Recipe courtesy of the Very Blueberry cookbook.

Makes 1 loaf

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3 bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat oven to 350. Coat a 3 by 8 inch metal loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. (Note: Ovenproof glass conducts heat more than metal does, so if you're using a glass loaf pan, decrease the oven temperature by 25 degrees). In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, vanilla, butter, and bananas and mix well. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add all liquid ingredients all at once. Stir only enough to moisten. Add the blueberries and gently fold in and turn into the prepared pan. Place in oven and bake for 1 hour 30 minutes or until top is golden brown. Bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
