Brown Butter Strawberry Banana Bread!!

Yesterday at work was "Tasty Thursday" again and it was bread day! When I first thought about it, I thought wow I have actually never made bread. But luckily Laura reminded me of fruit bread, duh!! 

So I was trying to decide on what I should make and I ran across this little slice of heaven!

As soon as I read the recipe I knew I was making it! The best part, it is very simple!

Here are all the ingredients:
Salt, Brown Sugar, Flour, Plain Yogurt, Baking Soda, Cinnamon, Bananas, Eggs, Strawberries, Vanilla and Butter  

You start by greasing and flouring a bread pan and turning the oven to 350*F

Next melt ½ cup of butter on medium heat on the stove. You are going to be browning the butter so you will want to wait till you hear the butter start popping and foaming. Once this happens it is a few more minutes until the butter starts to brown. When it starts smelling like nuts, it is done. Pour into a bowl and let cool.

Popping and Foaming Butter

Browned Butter Cooling

In a small bowl mash 3 bananas and let sit while you get everything else together.

Mashed Bananas

In a large bowl whisk together 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, ¾ cup brown sugar, ¾  ground cinnamon, and ½ teaspoon salt.

Dry ingredients

In a smaller bowl whisk together 2 large eggs, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, and ¼ cup plain yogurt. Mix in the mashed bananas into this mixture and when the butter has cooled mix this into the wet mixture as well.

All the Wet Ingredients put together

Add all the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl all at once. Fold the wet into the dry mixture trying not to stir too much. Make sure you scrap all the dry ingredients off the bottom of the bowl. Then fold in 1 cup of thinly sliced strawberries.

Wet and Dry Ingredients Combined
Now with the Strawberries Added

Use the spoon and pour the batter into the bread pan. Cover the top of the bread with thinly sliced strawberries.

What it looks like Before it goes in the oven

Cook bread for 50 minutes to an hour, or until you stick a toothpick in and it comes out without batter.
