Check out this strawberry banana bread that is fresh, moist, and super delicious! I’m pretty certain that everyone has made banana bread at some point in their life. It’s a pretty staple dessert recipe and the perfect way to use up your overly ripe bananas.

Definitely not as common, but totally necessary! Please try this. It’s basically banana bread on crack. Added sweetness and moisture from the strawberries make this bread a mouthwatering choice!

How do you make Strawberry Banana Bread?

All you need is nine ingredients. First combine your dry ingredients in a large bowl, and the wet ingredients in a smaller bowl. Add the wet mixture to the dry. Then fold in your strawberries. Now just pour your batter into a prepared loaf pan and bake!

Although not necessary, feel free to add even more strawberry and banana slices to the top of your loaf before baking, if you like. It’ll add some extra colour to the crust, and is definitely visually appealing. But either way, this loaf will taste great!

Once baked, let the strawberry banana bread cool for at least ten minutes before attempting to remove it from the pan. I know it will be difficult! Your house will smell amazing, and it’s tough not to dive right in, but trust me, it’s worth the wait. Once you remove the banana bread from the pan, continue cooling on a wire rack for another 20-30 minutes before slicing. This extra setting time will allow you to easily slice the loaf.

If you’re in a hurry, and just can’t wait, you may slice sooner, but use extra care. While the bread is still very hot in the middle, slicing will be a tad more difficult, but still doable! Enjoy with a fresh pot of coffee, and additional fresh strawberries.

    I love the slices of bananas and strawberries throughout the bread – adding extra moisture and flavour. šŸ“šŸŒ
