Mini Loaf Banana Blueberry Bread

You know how it is when bananas pass that stage of being just ripe enough to eat?

It’s when they get a few too many brown spots on them.

The only way not to waste them at this point is to let them sit on the counter and tell yourself that you’ll make banana bread out of them.

Has this ever happened to you? 

It happens to me all the time and I feel sooo guilty when I don’t have time to make the banana bread and have to throw them away.

This banana bread was a result of one of those times when I went a little too crazy buying bananas that were on sale.

The good news is, this banana blueberry bread is really delicious and with the glaze on top…it’s really really delicious.

Hope you’re having a nice weekend!

Let’s check out the ingredients.

For the Bread; very ripe bananas, flour, sugar, blueberries, eggs, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and butter.  For the Glaze; powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.

 
Here’s how to make it.

For the Bread:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl add the butter,

and the sugar.

Then beat together.

Next, add the eggs.

Here’s where I got way too fancy schmancy for my own good.  I decided to try and crack an egg with one hand.

And guess what, it didn’t work.

So I fished out the egg shell from the batter, and on I went with the recipe.

Next, beat the eggs in with the butter and sugar mixture.

Sift together the flour.

Sometimes I don’t take the time to sift the flour but when I do, it seems like the bread is much lighter.

Add the baking powder….

….baking soda…

…and salt.

Then,

add the dry ingredients a little at a time to the butter and sugar mixture.

And beat the mixture each time after adding the dry ingredients.  

In a separate small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork.

Then add the mashed bananas to the batter and mix together.

Next,

add the blueberries,

and gently mix them into the batter with a spatula.

Grease the mini loaf pans (8 mold mini loaf pan tray – dimension of 16.06 x 10.12 x 1.57) or add paper liners.

Distribute the batter evenly into each loaf pan or paper liner.

Bake for about 45 minutes,

or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the bread comes out dry.

Remove the loaves from the tin and let cool.

For the Glaze:

Add the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl and mix together.

If the consistency of the mixture is too thick, add just a touch more milk.  The glaze should be wet enough to drizzle.

Next,

drizzle the glaze on top of each mini loaf.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

Really Really Delicious.

Enjoy!

Super delicious with butter too.

Great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

  1. Love this recipe. Tried it once without the blueberries. They were still divine. Will try it again with some berries.

    Thanks again!

  2. Where can I find mini loaf pan liners?? The ones you’ve used here are so cute and all I can find are plain white ones.

    Thanks!
    Judy

    • Hi Judy, I found these liners at Michael’s Craft Store in their dollar-bins by the check out counter. It was one of those things where I wasn’t looking for them but happened to see them. But you’re right, I sure don’t see the colored ones often. Maybe it’s something you can find online on their site or perhaps other sites like this store. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

  3. Sounds delicious! I do have a question on your liners. Where did you ever come across such adorable paper liners?

    • Hi Crystal, I bought them at Michael’s Craft Store. I found them on one of their mark-down racks and just loved how dainty they looked. I haven’t seen them since. One of those things that you find when you’re not looking for them. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
