Strawberry Banana Nut Bread

by MareeT

An easy recipe for the most delicious and sweet quick bread. If you like making bread but don't have a lot of time to spare, this is a recipe for you.

The wonderful aroma of bread baking in the oven is one that I can't seem to enjoy enough. The aroma stirs appetites and spreads to every nook and cranny of the house. By the time the bread is done, hungry eaters cannot wait any longer to taste the goodness.

Strawberry Banana Nut Bread is a joy to make and even better to eat. Fresh strawberries, bananas and toasted nuts make this bread moist and full of a variety of tempting flavors. This is the kind of bread that can be eaten alone, with nothing more than a cup of tea beside it.

If you decide to serve Strawberry Banana Nut Bread with a meal, it is quite tasty with a hot bowl of soup or a crisp salad. The sweetness of the bread goes so well and balances with a savory dish. Feel like breakfast? Try toasting a slice and spread with butter or cream cheese for an "over the top" taste treat.

If you have a large family or a lot of guests, it may be best to double this recipe and make two loaves since one can go super fast!

I have not added strawberries to my banana nut bread but you can bet I will now. I would have to have a slice of this fresh out of the oven, before it cools!
