Bento Desserts Part 5 - Blueberry Banana Bread

I've posted this before, but this is possibly the best recipe I have ever tried for banana bread. The yogurt makes all the difference and it is a lovely moist banana bread with a great flavor, definitely a favorite around here. I made one loaf for 3 of us (Faith was at camp). I have 2 pieces left. It is absolutely wonderful.



As well, it's versatile! I threw in a few handfuls of fresh blueberries into the dough for extra flavor and fruit. I've made it before with cherries and I think pineapple would be quite nice, maybe next time.

Base Banana bread:
2 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup yogurt (I prefer vanilla, but plain or flavored work too)

Beat butter & sugar together, add eggs.
Add banana, yogurt, vanilla, blend well.
Add dry ingredients, blend until moist.
Bake in a loaf pan at 350 for approximately 50 minutes-1 hour.

My note: After blending in the dry ingredients, I added my blueberries so they wouldn't get mashed in the blending process.

We need another loaf of this, one was not enough, but I'm out of bananas.

  3. I'm going to try this one the next time I have some "ugh" bananas. I made the zucchini cookies - they are to die for. I think I ate half the batch in 2 days just myself! Love!!!!
