Helpful hints on making this Strawberry Banana Bread Recipe and other iced sweet breads.
- Grease or spray the loaf pan with nonstick baking spray well. Sweet breads have a tendency to stick.
- Do not let it sit in the pan too long (before inverting) or it will want to stay. It is best to cool on an elevated surface with ventilation like a cookie cooling rack for 10-15 minutes
- Do not frost your sweet bread until completely cooled.
- Any sweet breads with cream cheese frosting should be refrigerated and most sweet breads with fresh fruit i.e. strawberry bread, pineapple and mango should be refrigerated as well.
This Strawberry Banana Bread can be prepared and cooked a couple of days in advance but must be stored in the refrigerator. This delectable bread would make great mini loaves for holiday gifts or maybe just because you are going to brew a fresh pot of coffee!
