Method

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base and sides of a 10cm x 22cm (base measurement) loaf pan with baking paper, allowing the 2 long sides to overhang.
  2. Step 2

    Place the flour, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl. Whisk the banana, egg, butter and buttermilk in a medium bowl. Add the egg mixture and chopped strawberry to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 mins to cool before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, to make the strawberry buttercream, combine strawberry and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 5 mins or until the sugar dissolves and strawberry breaks down. Cook for 2 mins or until mixture thickens slightly. Set aside to cool.
  4. Step 4

    Use an electric mixer to beat the butter in a bowl until very pale. Gradually add the icing sugar, beating well after each addition. Beat in the strawberry mixture.
  5. Step 5

    Spread the strawberry buttercream over the top of the banana bread. Top with halved or quartered strawberries.
