Moist Strawberry Banana Cake Smothered in Butter Cream Cheese Frosting is Simple and Perfect for Dessert and Parties! 

Strawberries and Bananas married together perfectly for a Berry Banana flavored Moist Dessert! Why did we Puree the Strawberries? Basically it is preference, we love Strawberries but not whole Strawberries in Baking! Making a Strawberry Puree Reduction was the perfect way to get the berry flavor without chunks of Strawberry and still keep the cake MOIST! Our Carrot Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Banana Cupcakes were the inspiration for our VERY MOIST Strawberry Banana Cake! The creation of our Creamy Butter Cream Cheese Frosting a few years ago is the only frosting we use, it’s that creamy and delicious!

Strawberry Banana Cake:

2 Cups White Flour (try not to use bleached or enriched white flour, we like King Arthur Flour )
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
3 Ripe Bananas Mashed
1 Cup Homemade Strawberry Puree
(16 oz Frozen Strawberries, see Instruction #1)

1 Cup Butter Melted (Real butter, NO MARGARINE)
2 Eggs


Cream Cheese Frosting:

1 Cup Cane Sugar
1/2 Cup Real Butter
2 8 Ounce Packages Cream Cheese

TIP:

We only used 2 8 Ounce Packages of Cream Cheese instead of the 3 8 Ounce Packages that is in our Original Creamy Butter Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe because we were not layering the cake, it is a Sheet Cake!

Strawberry Banana Cake Instructions:

1. First thing to do, make the Strawberry Puree! Thaw out a 16 ounce bag of Strawberries. Put the entire bag in a Blender and Puree. Now put the pureed strawberries in a pan on the stovetop at Low heat, simmer for about an hour. Make sure to stir occasionally!

Tip: Fresh Strawberries can be used, add about 2 Tablespoons of water to Blender, Follow Instruction #1!

This process is called Puree Reduction. The Strawberry Puree needs to reduce by half and become thicker! When the Puree is done, it will look like this! Set Aside and Cool Completely, this makes about 1 Cup!

We don’t eat a lot of desserts but if we do, they are our own creations from our kitchen! Lots of mistakes have been made, it took a couple of years to get the Moist cake we love! Our Banana Bread recipe has been the inspiration behind most of our Baking! Obviously, we are Banana fans and there are always those really ripe Bananas hanging around! Check out our other yummy Banana or Pumpkin recipes!

1 thought on “Strawberry Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting”

  1. Really loved this cake you made on my 42 birthday. Loved the strawberry banana combination with the cream cheese frosting. Really enjoy that all your cakes don’t leave the bad sugar aftertaste because of the small amount of sugar needed, and the natural products you use.
