Happy Friday!! I'm SO glad it's finally the weekend!! I'm excited to get in the kitchen, spend time with my family and relax!

This Buttermilk Banana and Blueberry Quick bread would be a great addition to your weekend breakfast!! It's ready in less than a hour and it's soooo good warm with some butter smeared on each slice. My daughter also loves bringing it for snack at school, or eating it after school when she gets home. 

I love most any quick bread recipe, but this ones especially good with the buttermilk added in. The blueberries also add a great punch of flavor. We really liked this one! Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the loaf pan.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until combined. Beat in the eggs, buttermilk and vanilla until combined. Then beat in the mashed bananas. Slowly add flour mixture, beat until combined, then fold in the blueberries. Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack, then remove from loaf pan.
