Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1 loaf
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 1 ⅔ cups (8oz/225g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (4oz/115g) granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 ½ cups (12oz/360g) bananas (around 3 medium bananas)
  • 1 large egg
  • cup (2 ½ fl oz/71ml) flavorless oil (Sunflower, vegetable, canola)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup (3¾oz/106g) blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter a 9x5 (23 x 12.5cm) inch loaf pan and line with parchment.

  2. In a large bowl stir the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon together.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix the mashed bananas, egg, oil, and vanilla extract.

  4. Combine the dry ingredients with the mashed banana mixture until just combined. Do not over-mix.

  5. Fold in the cup of blueberries and spoon into the prepared loaf pan.

  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes until the loaf is golden brown and springs back when pressed gently with your finger. Leave in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

  7. Enjoy warm! Store leftovers at room temperature for 3 days or freeze in an airtight container for up to 2 months. Defrost at room temperature in the container for a few hours.
