Instructions

For the Strawberry Banana Bread:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat eggs until frothy, add brown sugar and mix until creamy. Add vanilla, bananas, and butter and mix well. Add the strawberries and mix on low until just combined. Add the flour mixture and beat on medium speed until well mixed, scraping down the sides at least once.
  3. Spray or grease a 4 x 8″ loaf pan well, pour in the batter and spread evenly in pan. Add sliced strawberries to the top of the batter if you like.
  4. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until the sides will be just starting to pull away from the pan (toothpick should come out clean). Allow to rest in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.

For the Cheddar Chive Bread:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Put Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix, sugar, salt and baking powder to a mixer and mix. Set aside. Add the water, eggs and canola oil to the dry, and mix for 3 minutes on high. Gently mix in the cheese and chives until just combined. Spray or grease a 4 x 8″ loaf pan well, pour in the batter and spread evenly in pan. Add extra chives to the top of the batter if you like.
  3. Bake in preheated 350° oven for 8 minutes. Slit the top of the loaf, lower heat to 325° and bake for 30-35 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan and resting on a wire rack. Use a serrated knife to slice loaf or freeze loaf before slicing.
