Bananas and strawberries are two of my favorite fruits and they are even better when they are paired together. This banana pound cake with strawberry puree is the perfect combination of the two.
The cake is super moist and the strawberry puree is not too sweet and is a delicious, fruity companion to the cake.
I suggest using the banana pudding if you can get your hands on some. Also, make sure your bananas aren’t too green.
I used my KitchenAid mixer for this recipe and it has a 4.5 quart bowl. The bowl was full to the top so keep that in mind when choosing your mixing bowl.
