Blueberry Banana Bread

in Baking, Breads & Loafs, Recipe

I’ve been on a 5 day “stay-cation” before I start a new job on Monday and I think it’s exactly what my body needed. I haven’t been setting an alarm in the mornings and have allowed myself to wake up naturally (well, as natural as possible with two hungry dogs barking and normally a 9AM wake-up call from Q), but still I’m sleeping in and just decompressing. I feel more energized and my body has just been able to kind of mellow out for a couple days which I think it really needed. I made this bread earlier in the week to bring in to my old job as one last “Koko Treat” (they have been the testers of many a sweet thing). And it was definitely another hit with the co-workers.

For this loaf, I took a basic banana bread recipe which we use as a “go to” in our house when we have ripe bananas. I added in blueberries and layered a banana over the top of the loaves for some extra flavor (and looks-wise it gives the loaves something special). We toasted the walnuts instead of putting them in raw and we used a potato ricer to mash our bananas which speeds up the process.

 

 

(I let my loaves cool outside for 5 minutes before taking them out of the pans since we were in a rush to get out the door.) These loaves were truly delicious and a great recipe to try for any beginning bakers.

The bread in itself sounds delicious but your presentation just makes this a total winner of a recipe! Such gorgeous photos too :)

Koko, I don’t care for bananas or blueberries, but this is SO gorgeous, I may have to convert.

Suggestion: Toss you blueberries with a little flour & they won’t sink to the bottom of your batter. Good recipe & will make again!

Toss the berries in small amount of flour & the fruit won’t sink to the bottom of the tater.
