Number of Servings: 16


    1 1/4 cups sugar
    1/2 cup butter, softened
    2 large eggs
    1 1/2 cups mashed *very* ripe banana (3 medium ones should do it)
    1/2 cup buttermilk
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup fresh (or frozen) blueberries


1.Move oven rack to low position so that tops of pans will be in the centre of the oven. Grease bottoms only of 2 8-inch loaf pans.
2.Mix sugar and butter in a large bowl. [You can use your stand mixer from this point on, which is what we do.]
3.Stir in eggs until well blended.
4.Stir in banana, buttermilk, and vanilla and beat until smooth.
5.Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt until just moistened.
6.Stir in blueberries.
7.Preheat oven to 350 F. Divide batter evenly between pans.
8.Bake 8-inch loaves for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans on a wire rack.
9.Loosen sides of loaves; remove from pans and place top side up on wire rack. Cool completely, about 2 hours, before slicing. [We usually can't wait that long and start eating it as soon as it stops burning our tongues!]
10.Wrap tightly and store at room temperature for up to 4 days or refrigerate up to 10 days.

Makes 2 8-inch loaves; about 8 slices each.

  • This tasted delicious! I made it for my family and they all loved it. It was so moist and stayed fresh. The blueberry and banana combination made a great bread. I would definitely make it again. - 8/18/09
