What do I need to make Strawberry Banana Bread?

  • Butter: Allow to soften on the counter or soften in microwave about 10 seconds.
  • Granulated sugar: Adds sweetness
  • Eggs: beaten
  • Bananas: Use very ripe and mashed with a fork or mixer
  • Flour: Gives structure to the bread.
  • Baking soda: Leavening agent that causes the bread to rise.
  • Salt: Just a pinch
  • Fresh strawberries: Chopped & tossed in flour

How to Make Baked Bread

  1. Prep: Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Spray two 9×5 loaf pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Large bowl: In a large bowl, using a KitchenAid Stand Mixer with paddle attachment cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  3. Small bowl: In a small bowl, beat eggs using a fork. Add eggs to sugar mixture and beat until combined. Add mashed bananas and mix until combined.
  4. Sift dry ingredients: Sift all dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add sifted dry ingredients to banana mixture and mix until flour is just combined. DO NOT OVER MIX! Fold in floured covered strawberries.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Butter: Salted butter will also work for this. Just leave out the pinch of salt.
  • Sugar: If you love a little more sweetness, substitute white sugar for brown sugar or going healthier try coconut sugar.
  • Bananas: Use frozen bananas by thawing them overnight at room temperature. If there is any liquid from the bananas, simply discard that before mashing in the recipe.
  • Chocolate chips: Who can resist chocolate! Chocolate chips can be sprinkled on top, in the batter or both!
  • Nuts or seeds: I do love walnuts but pecans, sunflower seeds or pecans also make for an added soft crunch.
  • Fresh Local fruit: Use whatever you find that looks amazing at your local farmers market.  Try cranberries, blueberries or raspberries change this banana bread into something fresh and fruity!

    Made this during my lunch break using a mix of strawberries and blueberries. I only have one loaf pan so I used a greased 9×13 glass pan. It was done 20 minutes after reducing oven temp to 350 degrees. This recipe did NOT disappoint! It tastes as great as it smells! Thanks for sharing the recipe, it’s definitely a keeper for me!

  2. I’m making it now, do you need to remove it after the 15 mins, until the temp reaches 350? Or just reset the temp, set the timer and leave the loaf in?

    This bread turned out delicious!!! We are a Gluten-Free family so we swapped out regular flour with GF flour and added some xantham gum. Other than that we followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. It’s our new family favorite!

    Smells and looks great!! But the 30 min at 350 is definitely not long enough. I had to bake for an additional 15 min or so.

    I made this recipe last night and it was absolutely delicious and moist! The whole house smelled soooo good! Thank you for this recipe! I sliced strawberries and added a couple to the top prior to baking to make it pretty. They were a huge hit and I will definitely be making again!

      1. Thanks Alyssa, I just googled that and in the uk it’s classified as Plain flour, thanks for taking the time to respond, looking forward to making this.

    1. Yes! You can freeze individual slices or the whole loaf. I prefer to wrap loaves and slices in foil and then I place them in a plastic bag or an airtight container (Make sure to label it with the date!). The bread will last about 4 months. When you are ready to eat, then thaw the bread on your counter or in your fridge.
