Prep

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 8-10 pieces

Ingredients

2 large eggs
1/4 cup water
1 medium brown-spotted banana, mashed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 cups Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix
1 cup strawberries, chopped
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/8 teaspoon strawberry extract
2-3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1-2 drops red food coloring, optional 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8x4 inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Place eggs, water, banana, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a blender and blend until smooth. Stir together oil and sugar in a large bowl. Add banana mixture and the pancake mix and stir until combined (batter may be slightly lumpy). Stir in chopped strawberries.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 30-40 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

To make frosting: whisk together powdered sugar, remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, strawberry extract and 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream until a thick glaze forms. Add another tablespoon of heavy whipping cream and whisk until smooth, adding more as needed for desired consistency. Stir in red food coloring, if desired. Frost cooled bread and slice to serve.
