I made these as muffins, omitting the orange zest and nutmeg, as I wanted a pure, strawberry-banana flavor. I also left 1/2 cup of the strawberries chunky, which added some texture and color. Yum! my husband's staff loved them too...all gone by 10:00! Read More

I don't understand what happened! The inside of this bread turned out to be a sponge like consistency and the outside is crispy! I don't even know if my hubby that will eat ANYTHING will even take more than one bite! I am very disappointed that I wasted my time and the money to try this recipe! I will go back to my standard of the banana bread with sour cream recipe! That one is a winner Read More

It's taken a long time to find a really good muffin mix. This one made 26 medium muffins with good size caps. I just chopped the bananas and strawberries to give some great texture. I left out nutmeg, orange zest and nuts as a personal preference, and added a splash of vanilla extract. It took about 32 minutes at 350! YUM YUM YUM Read More

This is a great recipe! To get more of the strawberry flavor that other reviewers said they couldn't taste I put the strawberries in sliced instead of mashed. I did let the beaters whip them around a bit but the berries were still chuncky. My family thinks that it is great. I am making this a permanent resident in my recipie box. Read More

Great bread. As another reviewer suggested I added a 1 1/2 cups banana I had frozen. Also I didn't have any oranges so I added 1/2 tsp lemon extract and 1 tsp vanilla extract. I also used 3/4 c. unsweetened strawberry apple sauce and 1/4 c. veg oil instead of 1 c. veg oil and used a little less salt. Also I used fesh strawberries and half chopped half mashed them so there were chunks of strawberry in it. Highly recommended came out great! Read More

This one is a keeper. I ommited the nutmeg (wanted more of a strawberry flavor)and used lemon instead of orange zest. Total I used 1 pound strawberries and 2 bananas. I mashed one cup of the strawberries and then chopped up the rest (rolled them in flour ... and they didnt sink!). This is really really good. Moist, kinda like a poundcake. Will make again. I'm using this in a fruit trifle. Read More

WOW!!! I was surprised with this one. I had some bananas and strawberries I had frozen (for a long time). I thawed them out to use and wondered if it would taste ok. Well... we loved them. I made muffins and cooked for 30 mins. This recipe goes in my make again. Read More

This was a SUPER HIT with my whole family. I can't wait to try a low-fat version with applesauce in place of the oil!! Read More
