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.

Ingredients

    * 2 cups all purpose flour
    * 1/3 cup dried, sweetened blueberries
    * 3/4 cup of Splenda Blend for Baking
    * 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    * 1 1/2 cups very ripe, soft, darkly speckled large bananas, mashed well (~3 bananas)
    * 1/3 cup plain yogurt
    * 2 large eggs, beaten lightly
    * 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled (3/4 stick)
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

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.
