Cinnamon Blueberry Banana Bread.
Cinnamon Blueberry Banana Bread.

I thought I’d go healthier by substituting in blueberries for chocolate in my usual banana bread. And then I decided to make it less healthy by turning it into French toast.

A few other notes:

  • The chopstick test will almost definitely come out with some clingers because of the excessive blueberries and bananas.
  • Use salted butter to grease the bundt pan because it adds flavor and texture as I think it helps the outside get a bit crusty.
  • Because of the frozen blueberries and abundance of bananas, I ended up having to bake for 72 minutes.
  • Banana bread should be made at least one day before you want to make French toast. The bread comes out super moist, so you want it to cool and set before you go about dipping slices into your egg wash.
  • Without the foresight that I was going to turn this into French toast, I baked the bread in a bundt pan, which made cutting even slices a big pain in the butt.
  • I REALLY enjoyed pairing this French toast with Wood’s bourbon barrel aged maple syrup.
