STRAWBERRY BANANA BREAD WITH LEMON GLAZE

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 3/4 cups butter, melted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice

Instructions

  • Smash bananas and strawberries with a fork.  The strawberries won't smash very well, so just keep smashing until the bananas are fully mashed up.
  • Add the eggs, applesauce, butter, sugar and vanilla.  Cream entire mixture together.
  • Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Stir lightly.  Add the dry ingredients to the banana/strawberry mixture and stir with a spoon just until mixed.
  • Pour the batter into 3 well-greased loaf pans.  Bake at 300 for 45-60 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow the finished loaves to cool in pans for 10 minutes.  Remove from pans and place on a cooling rack; cool completely.  While bread is cooling, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice in a mixing bowl and stir well to create a smooth glaze.
