The strawberry recipes keep on coming and I’m not done yet! When I took the littles strawberry picking last month, we had SO many strawberries left over. So many. When thinking of things to bake with all the strawberries, I thought about what would be easiest to share with the neighbors. Therefore, muffins and breads were what I decided on. They’re easy to give, can make enough to share with a bunch of different families and don’t call for an abundance of ingredients, making them inexpensive to make. Especially since we picked the strawberries, getting a great deal on them.
Before making these strawberry banana loaves, I already made strawberry muffins. They were gone within an hour after making them after the littles snatched them up and deliveries were made. Since I had a handful of ripe bananas at home, I decided that is the route I would go for the next creation.
Banana bread is one of my favorite breads to make, why not add in fresh strawberries for a twist on the classic. I decided to add in walnuts as well, which made these mini loaves even tastier. This one recipe made 4 loaves. I kept one for myself and the littles. Then, I packaged another up for my parents and the neighbors. In one weekend alone, my neighbors received strawberry muffins, strawberry banana muffins and strawberry lemon muffins (recipe for those coming next week.)
If you find yourself with an abundance of strawberries this spring, add these recipes to your baking list. Your family and neighbors will be grateful!
