- Grease and lightly flour a 9x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside. In a saucepan, combine UNDRAINED berries and cornstarch. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. If desired, sieve berry mixture; set aside.
- In a small bowl, stir together 1 1/2 cup flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
- In a medium bowl, beat 1/2 cup margarine with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 30 seconds or until softened. Add 2/3 cup sugar; beat until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating on medium speed until combined.
- In a separate bowl, combine banana, milk and vanilla.
- Alternately add flour mixture and banana mixture to beaten egg mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined.
