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!

  1. For the strawberry banana bread, change the pan size to two 8 x 3 loaf pans, which is perfect! I saw a lot of reviews that there was not enough batter to fill two 9 x 5 loaf pans, and I knew what the problem was. Thanks!
    Moist and delicious!

  2. Omg, this was so delicious!!! Instructions were clear. Baking time was perfect. Would like to experiment with different fruits/veggies and whole wheat flour next time.

  3. If you use self rising flour do you still need baking powder and could i use Stevia instead of sugar? It looks delicious!

  4. I am interested in making your Strawberry Banana Bread.. the recipe calls for 3 Bananas.. about how much in measurements, ie.. cups??? might that be?? Bananas come in different sizes..

  5. I am allergic to leavening agents. Is there a way to make this without any baking soda or baking powder? Maybe beating the eggs/whites?

    1. Yes, that sounds great! You are welcome to alter any recipe that you need to in order to meet your needs. It just may alter the taste and texture of the recipe when finished.

  6. I love cooking and would love have new recipes I am from the Caribbean St Vincent Grenadines .

  7. Someone mentioned adding some sour cream for moistness but I can’t find the post. I assume that would replace some of the butter (1 to 1) ? I think you could also use plain yogurt. Both sound like they’ll enhance the flavor with the extra tang.
