How to Make This Strawberry Banana Bread

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

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

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

  4. What can I substitute for the pancake mix?

  5. Hi, this looks really yummy. Can’t wait to try it. What can I use to substitute Krusteaz pancake mix?
