Blueberry Banana Bread

blueberry banana breadMiss F was an excellent helper when making this bread. For the first time she didn't get flour everywhere when she stirred, so I see that as a major success.  She insisted on having a slice straight from the oven.  And then she ate it in the strangest way, she picked out all the bread portions first, ate them and then ate all the blueberries.  Silly girl.  It's blueberry season around here, so if you have some to use, I recommend adding it to this recipe or your own banana bread recipe.  I adapted this recipe from Straight from the Farm.
Blueberry Banana Bread

1 ¾ cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup butter, room temperature
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 large ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease one loaf pan. Set aside. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the eggs to the butter and sugar mixture. Stir in half of the bananas, then add half of the flour mixture. Stir in the remaining bananas and then the remaining flour mixture. Fold in the blueberries. Pour batter into the greased loaf pan and bake for an hour or until golden brown and springy to the touch.
