This recipe was terrible! i'm a advanced baker and this was by far the worst banana blueberry cakes i have ever baked! It took for ever to make and came out very heavy and did not rise well at all, i even tried them in 12 large size muffin pans... way to heavy of a loaf pan recipe. waste of time!!!!

This recipe was amazing. Very moist. What i did was reduced the flour the 1 3/4 cups and added half a cup of oatmeal. I also added an extra banana and it made all the difference! I would make this recipe again any day!

This was yummy!! I don't have 2 loaf pans, so I made one loaf and 24 mini muffins (baked 24 min)! They came out so cute! I noticed, however, that it took about 10 extra min for my loaf to bake than the time indicated. I was afraid the top would burn before the center was set, but all turned out well! I will be sure to keep this recipe bookmarked for the next time I run across a sale on fresh blueberries!

I have to agree with my fellow reviewers: this is a keeper for sure! I made a double batch and got 24 regular-sized muffins (bake time 20-25 mins) plus 2 loaves. My kids had friends over, and they decimated the muffins in the blink of an eye! I substituted unsweetened applesauce for half the butter to cut the fat, and I had to increase the flour slightly to compensate for the increase in liquid. I doubled the blueberries but kept the banana amount the same because I had only 6. Next time, I will double the banana as well. Everyone agrees that this is a scrumptious recipe and can't wait to have the loaves tomorrow for Easter breakfast. Thanks for another great recipe, Kittencal!

Before making this recipe I decided to make 12 jumbo sized muffins instead of the 2 loaves, as directed. I made otherwise exactly as stated and I want to tell you, these "muffins" are terrific! Very moist, rich and loaded with flavor in every bite : ) The banana with the added blueberries are a flavor combination that can't be beat. You have the moistness of the banana bread and the added deliciousness of a power-packed blueberry! How could this possibly miss? Now that I have 12 jumbo muffins, I will wrap each individually and freeze them for a treat whenever I want! Kittencal, somehow I knew I could count on you for the perfect way to use up my ripe bananas!! Thanks again for another great recipe shared!!

I made this last night. I too used the mini loaf pans, so cooking time was hard to judge, and it didn't rise much, but OOOOHHH, the taste is AWESOME. I'll be making more of this bread.

This is a very nice loaf. Mine didn't rise very much, so the mini loaves look a little dense, but they still taste wonderful! I included everything on the ingredients list and I'm glad I did because the cinnamon gives it that fantastic little extra flavour! Thanks!

Wow! We love this! I made 4 miniature loaf pans and 1 full size loaf. The mini loaves took 42 minutes and the full size took 50. They started getting really brown early on and yet the center was still quite liquidy so I was afraid they were going to burn. But everything worked out fine and nothing got burned. The bananas and blueberries taste so good together, I never would've thought to combine the two. I did add the optional cinnamon as I think it makes most anything taste even better :)
