There are reasonable reasons why people love all kinds of banana bread. First, you only need a few simple ingredients. Second, the dough is mixed up in one (or two) bowls super fast. And, third, it simply tastes terrific.
A simple banana bread recipe is already super tasty. But freshened up with some strawberries, ground almonds, and a chocolate glaze on top this banana bread lets your taste buds do a polka dance ;-).
For baking banana bread you don’t have to wait until the bananas get brown and overripe. Most of the time I even don’t have leftover bananas. I use them up quickly – for breakfast, for smoothies, or a simple fruity banana snack. And when I crave banana bread, there sure aren’t bananas that are overripe or brown. So I bake with the bananas just as they are at that time :-).
As already mentioned the great thing is that the banana bread dough is mixed really quick. First, you mix all the dry ingredients, and then you just add all the liquid ingredients. Off to the oven. There the banana bread has around one hour to develop its great taste and the sweet fragrance spreads in your kitchen. Mouthwatering ;-).
I’m sure you all know the typical banana bread flavor too well. The strawberries add perfectly to that with their fresh and fruity berry taste. Then there are ground almonds, some yogurt, and dark crackling chocolate on top. The chocolate is like the cherry on top of the icing on the cake :-D.
When the chocolate is still not hardened I sprinkled some edible dried blossom mix on top. Not only for the looks, but the flowers taste adds perfectly to the fruity banana and strawberry flavor.
For the recipe you can use fresh strawberries as well as frozen berries – so you can bake and enjoy this banana bread any time you want.
In an airtight container, the pieces of the banana bread stay fresh for up to 3 days. Also, banana bread can be put into the freezer, so you always have a sweet snack in the house.
