Brown Butter Strawberry-Banana Nut Bread

I usually don’t like anything with nuts in them, but I realized that almost everybody does. If I’m going to have other people eat the things I make, I’m going to have to adapt to their taste buds. I mean it’s not bad with nuts…I’d just rather have it with chocolate chips or something! This is for you bby because you’re fruity & nuts, LOL jk, because you love strawberries & nuts ♥

Brown Butter Strawberry-Banana Nut Bread adapted via Joy the Baker

  • 2 c. all purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 3/4 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 6 T. unsalted butter, browned to 4 T.
  • 1 1/4 c. or 3 mashed bananas
  • 1/4 c. plain low-fat yogurt (or buttermilk)
  • 1 t. vanilla bean paste
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 c. coarsely chopped pecans, toasted and floured
  • 1 c. diced strawberries + 1 sliced strawberry

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Butter and flour a loaf pan. Prepare and measure all of the ingredients. All the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt) can go into one large bowl.
  2. Brown butter on medium heat. As the butter begins to foam and crackle, swirl the pan. Once the butter begins to brown and smell amazing, take it off the heat a pour it into a glass bowl to cool.
  3. As soon as the butter cools, whisk it together with the mashed bananas, yogurt, vanilla, and eggs.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently fold…be sure to not over mix! Fold in the pecans, and then fold in the diced strawberries.
  5. Carefully pour the batter evenly into the prepared loaf pan, and scatter the slices of strawberries on top. Bake for 50 minutes.
