Banana and Blueberry Bread

Makes 12 slices

Blueberries are in season and cheap at the moment, so I'm using them wherever I can - blueberry muffins, blueberry compote and just on their own. Here, I've added them to kick up this already heavenly and super easy to make banana bread a notch. Eat it for breakfast, toasted or as is, or for a morning or afternoon snack alongside your tea or coffee. 

What's in it? 

200g overripe banana (about 3 medium bananas)
50g unsalted butter
140g brown sugar
125g skim milk
2 eggs
1tsp vanilla bean paste
260g self-raising flour
40g plain flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
250g fresh blueberries (or frozen, defrosted)

How do I make it?

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray large loaf tin with oil and line with baking paper. 

2. Place banana in mixing bowl and puree for 10sec / speed 8. Set side. 

3. Place butter in mixing bowl and melt for 2min / 60°C / speed 1. Add sugar, milk, eggs, vanilla and reserved banana and mix for 5sec / speed 3. 

4. Add flours and cinnamon and mix for 10sec / speed 3. 

5. Finally, add blueberries and mix for 10sec / reverse / speed 3. 

6. Spoon into prepared loaf tin, level top and bake in oven for 1 hour. When finished, remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 to 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. 

5 ProPoints per slice.
