Right when I took the bread out of the oven I knew it would be a huge success. It just had that promising perfectly browned top that was sure to yield an amazing slice of banana (and strawberry) goodness.
And sure enough, I was very right. The bread was devoured! The whole family chipped in, eating at least one piece, and by the end of the day the whole loaf had disappeared completely.
But most importantly, my dad enjoyed it, which was pretty much all I wanted.
here. And, trust me, use the optional strawberries.
I remember that banana bread was one of the few things my dad could make really well. He would whip up a loaf whenever the bananas turned so brown that no one would dare touch them. I'm pretty sure the first time he made it he had to convince me that he hadn't used the ugly banana because otherwise I wouldn't even go near the loaf.
Anyway, add this recipe to your collection. The strawberries add a nice twist and it can easily be made non-fat by using a certain type of milk.
