Banana-Blueberry Buttermilk Bread

July/August 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (296 votes)

The slight acidity of buttermilk tenderizes and moistens baked goods while allowing you to cut way back on butter or oils. Here, it also lends a slight tanginess to the winning combination of bananas and blueberries. To make muffins instead, see Muffin Variation.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This recipe was so easy to make. It was very moist and tasted so good. I added 1/4 cup choped pecans for crunch. Only thing I had a problem with was the outside cooked quicker than the inside. I baked it for the time the recipe called for...

Very moist and tasty!

I had to bake this about 20 minutes longer than listed, but after reading other reviews checked it at 25 minutes and covered it loosely with foil to prevent the edges from burning as they were already getting very done. That saved it, and gave it a nice chewy crust while remaining moist and tender inside. I added a lemon's worth of fresh zest (about 1 tablespoon) to the batter. This is the first bread with blueberries I've made where they didn't all sink to the bottom.

Easy, holds together well

Not bad, but needs help

This is ok, but is in serious need of some vanilla. At least 1/2 t., maybe a full teaspoon. Also, it took 1 1/2 hour to bake - before that the knife inserted in the center came out literally wet with batter! That said, I would make it again because I like the texture, but would be sure to add vanilla.

good texture

Really delicious

I usually bake my quick breads at 350°, but I was really delighted that this came out perfect at the suggested temp and time. I used whole milk plain yogurt instead of buttermilk because that's what I had on hand. Moist crumb, not too sweet.

Easy to prepare
