What a perfect combination and what a perfect way to use some great fruit. I always seem to have bananas in my house, in the fruit basket or in the refrigerator awaiting their fate or even in the freezer all nice and mashed and measured! Unfortunately I was out of the frozen blueberries that my husband and I picked last summer so I had to resort to store bought, boo!
This bread turned out wonderful. I loved the addition of the blueberry to the banana bread. I sent half of this loaf with my husband to share with his coworkers. They gobbled it up! I plan on making this again when we go blueberry picking this month. I think I will make 2 loaves this time.
I found this recipe while scrolling through my Google Reader. Go on over to Delicious Melscious and check out her other delightful morsels! Enjoy!
Blueberry Banana Bread
source: Delicious Meliscious
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups ripe, mashed, bananas
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup coconut
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans.
In a medium bowl and with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring well. Add bananas and coconuts, stirring just until combined. Spoon batter into prepared pans.
Bake for 1 hour, or until a tester inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove from pans, and allow to cool completely on wire racks.
