  • I always add more banana since I don't add raisins.

  • Blueberry-Lemon Banana Bread with Cream-Cheese Glaze
    2 cups all-purpose flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
    3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 cup butter, softened
    1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 2 bananas) - I probably used closer to 1 ½ cups
    1/2 cup plain, Greek style yogurt
    1/3 cup sour cream (or all yogurt)
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
    1 tablespoon grated lemon rind (use an organic lemon, so you don’t eat those nasty pesticides)
    1/4 cup cream cheese
    3 tablespoons powdered sugar
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    2 teaspoons water

    Preheat oven to 350°. To prepare the banana bread, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk to combine.

  • Place granulated sugar and butter in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until mixture is well blended (about 1 minute). Add mashed banana, yogurt, sour cream, and vanilla; beat until blended. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moist. Gently fold in blueberries and lemon rind. Spoon batter into an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool the bread 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove the bread from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

    To prepare glaze, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon juice, and water, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over cooled bread
