My youngest daughter loves fresh strawberries and bananas so I figured this was the perfect bread for her. I never knew everyone would love it so much 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter; softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg; beaten
  • 2 ripe bananas; mashed
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries tossed with 1/2 tablespoon flour

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray 9×5 loaf pan with nonstick baking spray.
  3. In a medium bowl, use a mixer to cream butter and sugar together.
  4. Mix egg and mashed bananas into sugar mixture until combined.
  5. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt then slowly add to banana mixture and mix until just combined. DO NOT OVERMIX!
  6. Fold in flour covered strawberries.
  7. Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 15 minutes.
  8. REDUCE heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 25-35 minutes until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
