BLUEBERRY BANANA BREAD

 


Look at all those juicy blueberries.  I used frozen blueberries, so you can make this recipe year round.  It is a delightful recipe.  Looking at it, I want to make this again real soon!  We are going to the beach house and I am going to take the ingredients to make it there.






BLUEBERRY BANANA BREAD

Tender and moist classic banana bread full of juicy blueberries. Use fresh or frozen berries to make this delicious quick bread any time of the year! This is probably one of my favorite quick breads ever!  Full of juicy blueberries in banana bread; a comfort treat at its best with my herbal tea.  Hope you make this and enjoy it as much as I do. It is a keeper recipe.  I am making two of these loaves today; just double the recipe! I think I like this bread chilled most of all.  It is rich-tasting and the texture is moist; just amazing!
