Strawberry Banana Bread

I found this recipe a couple of years ago on Pinterest when I was searching for things to make with my annual flat of Poteet strawberries. This bread from Positively Splendid is indeed, splendid. It is moist & delicious. The best thing about this recipe is that it makes 2 loaves of bread – one for me & one for you!

Strawberry Banana Bread


  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (approximate 2 large or 3 small)
  • 1½ cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two loaf pans. I also line my pans with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the butter and cream cheese together with an electric mixer. Gradually add the sugar, beating well to combine. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the butter/cream cheese mixture, mixing just until combined.
  4. Add the vanilla and mashed bananas, mixing on low speed to incorporate.
  5. Fold in the strawberries just until they are fully incorporated into the batter.
  6. Divide batter between the prepared pans, spreading evenly with a spatula.
  7. Bake for 1 hour, until a cake tester inserted into the center of each loaf comes out clean. After 25-30 minutes you may need to cover the pans with a foil shield to prevent the tops from getting too brown.
  8. Once done, cool for at least 15 minutes. Remove from pans and serve.
