Blueberry Banana Bread

It was a great week for free items from the grocery store.  One of the items I received was 3 bananas.  That automatically means it's time to make my family recipe of banana bread.  I wanted to tweak the recipe just a bit to add in some blueberries that I had in the freezer.  It's nice to have a burst of blueberry in every bite.

Blueberry Banana Bread

1/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cups flour
3 ripe bananas, mashed

1 cup frozen blueberries

1 tsp flour

Cream butter and sugar.  Add in eggs and mashed bananas.  Gradually add in dry ingredients.  Mix in the tsp of flour in the blueberries and stir until they are evenly coated so they don't sink to the bottom of your bread.  Gently fold the blueberries into the batter.  Bake for 75 minutes at 325° or until a toothpick comes out clean when stuck into the middle of the bread.
