  • Total Time: 70 Minutes
  • Yield: 10-12 Slices 1x


Units Scale
  • 4oz (1/ 2 Cup) Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 100 grams (1/2 Cup) Granulated Sugar
  • 100 grams (1/2 Cup) Brown Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs, at room temp.
  • 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 12oz (3 Medium) Very Ripe Bananas (measured without peel)
  • 4oz (1/2 Cup) Sour Cream/ Greek Yogurt
  • 250 grams (2 Cups) All-Purpose Flour/ Plain Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Frozen Blueberries or Fresh Blueberries tossed in 2 Tablespoons of Flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C and grease a 1lb Loaf Pan or a 9X5 loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl mash the bananas with a fork. Add in the butter, sugars, eggs, vanilla extract, and sour cream. Mix until fully incorporated. 
  3. Place a fine mesh sieve over the bowl and sift in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gently fold in the flour-coated blueberries, do not over-mix or you will cause the blueberries to bleed their color too much.
  4. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before removing from the pan. Let cool on a wire rack. Store at room temperature unless you live in a warm climate store in the fridge.
