Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease or spray bottom only of 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  • 2
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from heat; pour through strainer into small bowl to remove blackened bits.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes. Stir in eggs until combined.
  • 4
    Add bananas, buttermilk and vanilla; stir until smooth. Add flour, baking soda and salt; stir until just combined. Fold in strawberries. Pour into pan.
  • 5
    Bake 1 hour 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (Cover loosely with foil if top is browning too quickly.)
  • 6
    Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely before slicing.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts to batter for extra crunch.
  • tip 2
    Don’t have buttermilk? Mix 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice with regular milk to make 1/2 cup to achieve the same tangy flavor of real buttermilk.
