Making and Baking:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C Fan / Gas 4.
  2. Grease or line a bread tin.
  3. Peel and mash the bananas into a mixing bowl.
  4. Mix the butter, brown sugar and egg thoroughly into the bananas.
  5. Next add the baking powder, salt and sieve in the flour.
  6. Finally add the fresh blueberries to the mixture and pour it into the bread tin.
  7. Place into the oven and allow an hour for baking.


Now I’m going to put my feet up with a slice and a cup of tea. Give it a go!

Banana bread is a versatile sweet. You can swap the blueberries for many different bursts of flavour. Why not indulge in banana and chocolate chip bread (roughly 50g) or even try banana and walnut bread (few handfuls chopped).

  1. Banana bread is one of my baking stables, I always leave two bananas to be a little over ripe so I have an excuse to make more! Blueberries will be a yummy addition next time, thank you 🙂 I have a hummingbird banana bread on my blog you may like, with added pineapple and pecans!
