This randomly came to me when I had a whole carton of strawberries that looked like they were on their last leg, and a ton of leftover frosting from when I made cupcakes the week before. I basically referenced my banana bread and zucchini bread recipes and created a hybrid and added strawberries to it. Then I melted some of the leftover frosting I had and drizzled it on the top to be a sort of glaze. Had no idea how it was going to turn out but I absolutely loved it! Instead of the glaze next time, I may just incorporate white chocolate chips
