It is finally starting to feel like spring outside, so that has been making me really happy. I cannot believe that it is almost May already, this year has been going really fast. With the beginning of May comes Cinco de Mayo. I always like to make recipes for Cinco de Mayo. When I think of the holiday, I think of margaritas. My favorite margarita is a strawberry margarita, so I love making recipes with that flavor. This year I decided to make some Strawberry Margarita Banana Bread.
Even though I always make recipes for Cinco de Mayo, I usually don’t celebrate the holiday once. We may have Mexican themed food for dinner, but that’s about it. The only time that I can remember celebrating Cinco de Mayo was when I was in my last year of grad school. During my last year of grad school, my last day of finals ended up being on May 5. My husband and I went out with a bunch of my friends from grad school and we decided to celebrate being done with school. My husband was our designated driver since it was a Wednesday night and he had to work the next day. I am usually not much of a drinker, but I did a bunch of tequila shots that night. That will probably be the first and last time that I go out to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
This Strawberry Margarita Banana Bread was do delicious and is a great treat and would also be good for breakfast or dessert. I really liked the combination of the banana bread with the strawberry and lime flavors. I then added a strawberry margarita glaze on top of the bread, that gives it even more strawberry margarita flavor. This bread has no alcohol in it, so it’s good for the whole family, but you can always feel free to add some.
This bread would be the perfect way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Add in a strawberry margarita and that would make it even better. The strawberry and lime flavors in this banana bread would make it good for any day of the year. My husband brought this to school and everyone devoured it. I can’t wait to make this delicious bread again. I hope you enjoy it!
