had some older blueberries and ripe bananas, so this was the perfect recipe for me to use them both up. After reading the reviews I decided to make these into muffins instead of bread. As suggested I used butter instead of shortening and added 1 tsp. of cinnamon. Since my hubby is diabetic, I also used 3/4 cup of Splenda in place of the sugar. I baked them for about 28 minutes and was rewarded with 24 beautiful and delicious muffins. Very tasty, nice texture and a new favorite!
My husband tasted a slice 1st, and I asked him how it was and he said ok. I tried a slice and I was disappointed because it was not yummy. Texture was nice with blueberries and bananas, but for me it lacks flavor. I'd suggest adding cinnamon. It is tasteless and flavorless.
I should have divided the batter into 4 mini loaf pans. Then the time for baking might have worked. As it is, I got three dark thick loaves. They taste very nice.
This is a wonderful quick bread. My daughter-in-law raises her own blueberries and I use them to make it. It is great for any meal or any time of the day for a yummy snack.
I liked this denser banana bread recipe for a bit of a change from my usual one made with oil. I made into 12 muffins, since I was scared of all the reviews of it not cooking well. Even as muffins, it took longer than usual, about 30 minutes, and they did get dark. I put in the full amount of sugar, and it was almost like a cake to me, but I usually do cut back on sugar.
Delicious... I cooked in loaf pan, 9.25x 2.75 in. It was in the oven for 50 min. I was very nervous, I thought I wasn't mixed well .. but it turned OK. Next time I will mix dry parts (flour, sugar....) and creamy parts separately.
I tried making this in a regular loaf pan. It was in the oven for 90 minutes trying to get the middle to bake. I cut the end piece off, it was brown. Middle under cooked and the ends were way over cooked. This recipe is more like a muffin batter. If I use again I while try making them into blueberry-banana muffins.

I baked in 2 8x4 inch pans. It took about 40-45 minutes to bake in my oven.
