Nonstick cooking spray, for the loaf pan

1 overripe banana 

2/3 cup sugar 

8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt 

1 tablespoon orange juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

1 large egg 

1 teaspoon baking soda 

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup diced ripe peaches 

1 cup blueberries 


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with overhanging parchment and spray the parchment.
  2. Mash the banana in a medium bowl with a fork. Add the sugar, butter, yogurt, orange juice, vanilla and egg and whisk.
  3. Mix together the baking soda, salt and 1 1/2 cups of the flour in a bowl. Fold the dry mixture into the banana mixture with a spatula. Toss the peaches and blueberries with the remaining 2 tablespoons flour and fold into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then use the overhanging parchment to transfer the loaf to a rack to cool completely.
