This banana bread has a secret. Want to know what it is? I’m sure you do.

I looooove banana bread. It’s so good for breakfast, brunch, and snacks. I’ve been known to eat way more than my fair share whenever it’s on my counter (or in my freezer). It’s especially good for a potluck or brunch because you an make it ahead of time, then slice it and serve it.

It’s even better when it’s full of strawberries and topped with a strawberry glaze, did you know that?

Okay, okay. You want to know the SECRET to this banana bread? Here it is:

It’s made with…

PANCAKE MIX! Yes, that’s right. This bread starts with Krusteaz Pancake Mix. You just add a few other ingredients, like banana and strawberries, and then bake it. It turns into BREAD!

So, let’s get this straight: Banana Bread that’s made from pancake mix. Like eating pancakes in bread form but they don’t taste like pancakes, they taste like banana bread.

*mind blown*

Not only did I throw a good handful of freshly chopped strawberries into this bread, but I also made an easy strawberry glaze using strawberry extract. Feel free to just use vanilla extract, if you prefer, but I like that punch of strawberry flavor.

However you make this, it’s a keeper banana bread recipe. Serve it for brunch…if it makes it that far!

  1. Can we talk about how creative you are right now, Dorothy? Oh my goodness. I would never have thought to use pancake mix. This loaf looks too good, especially with that strawberry frosting on top! 

  2. Well, this is seriously amazing! I’m in love with that gorgeous topping 🙂 I’ll have to make my strawberry banana bread again and include this glaze!

  3. Oh I’ve never had a banana bread made with pancake mix before! Very interesting! And I love the strawberry banana combo…looks so gorgeous, Dorothy!

  4. Well, that was unexpected. Who knew it’s possible to make such gorgeous banana bread with pancake mix? Mind blown. Excuse me while I pick up pieces of my brain off the floor.

  5. Pancake mix?! Shut. Up. No, not really. But I didn’t know you could do that! Yet another use for my favorite versatile boxed mix!
    This looks incredible, right down to the pink glaze. Pink. I mean, it’s so happy!

  6. I don’t know about anybody else, but I’d be happy just eating that glaze/frosting!! Someone hand me a spoon!

  7. What a fantastic idea. Who wouldn’t want a banana bread that was reminiscent of pancakes? YUM! And the strawberries have me longing for spring. 🙂

  8. This banana bread looks awesome! Now that it’s almost officially spring, I’m alllll about strawberries 🙂

  9. Genius! Can’t believe you came up with this idea…and…that it worked! When I have ‘creative ideas’ sometimes they don’t exactly work out too well…LOL.

    I love strawberry banana bread so much!! And I bet that glaze is just perfect!

  10. Can you use bisquick?

  11. I can taste the strawberry banana just by looking at this bread. So creative!

  12. Beautiful, with the glaze!  Could you substitute raspberries for the strawberries?  I don’t know if they would have the same moisture content.

  13. Where can you buy buttermilk pancake mix in the UK?

  14. What can I substitute for the pancake mix?
