Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add creamed mixture, beating just until combined. Stir in bananas. Fold in blueberries.
  2. Pour into 3 greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 40-45 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
Blueberries
If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
