Just a quickie today, kids. Banana bread is one of those things that just kind of happens. We never plan on it, it's just that sometimes we happen to have three overripe bananas and that means it time. Time for banana bread. This is the thing my girlfriend bakes and this is the recipe she always uses. This time when we had bananas that were ready for bread we also had some strawberries and pecans that wanted using as well, so she tossed them in. It came out wicked good. The big chunks of strawberry and toasted pecan added great sweetness and texture to it.
When she cut up the berries she let them sit for a minute and then drained off some of the juice, so the bread wouldn't get gummy. Other than that she just followed the recipe, adding in about a cup of strawberries, cut into bite sized pieces, and a half cup of toasted, chopped pecans. I liked it even more than the chocolate chip one. So what's your favorite add in to banana bread?
