There’s nothing like homemade bread to make your kitchen smell amazing.
In this case, we went all in with this recipe for Banana Blueberry Bread that left our Brooklyn apartment smelling scrumptious for days. Now although it’s loaded with banana and blueberries, this healthy…
Ok, so there’s a whole bunch of butter in here — but in moderation, this treat is worth it.
2 bananas (overripe)
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
2 cups of flour
2 cups of blueberries (one small package works)
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon of vinegar
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
Blueberry Banana Bread
To start – preheat the oven to 375 and get ready to mix.
Combine the softened butter and 3/4 cup of sugar in a bowl and set aside. (I cut the butter into smaller chunks and microwaved for a few seconds to speed up the process first before mixing with the sugar)
In a large mixing bowl, combine the bananas, eggs, milk, vinegar, vanilla, salt and baking soda. Mix until as smooth as possible (but some chunks are ok). If you have a hand mixer or small blender — this can work here too.
Add 1 cup of flour to the banana mixing bowl and blend together. Then add the butter/sugar mixture you set aside to the bowl as well. Add the remaining flour at the end and mix thoroughly. Once combined — gently add the blueberries and mix evenly.
Sprinkle a handful of granulated sugar into the bottom of the cooking loaf pan — then pour in your banana bread mixture into the pan.
Dash a thin layer of cinnamon on top of the batter before tossing it into the oven for 30-40 minutes. Once done — check with a toothpick that comes out clean after poking it into the middle of the bread.
Let sit in the pan for about 15 minutes and then enjoy!
