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.
