Time to use the leftovers!

Standard

Whose ready to have some Banana & Blueberry bread with a cup of tea? This just happened by chance today, as I had some over-riped banana’s and blueberries left to use … so put it all together with a few other ingredients and what do you get? Ta-daaa ….

Banana & Blueberry Bread

The original recipe belongs to ‘Joy of Baking’ website. But I have tweaked it a little bit to suit my own taste and re-written it my own way.

Sliced Banana & Blueberry Bread

Ingredients:
All Purpose Flour: 1 & 3/4 cups
Baking Powder: 1 tsp
Baking Soda: 1/4 tsp
Caster Sugar: 1/2 cup
Brown sugar (packed): 1/4 cup
Cinnamon Powder: 1 tsp
Bananas (mashed): 2 (large)
Eggs: 2 (large)
Unsalted butter (melted): 1/2 cup
Vanilla Essence: 1 tsp
Blueberries (fresh): 1/2 cup
Walnuts (chopped): 1/4 cup

Method: 
Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line the base of your loaf tin with parchment paper and grease the sides.
In a bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients i.e. all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, caster sugar, and cinnamon powder. Add the blueberries and mix together with the help of a spoon or spatula.
In another bowl, add and mix all the wet ingredients i.e. mashed bananas, eggs, unsalted butter and vanilla essence.
Carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients bowl. Fold the mixture with the help of a spatula just until all the ingredients are well-combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Pour the batter in to your loaf tin, and bake in your pre-heated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Allow the bread to cool completely before removing from the loaf tin.

Congratulations! Your Banana & Blueberry bread is now ready to be enjoyed with a cup of tea. 🙂
