Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Bread

We made banana bread from a mix last week and the whole family enjoyed it. My Quirky Girl and I decided to snaz it up with some extra ingredients this time! You know we like snazzy!

7-Pour resulting glaze over loaf after removing from pain, let drip down the sides…yummmmm! My glaze turned out a little thin and lumpy, but the bread still tasted awesome!
