I love this bread. It doesn't have any bisquik in it. It's just very tasty. I got it published in a fundraising cookbook and have alot of people tell me how good it is. You could make it in a bundt pan as well, just adjust the time. I have never been able to wait until it is completely cool before I eat it. Total recipe time does not include time to cool.

I love banana bread! And adding blueberries was such a good idea. This bread taste great, but the bottom of the loves started to get too brown from being on the lowest oven rack so moved them. Also used buttermilk instead of yogurt and cooked for 55 min total.
This is very good and thanks to others who tried it and submitted reviews, I used vanilla yogurt, added 2 c. of blueberries, baked in bundt for 1 hour and added 1 1/2 t. cinnamon. Worked great - good texture and flavor. It's the best of both worlds. Thanks very much for posting!!!!
kree is right this bread is very good i floured the blueberrys even though they were frozen to keep them suspended in the batter thank you for posting this i also used blueberry yougurt cause thats what i had
