Snow Day Baking - Banana Blueberry Walnut Bread
Sometimes snow days make for the best days, don't they. ;)
We didn't "have" to go out anyway so it wasn't a problem to stay home during our last snow days. I had bananas that My Honey noticed were calling out to me: "Banana Bread!" So, I obliged and made banana bread.
While mashing those bananas I realized there weren't quite enough of them so I added some fresh blueberries. I came up with one of the best quick breads we have had in a long time. Of course, quick breads are more like cake than bread, but "bread" sounds so much lower in calories than "cake." It's definitely not!
I used the basic banana bread recipe from my Mom's Betty Crocker Cookbook (every recipe my Mom ever made started with "1 cup sugar") plus those blueberries and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg.
