  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup white whole-wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil or grapeseed oil
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 2 bananas)
  • ¾ cup chopped fresh strawberries


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat an 8½-by-4½-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Beat cream cheese, butter and oil on medium speed in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add sugar; beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture alternately with banana, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Fold in strawberries. Spoon into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 65 to 75 minutes. (Shield with foil after 45 minutes, if needed, to prevent excessive browning.) Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool completely, about 1½ hours.

Really good & moist. I enjoyed it and used all-purpose+buckwheat flour & turbinado sugar, because that's what I had on hand.

Made this bread today and my husband loved it! I used light cream cheese instead and frozen strawberries. I threw everything in the mixer including bananas and berries and then poured it all in a pan. Baked to 65 min and it was perfect! Very moist and delicious!
