I found a great Strawberry Banana Bread recipe and adapted it slightly. It was such a good baking recipe, I don’t even think this recipe for Strawberry Banana Bread lasted a week in our house. It’s a sweet bread recipe that is perfect for serving with coffee or tea for breakfast, a brunch, snacking or as a dessert recipe.

I also tried a strawberry muffins recipe too but, it didn’t turn out quite right. Although that one tasted amazing, they turned out a little flat, and sunken in. I’m not sure what went wrong. Oh, well. Win some, lose some.

Strawberry Banana Bread Recipe
In separate bowls; mash your bananas, wash and chop your strawberries. Set them to the side. Then you’ll preheat your oven to 350 degrees. You’ll cream the butter and sugar in your mixing bowl, next adding your vanilla, eggs and then mashed bananas. I really am enjoying my new Kitchen Aid mixer I invested in. It’s the first time I’ve ever owned own.
In a separate bowl you’ll add all your dry ingredients together. Then slowly combine and dry ingredients to your wet ingredients. Don’t over mix or stir. Lastly fold in your strawberries.
Then dump your batter into your baking dish and smooth out top. I also lightly tap the baking dish on the counter to ensure all the air bubbles get out of the banana strawberry bread batter. If you have a glass dish you can use a towel under it, but do it gently.
Bake until your bread comes out clean when checked with a clean knife. Check during last minutes of bake and adjust as needed. If top is browning too fast you can always tent foil over top loosely while finishing bake time for the inside.
Bake time will vary with altitude and ovens, bake time approximately 45 minutes – 60 minutes.
This strawberry bread is so good. It has a moist inside and slightly browned outside. Eat it as is or spread softened butter.
The next day we enjoyed this strawberry banana bread with coffee for breakfast. It tastes great with hot coffee or tea.
