Blueberry Banana Bread

It was my turn for "Pit Stop" at work recently.  Pit Stop is a little bit of team building that we do each week.  Our team is so busy and always on the go here, there and everywhere else that we bond over food once a week.  On payday Fridays our Culinary Arts students provide a campus wide "Pit Stop" for any staff to attend (and our team always goes together) and on non-payday weeks, we take turns providing "Pit Stop" for our team.  The "rules" for "Pit Stop" are simple - there are none!  We can buy our treats, make our treats - and there are no rules on what the treats are to be (sometimes it is ice cream, we used to get amazing cupcake...KSL...) - anyways, it was recently my turn, and I had been craving banana bread, but of course, wanted to add a little twist.  I dud use my standard banana bread recipe, and amended it slightly.  Here is the recipe:

Blueberry Banana Bread (Adapted from Company's Coming, Muffins and More)
Blueberry Banana Bread | Addicted to Recipes

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup bananas, mashed (approx 3)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup blueberries

Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare loaf pan for baking.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar, beat in the eggs, one at a time.  Beat until smooth.  Mix in the bananas and vanilla.

In a second bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Add to the wet ingredients, stir just to combine.  Add in the blueberries, stirring slightly.

Pour the mixture into the loaf pan.  Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.  Remove from oven, allow to cool for 10 minutes, then turn onto a rack to cool.

Everyone at the office seemed to enjoy the bread :-)  That's good!  My family sure did too...just like most banana breads, it didn't last long in our house!
