  1. This is a very easy and tasty cake.I am hopeless when it comes to baking but it came out beautifully soft and moist.I added a touch of cinnamon and next time I will also add some walnuts.Thank you for posting this lovely recipe.
  2. Not too sweet, but I topped it off with clear sugar crystals for extra texture and sweetness
  3. This was an exceptional recipe. It took no time at all to prepare. I chose to use fresh bananas and fresh blueberries. I coated the blueberries in about a tablespoonful of flour prior to adding them to the batter. This way it kept the bread from turning purple.<br/>This recipe has been added to my collection and I will be making this loaf again very soon. Thank you, Bliss.
  4. I've made these twice and they are the best. The oatmeal gives them a little more volume and the ingredients list is shorter than others. Better than the higher rated recipes. I increased the sugar to 3/4 cup to make then a little sweeter.
  5. Congrats! Your scrumptious Banana Blueberry Bread was featured on our homepage as the "Recipe of the Day" ! (6/25/11)


  1. AMAZING! This bread super good. I used brown sugar and instead of using the 1/3 cup of oil I put half apple sauce and half of the oil. Thank you so much for the recipe :)
  2. I made (10) muffins with this recipe and took them to work. Everyone loved them! I used frozen blueberries and substituted melted butter for part of the oil. I also added a tsp each of oat bran, wheat germ, and orange zest. Very moist and tasty! Thanks for the recipe.
  3. As usual, I made a few changes to the recipe. I was going to mail this bread, so I figured I would take a step out of the process and bake it in a small cookie tin, lined with aluminum foil, which worked out wonderfully. When it is baked and cooled, you just clip any excess foil from the edges and fit the lid on. This way, it's all ready to travel or give as a gift, sealed airtight. It seems that anywhere from about 2/3 to 3/4 full works well, probably about 2/3 full being ideal. I also replaced some of the sugar in this recipe with honey, which helps to add some "shelf time" to the bread before it spoils. I replaced the oil with cooled melted butter and added a tablespoon or two of sour cream. I think this would also be great with some orange zest added, will be on the agenda for next time. :)


The little cutie here is Martha, the sweet lady I was blessed to have worked with for two years. Martha passed away on 12/3/08. Martha and I would ride endlessly during the holidays, and she would sing carols and laugh and just enjoy it so much. I know this holiday season, she will be with her brother, son and mother and finally be "home". Martha, I still love you more. ******* I'm a simple girl, born of good stock. I'm the mamma of two spoiled tuxedo cats: Beauregard and Patches (the one who's been drinking eggnog). They love cuddling together, and this picture is taken on my hall steps. I'm a firm believer in LOA. I need to get more dedicated to daily practice. Below is a film that explains it, and is wonderful. I highly recommend it. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* This is Beau enjoying his computer. He's quite good at deleting messages, making the desktop disappear (as is his brother). Their path to the window is over my keyboard. <IMG SRC=""> This is Patches, planning his strategy to keep me awake, but cuddling his sock baby and trying to be cute to throw me off. <IMG SRC=""> Beau works a long week. He's relaxing finally, after a beer. <IMG SRC="">mnhj BTW, "mnhj" means "I just walked across our keyboard once again and left you a present." ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ I'm trying to figure out my new rating system. As of 10/1/06, this is how I'll rate recipes. I will be changing some previous reviews. 5*~~Outstanding recipe--the best of the best here. 4*~~Something I find delicious; will make often; would serve to guests. 3*~~Something I might fix again; enjoyed; needed something added before I try again 2*~~Something I could finish, but would never try again, regardless of additions or subtractions 1*~~Could not finish it; would not even make possums suffer with this (I haven't found many of these--only one of my own that I grabbed from the internet!!) <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="">
