Improved Blueberry Banana Bread

Submitted by: KITSUNEBI

Introduction

I was looking for a less dense version of banana bread and found a recipe from Baking Illustrated that claimed to be lighter than average. I modified it to suit my taste (adding blueberries and cinnamon).

It's delicious! Lighter and softer than my old recipe, but still sweet and moist.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease the bottom/sides of a 9 by 5 loaf pan.

Whisk the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Set aside

Mix the mashed bananas, yogurt, eggs, butter, and vanilla with a wooden spoon in a medium bowl. Add blueberries, then lightly fold the banana mixture into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula until just combined. The batter should look thick and chunky. Scrape into the loaf pan.

Bake for 55 - 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
