Banana Prep - Oven Method

  • Cut the ends off of the bananas and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Make a cut all the way down the length of the bananas. Makes for easy removal from the peel.
  • Roast @ 300 degrees for 40 minutes - Roast 4 bananas

Making Blueberry Banana Bread

  • First Mix The Wet Ingredients
    Add the roasted bananas to the KitchenAid mixer along with the eggs, sugar, vanilla, vegetable oil. Mix until combined.
  • Second Mix The Dry Ingredients
    Using a sifter, (avoid lumps of flour), sift all dry ingredients over the KitchenAid mixer.
    Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, salt, cinnamon,
  • When you turn on the KitchenAid mixer the KEY is to not over mix. You will develop gluten and will toughen the Blueberry Banana Bread.

Blueberry Prep

  • Mix flour and sugar in a bowel. Measurements aren't important. Just be sure you have enough to coat the blueberries. Half & Half
  • Add the frozen blueberries to the flour and sugar mix.
    This step will help the blueberries NOT sink to the bottom of the cookware.
    Skip this step if you want the blueberries to sink to the bottom

Finishing Steps

  • Using a bread baking dish/cookware, spray with vegetable oil, or wipe down with a paper towel with vegetable oil. Sprinkle the turbinado sugar all over the cookware. Pour out the excess.
  • Add half of the batter to the cookware.
  • Next, add the blueberries. Use a much as you like.
  • Then add the remaining batter.
  • Do not overfill the cookware or the blueberry banana bread will extend too far upward while cooking. The bread will increase in height as it cooks. So do not overfill the cookware.
  • Add turbinado sugar to the top to a nice sugar crunch

Baking Instructions

  • Place in the middle of your oven. Bake for 1 hour in preheated 375 oven.
    Be sure to check on the banana bread during the baking. All ovens do not cook the same and timing may need to be adjusted.
  • Once the timer is up to check for doneness with a toothpick. You want the toothpick to come out clean. Check the deepest part of the cookware.
