Strawberry Banana Bread

Yield: 12 servings

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook: 1 hour

Strawberry Banana Bread featured strawberry studded banana bread topped with sweet buttercream and fresh strawberries. It’s as delicious as it is pretty!

Everyone RAVED about this strawberry banana bread! So fresh, fruity, and scrumptious!

Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Sweet, fruity, and fresh!
Texture: The bread itself is super tender and moist, but the thick and rich frosting and fresh strawberries on top take this to a whole new level!
Ease: The frosting is definitely an extra step and a few dirty dishes than your typical banana bread, but it’s worth the effort.
Pros: Super pretty sweet bread that everyone will love.
Cons: Not quite as easy to transport or gift as unfrosted banana bread.
Would I make this again? Absolutely!

    Hi Tessa! Can I use powdered buttermilk for this recipe? What is the ratio of water to buttermilk, if so?

      Hi Ana. Unfortunately I’ve never used powdered buttermilk, so I’m really not sure!

    Hey again, Tessa! I made this with powdered buttermilk – I diluted 1/2 cup buttermilk in 1/4 cup water – it came out well, fortunately! I do think it could be yummier if I let the bananas ripen a bit more. Next time! And the strawberry buttercream is just yum! I might use the same recipe for frosting other baked goodies. Thanks for sharing!

    I made 2 loaves and brought them to work. I made one with the topping and the other without, the loaf without topping went much faster. Feedback was topping made it too sweet, although they did eat all of it. I’m very new to baking and I love all your recipes that I have tried. I live alone so bake every Sunday and bring it to work on Mondays. I enjoy all your comments that give us options for the recipe. So glad I found this site.
