Recipe Notes

  • For the moistest bread, do not over-mix the batter.
  • Feel free to add some chopped walnuts, but they are optional.
  • You can add a sprinkle of cinnamon into the batter to give it an extra boost of flavor. 
  • If you don't have fresh blueberries, you can use frozen in a pinch.
  • Store any leftover bread in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat until combined. Add the mashed bananas and stir until combined.
  2. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine, then add to the wet ingredients. Do not over-mix. 
  3. Fold in the blueberries. 
  4. Pour the batter into a 9x5-inch loaf pan that's been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool.

I was just looking for a new bread recipe for my weekend baking therapy. Making this, thanks for the inspiration!

Can I make cupcakes with this recipe as well? Thinking also of topping them with cream cheese frosting. Any suggestions?
Donna John
That sounds delicious! I would fill 3/4 and then watch the first batch to see how long to bake them. Guessing maybe 15 to 20 minutes. Let us know how they turn out and snap a photo!
Can use use one cup of wheat flour, one cup all purpose flour? I'd like to add some chopped walnuts to the recipe too.
Donna John
Nuts are always welcome in a banana bread recipe! I don't see why you couldn't use half wheat and half all-purpose flour.
