Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Made  times

"This is so good and reminds me of a real moist kind of a sweet quick bread. Everybody asks for the recipe: this bread is moist, and easy to make too. Note: If you are using frozen blueberries, you can thaw them in the microwave for about 3 minutes. However, you need to increase the amount of blueberries to 3/4 cup."

My family loved it. I liked the way the ingredients were combined. It seemed lighter than other banana breads, and I like that. I put in a bit less sugar, as my bananas were rather sweet. Th...
