Blueberry Banana Bread

I just love making quick breads (you know…the breads that don’t require yeast).  
They’re easy, they’re moist, they’re fast and they’re always yummy.
You should whip this little bread up and have some for breakfast…or dessert…or a snack…or just because.
Shopping List
1 stick of butter, melted and cooled
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
5 ripe bananas, coarsely mashed
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray (I used Pam) one standard loaf pan.
Cream butter, 2 of the bananas and sugar in a large bowl using an electric mixer.
Mix in eggs.  Then mix in the remaining 3 bananas and sweetened condensed milk.  Do not over-mix the batter.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder with a fork or whisk.  
Fold the banana mixture into the bowl with your dry ingredients.  Do not over-mix!  Stir in your blueberries.
Pour batter into your prepared pan.

Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Remove pan from oven and let bread rest in the pan about 45 minutes.  After that, flip bread out onto a serving plate.
Slice bread and enjoy.
Quick breads make great gifts too!  Enjoy!

    That bread looks DELICIOUS. And you know me, I hate bananas….but somehow I still want to try that bread! I at least want to bake a loaf and just look at how pretty it is. šŸ˜‰

    Hi Shay! Is there anything that can be substituted for the sweetened condensed milk to make it a little healthier?

  • Mix and Match Mama July 3, 2014 at 1:37 pm

    Regular milk šŸ™‚ Enjoy!

    Great minds think alike! Last weekend I decided to add banana to my blueberry muffins and loved them. I still have some tweaking to do to get them to rise a little more. I LOVE that you used sweetened condensed milk! Gets me every time!

    Yum! And so appropriate for this weekend!

    Gosh, this bread looks delcicious! I could eat an entire loaf at this moment! yum!

  • KimS July 5, 2014 at 4:20 pm

    Any ideas what to use the rest of the can of sweetened condensed milk?

  • Mix and Match Mama July 5, 2014 at 5:04 pm

    You could use it to sweeten coffee, oatmeal, frosting, cookies…any recipe that needs a little extra sweetness. Enjoy!

    This looks so delish! I am so making this next week;just one question, what size pan do you use?

  • Mix and Match Mama July 9, 2014 at 8:11 pm

    A standard loaf pan is 8.5 by 4.5 but sometimes it says 9 by 5. Enjoy!

  • Victoria Stamm July 11, 2014 at 7:22 pm

    It's in the oven now! Can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing, Shay! šŸ™‚

  • kelly forbes August 1, 2014 at 11:54 pm…this was my FAVORITE recipe of yours! I am a banana bread connoisseur! Before I tried this recipe, I just did NOT believe that ANY recipe could compare to Paula Deen's banana bread…I love Paula Deen, but this recipe beat hers! I never knew how much goodness blueberries could add to a banana bread. Thanks a bunch for this recipe…and all of your recipes! Tonight I made your nachos and they were incredible…my whole family devoured them in a matter of a few minutes. You need to publish a recipe book! Keep the recipes coming, mix and match mama!

    Can you use frozen blueberries?

  • Mix and Match Mama December 6, 2014 at 3:39 pm

    You could sub with frozen blueberries. Enjoy!

    In the oven now… I substituted flax for the eggs because of allergies. I'll let you know how it turns out!

    • Leticia Sangalang April 1, 2015 at 5:55 am

      Turned out great with the flax egg! Have made this twice since original comment.

  • Jaimie Kosteroski February 7, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    Love this bread! Just wondering, what if any, modifications would be needed to make this as muffins? Thanks!

    Great taste trust me, it's so wonderful

  • Lynsey June 28, 2016 at 8:03 am

    I’m new to the whole baking scene. Should I use salted or unsalted butter?

    • Mix and Match Mama June 28, 2016 at 8:18 am

      I always use unsalted. It’s a little sweeter and then I control the salt.

  • mrswagner July 11, 2016 at 3:58 pm

    do you know if i can substitute coconut oil for the butter?
