Strawberry Banana Bread Ingredients
4 Large Over Ripened Bananas*(1)
2 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter Room Temperature
2 Large Egg
4 Heaping Tablespoons Sour Cream
1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 & 1/2 Cups Sliced Strawberries Tossed in 3 Tablespoons of Flour
Sweet Cream Cheese Ingredients
16 Ounces Cream Cheese, room temperature
6 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
4 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
2 Large Eggs
First, spray the bread pans with oil & preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mash the bananas on a plate, removing any bad spots, & set them to the side.
Sift all of the dry ingredients, except the sugar, in a bowl & set to the side.
In a separate bowl blend 1 cup sugar & 1/2 cup butter into a cream. Then add one egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in 4 heaping tablespoons sour cream & 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract.
Mix the mashed bananas into the wet ingredients until combined.
Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, just until combined, & do not over mix.
Fold in your flour covered strawberries.
Pour 2/3rds of your strawberry banana bread batter into 2 bread pans.
In a medium bowl blend 16 ounces cream cheese, 6 tablespoons sugar, 4 teaspoons vanilla extract & 2 eggs. Blend until combined.
Divide cream cheese mixture between both loaves & top with the remaining strawberry banana bread batter.
Bake for 45-50 minutes. Once golden brown cover with foil and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
*1. I often use defrosted frozen bananas, just be sure to remove any excess water.
