  3. Add whole blueberries to the batter and mix them in to distribute evenly through the batter.

  4. Butter a 4x8 inch loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper, butter the parchment paper too. Pour the batter in the pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove the banana bread from pan and slice to serve.
