Banana–Blueberry Bread


2¼ cups all-purpose flour
1½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter, room temperature
¾ cup brown sugar
2 extra-large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ⅓ cups mashed overripe bananas
½ cup fresh blueberries
½ cup pecan, optional


Preheat the oven to 350º F. Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan, sprinkle some flour over and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla for 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in the flour mixture and beat until blended, about 2 minutes. Fold in mashed bananas, blueberries and pecan, if using. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 60 to 65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and let cool. Slice the bread and serve. Enjoy!
