Banana and blueberry loaf

As regular readers will know I hate waste, so another variation on Banana loaf was required to use up a couple of spotty bananas from the fruit bowl. I always buy organic fairtrade bananas as they taste so much nicer and more intensely banana than the ordinary type, combined in this recipe with one of my favourite superfruits blueberry, the resultant loaf is very moreish. Its a another cup recipe and is very easy, just line your tin and mash your bananas, other than that its an all recipe.

  • Plain flour - 2 cups
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup soft butter or quality margarine ( I like to use butter as the flavour is better in this recipe)
  • 1 cup caster sugar (you could use granulated)
  • 2 eggs - free range
  • Vanilla paste - 1 tsp ish
  • 2 ripe bananas - mashed
  • 1 cup of blueberries
You'll need a 2lb loaf tin, lined

  • Just place all ingredients (except for the blueberries) in a large bowl and beat until you have a smooth mixture, I use my Kitchenaid mixer !
  • Then gently fold in the blueberries and pour into your prepared loaf tin
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 170c for approx 50 minutes, until cooked when tested with a skewer
  • Cool in the tin initially and then on a wire rack
  • Keeps well in airtight tin and would also freeze as well
