Blueberry Banana Bread – YUM

Affiliate Disclosure
Blueberry Season is here!  Tomorrow I am going blueberry picking with my younger three children and father-in-law.  I am very excited about it.  If you are new to blueberries, there are a few things to know.  They freeze beautifully.  Do not wash them before you freeze them.  Lay them in a single layer on a pan and flash freeze them, then transfer them to your baggies or other containers and quickly put them back in the freezer. 

 Always taste before you pick.  Some blueberries are super-sweet, some are quite tart.  Always ask the folks who own the farm which is the type you are seeking.  Blueberries are much easier to pick than strawberries because they grow in bushes.  You can stand up while harvesting.

Once you have all those terrific blueberries, you will want to do all kinds of yummy recipes.  Here is a terrific one I found a couple of years ago when I had some over-ripe bananas. 

Blueberry Banana Bread (From

1 cup butter

2 cups sugar

4 eggs

3 cups flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 cup of buttermilk

3-4 very ripe bananas

1 cup walnuts (optional)

1 cup blueberries, rinsed and drained.

Cream together butter, sugar and eggs.  Combine flour, salt, and baking soda.  Alternate adding dry ingredients and buttermilk to creamed mixture.  Mix well.  Beat 200 strokes.  Fold in bananas and blueberries.  Bake in greased and floured pans at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour.   This makes two loaves.

I have been avoiding buying bananas since the price jumped up, but I will have to make an exception for this recipe

    MMMM, I have it in the oven right now! I just happened to have some overripe bananas and we just went blueberry picking ourselves.
    In fact, I found your blog while searching for a recipe for Blueberry Banana Bread!

    BTW, I put my blueberries straight into bags without freezing them on trays first. If you don’t wash them first, they still freeze without clumping together. Saves a step. This time the berries we picked were wet from rain the night before so I did put them on trays first, then into the bags. You can also use a straw in the corner of the bag, seal up to the straw, hold carefully while sucking the air out of the bag. Quickly finish sealing bag while still sucking on the straw. This “vacuum” seals the bags.

    Thanks for you wonderful website/blog!
