How to make Strawberry Banana Bread

  • Make the bread batter.

    • Cream sugar and butter together with an electric hand mixer in a large bowl or using a stand mixer.
    • Add eggs, mashed bananas and milk, mix until well combined.
    • In a small bowl, combine gluten free flour, ground cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
    • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined.
    • Hand mix in sliced strawberries.
      • Quick Tip! I like to reserve a few of the sliced strawberries to place on top of the bread before baking. This is not necessary, but makes for a prettier presentation!
  • Bake the bread.

    • Spray a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan with cooking spray or coat with butter.
      • Quick Tip! Do not use cooking sprays labeled as “baking” for gluten free bread, as they usually contain flour and therefore are not gluten free.
    • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
    • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
    • Allow to cool completely at room temperature (approximately 30 minutes – 1 hour) before removing from the pan and slicing.
