Ingredients

  • 3 very ripe bananas (about 280 – 300 g)
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup (200 g) brown sugar (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups (210 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup (230 g) chopped fresh strawberries (see notes)

Strawberry Glaze:

Instructions

  • Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 375º F (190º C). Grease and flour an 8 1/2-x-4 1/2-inch (23.5-x-12.7-cm) loaf pan. You can also use a nonstick baking spray with flour.
  • In a large bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until completely smooth.
  • Stir in the melted butter into the mashed bananas; mix until combined. Add in sugar, buttermilk, and vanilla; mix until well combined.
  • Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix until just combined.
  • Fold in the chopped strawberries. NOTE: If desired, toss chopped strawberries with 1 tablespoon of flour to avoid them sinking to the bottom of the batter.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Add more chopped strawberries on top, if desired.
  • Bake at 375º F (190º C) for 10 minutes. Then REDUCE heat to 350º F (180º C) and bake for an additional 45 - 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before removing it from the loaf pan.
  • Make the Glaze (optional): Mix all glaze ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Drizzle the strawberry bread with glaze and serve. 

Notes

 
STORE in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days or in the refrigerator for up to a week.
 
FREEZE: Let the strawberry banana bread cool completely. Then wrapped plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 3 months. For freezing, I recommend cutting the bread into individual slices and then freeze.
 
BROWN SUGAR: You can use white granulated sugar instead of brown sugar if you prefer. The bread will be a bit darker and dense, though. 
 
STRAWBERRIES: If fresh strawberries are not in season, you can use frozen strawberries. Ensure to thaw them beforehand, and then pat them dry with a paper towel to remove the extra moisture. Also, I recommend tossing the strawberries (fresh and frozen) with one tablespoon of flour to avoid them sinking to the bottom of the batter, but it’s not necessary.
 
QUICK NOTES & SUBSTITUTIONS:
If the loaf is browning too much, you can tent the loaf pan with foil during the last 10 -15 minutes of baking. The tenting tip helps to prevent the top from browning too much while baking the bread throughout.
You can swap up to half the all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour.
To make this gluten-free, use an all-purpose gluten-free flour mix. This is my favorite.
To make this dairy-free, just substitute the butter and buttermilk with plant-based alternatives.
  • Buttermilk: You can make your own dairy-free buttermilk at home (check out the recipe here). Make sure to use an unflavored, unsweetened variety of non-dairy milk. Soy and oat milk have the best consistency and very neutral flavors.
  • Butter: For baking, my fave dairy-free butter substitutes are: Om Sweet Home Non-Dairy Butter Alternative, Miyoko’s Creamery Organic Vegan Butter, and Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks.
