Its the second Thursday of July and hence the reveal day of
BEHIND THE CURTAIN DESSERT CHALLENGE !!
This month, the two ingredients that Sheryl wanted us to include in our desserts were Blueberries and Lemon, a marriage made in heaven ! i however had a hard time to keep the marriage intact. you see, i had made some very lofty plans for this round of the dessert challenge. but when plan A and plan B failed miserably and left me with just a few blueberries and a few hours in hand, i resorted to this humble Blueberry Cherry Banana Bread, which by the way is also vegan....
Though its just another Banana Bread, its really quite tasty. I made it for the first time a few weeks back when i had two over ripe bananas at my disposal. and then when a new pack of bananas arrived i kept two aside and let them ripen so that i could make this loaf again. yes. this loaf is that good. once you have tasted it, you'll want to come back to it over and over again..
I adapted this recipe from FatFree Vegan Kitchen. Her loaf is oil free and is a tad-bit healthier than mine. But i had to make a few additions and substitutions, because i couldn't imagine a banana bread otherwise...
