  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 3 small loaf pans.
  2. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add 1 egg and allow to blend into the butter mixture before adding the second egg along with vanilla extract. Beat mashed bananas thoroughly into the mixture. Add flour mixture in small increments while beating until just combined into a thick batter. Fold blueberries into the batter; pour into prepared loaf pans.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Was excited to try this recipe and followed it exactly but the banana flavor completely overwhelmed the blueberry flavor and so I was disappointed in the taste_Nancy

Delicious!! Added 3 bananas instead of 2...baked in one large loaf pan instead of three small for 50 minutes - covered with foil after 35 minutes. Yum!!

I did toss my blueberries in some flour before adding to the batter which always helps in getting them evenly distributed instead of all dropping to the bottom of the loaf. Followed this recipe...

Made the recipe as listed but made them into mini muffins instead. I sprayed my pampered chef mini muffin pan and filled them to the top. Before I baked them, I added a topping mixture of 1/4 cu...

This is a delicious, tender banana bread. I did not add baking powder & it rose nicely. The bread is light & not dense @ all. The 3 small loaves are apparently the mini-loaf size. I made one 8...

This recipe was great! Excellent jumping off point. I used 4 bananas instead of 2 and about 3 cups of blueberries instead of 1. Also, instead of making a loaf of bread I baked mine in a 9x13 pan...

I love this recipe! The bread is very moist. I had to use frozen blueberries in it, but it didn't make a difference. It was still delicious. I followed this recipe exactly, except for adding...
