Ingredients 

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (this is 2-3 medium size bananas)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups, plus 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of 9×5 or 8×4 inch loaf pan.  In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter.  Beat in the eggs.  Add the bananas, milk and vanilla and continue to mix.  In another smaller bowl, combine the 2 cups of flour, baking soda, salt and nuts.  Mix together and add to the wet mixture. Mix together until the dry ingredients and wet ingredients are well combined. Cut up 1 cup of strawberries in small pieces.  Add 1 tablespoon of flour to the strawberries and toss.  This will prevent your strawberries from sinking in the mix.  Add the strawberries into the mixture, folding in gently.  Pour into your prepared loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.  Cool in pan for about 5 minutes, remove.  Cool completely on a wire rack. Wrap the bread and store in the refrigerator.

Until next time, Kris
