A moist banana bread paired with sweet strawberries. Perfect for breakfast, dessert or summer snack.
Hi guys, I'm back being a part of an awesome summer roundup with some other awesome bloggers. If you remember a couple months back (let me take the time to mention to you here that "couple" for Caribbean people does NOT mean 2. It can be 3, 4, 5, 10, 100. Everything greater than 2)
I did a roundup of potatoes and I did my fried stuffed potatoes that were a hit. Well, considering it's now summer, this time, the focus is on strawberries. South Florida has them in "Ah bun dunce" now so I gladly opted to contribute a moist banana bread, with the addition of some chunks of fresh, sweet Florida strawberries. The perfect snack for the summer heat.
I looove banana bread. I am the "buy banana, hide banana, to use the banana" person in the house.
You will find bananas wrapped in brown paper bags hidden behind the oil in the cupboard because I do not want anyone to use the bananas. I like to use ripened bananas too to make my bread. That way I can use less sugar and the bread is just naturally sweet. Then incorporate some chunks of sweet strawberries. I make sure to use strawberries that are firm i.e no bounced skin. Those I just pop in my mouth or freeze them for smoothies.
I love that banana bread is an easy fix. Smash, mix and bake. Doesn't require any fancy equipment and amazing technique. It's all about simple food! Do you have a lot of strawberries around this season? What are your plans for them?
