Blueberry Banana Bread

I was in the mood for a something a little sweet the other day! I had a few over-ripened bananas that kept staring up at me from my fruit bowl every time I walked into the kitchen! I swore I was going to use them in a smoothie, but alas they were even a little to ripe for that! I grabbed The Joy Of Cooking, my go to cookbook, and looked up their easy Banana Bread recipe to see if I had all the ingredients I needed?

  • 1 1/3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  •  1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  •  1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 5 1/3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  •    2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup of coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans

Yep! I had everything except the nuts!  Hmmm… what to do? What to do?  For some reason blueberries kept popping into my head, but I didn’t have any blueberries? I looked through my cabinets and came across Ocean Spray Blueberry Craisins! Will they go? Ach what the heck let’s try ’em!  I set my oven for 350 degrees and whipped together the ingredients!  I poured it all into a small loaf pan and popped it into the oven for 50 mins.  The result… A yummy, scrummy blueberry banana bread that goes perfectly with a cup of tea!
