Blueberry Banana Crumb Cake Loaf

Good stuff… My concoction I made today, Blueberry Banana Crumb Cake loaf.  It turned out really good.  I hate throwing away really ripe bananas and fresh fruit that I don’t eat fast enough, (when they get a little wilted).

Sometimes I throw fruits like strawberries and blueberries in the freezer to use at a later time.  They are great for making smoothies, pancakes, coffee cakes etc…  I also freeze the leftover coffee cakes and pancakes I’ve made to use later.  Basically there is no waste, great for the budget!
