Strawberry Banana Bread!

This usper easy Strawberry Banana Bread is my favourite because it takes no special skills. Just mix and bake.

Ingredients list:

  • Bananas: 3 ripe medium sized
  • All purpose flour: 2 cups
  • Castor sugar: 2 cups
  • Baking powder: 2 tbsp
  • Baking soda: 1 tbsp
  • Buttermilk: 1/2 cup
  • Olive oil: 1/2 cup
  • Strawberries diced: 1 cup + 1/4 cup
  • Chocolate Buttons: A handful
  • Salt: a pinch
  • Egg: 1
  • Vanilla essence: a few drops

Mash Bananas using a fork and mix all wet ingredients ( olive oil. vanilla and egg) to it except the buttermilk.

Sift your dry ingredients. Now add the wet ingredients to it. Add in buttermilk now and use a rubber spatula and mix using cut and fold method. Just make sure to stop when it comes together. Take a 9 inch loaf pan and grease it with oil and dust it with olive oil. Use 1/4 th of the batter and spread it using the back of the spoon. Sprinkle 1/4th cup of strawberries. Use rest of the batter. Then press down 1 cup of strawberries and chocolate buttons. You can use chocolate chips. I was out of them so I had to make do with the buttons. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Yes it needs to bake a bit longer because strawberries will leave their juice and make it soggy. We don’t want that. And please use fresh strawberries. Wash them in Vinegar water. Rinse with a clean kitchen cloth and then dice to remove the excess water. Also don’t use them immediately after taking them out of the fridge. Let them come down to room temperature. I usually make it right after I get them fresh from the market. Take it out of the oven in 3 minutes. Don’t let it sit for long in the oven otherwise it will become dry. Enjoy it warm.
