Banana~ Blueberry Bread

Happy Saturday~
Oh I was doing the happy dance this morning when I woke up to a crisp~ cool morning. It is a beautiful day here. After such hot days I am soaking up the cool air. 

This week I could not help myself when I spotted a huge bag of ripe bananas at the Grocer for only $1.00. I was just waiting for this cool morning to bake them up.  I have been wanting to try this recipe and it is so good and moist.

I am making an Amish size batch to use all those bananas. I made the recipe times four and it turned out wonderful. 

Blueberry-Banana Bread

1 cup mashed bananas
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 pecans~ chopped
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 5/8 cups of flour
3/4 cup of frozen blueberries or 1/2 cup of fresh

Dredge blueberries in 2 tablespoons of flour. Gently stir blueberries together with oats and nuts, 1 1/2 cups flour, soda, and salt.

In mixing bowl cream shortening, slowly adding sugar until light and fluffy then add eggs one at a time. Beating the egg after each addition. Stir in mashed bananas.

Mix the blueberry mixture with the creamed mixture~ stir until moist and well mixed.

Pour into greased and floured bread pan and bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes and then remove from pan to cool completely on a wire rack.

That sounds real good, it has been so hot here I have not baked in a while, looking forward to cool weather again, some out of the 90's any how.

Good Morning Friend~

I think that we will have an early Autumn if the Farmer's Almanac is right. Sure hope so!
