Easy Strawberry Banana Bread

Another recipe to be collected for the kids, possibly for school lunches treats (although it is a lot of sugar, so maybe, a weekend treat?). In any case, I love the combination of flavours, so let's take a look.

You will need: 
 10cm x 22cm (base measurement) loaf pan
 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
 1 cup (220g) brown sugar
 1 teaspoon baking powder
 2 overripe bananas, mashed
 2 Coles Brand Australian Free Range Eggs, lightly whisked
 150g butter, melted
 1/2 cup (125ml) buttermilk
 1 cup (130g) chopped strawberries
 Strawberries, halved or quartered, extra, to decorate
Strawberry buttercream
 75g strawberries, finely chopped
 1 tablespoon caster sugar
 125g butter, softened
 1 1/2 cups (240g) icing sugar mixture

  • Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line the base and sides of a 10cm x 22cm (base measurement) loaf pan with baking paper, allowing the 2 long sides to overhang.
  • Place the flour, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl. Whisk the banana, egg, butter and buttermilk in a medium bowl. Add the egg mixture and chopped strawberry to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 mins to cool before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, to make the strawberry buttercream, combine strawberry and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 5 mins or until the sugar dissolves and strawberry breaks down. Cook for 2 mins or until mixture thickens slightly. Set aside to cool.
  • Use an electric mixer to beat the butter in a bowl until very pale. Gradually add the icing sugar, beating well after each addition. Beat in the strawberry mixture.
  • Spread the strawberry buttercream over the top of the banana bread. Top with halved or quartered strawberries.
