(depending on hunger)
Dry ingredients:
1/4 cup brown sugar,
3/4 cup white sugar,
2 cups all purpose flour,
1/2 tsp salt,
1/4 tsp nutmeg,

1/4 tsp cinnamon,
1/2 tsp baking soda, 1.5 tsp baking powder
Wet Ingredients:
1 cup fresh strawberries (thinly sliced)
2 medium, ripe bananas (mashed)

4 ounces cream cheese (melt 40 sec in microwave)
2 eggs, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/4 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp Orange Zest
Prep: Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and stir together. Mix all wet ingredients together in a separate bowl (note, mash bananas with potato masher in separate bowl and combine with other wet ingredients). Fold dry ingredients into bowl w/ wet ingredients and mix well (but gently). Grease a 9”x5”x3” baking pan. Pour batter into baking dish. Bake for 55 minutes on 350 degrees. Test doneness by inserting toothpick in center. If it removes cleanly, then it's done. If not add more baking time in 5 min increments (and check again). When done cooking, let it cool for about 10-15 minutes. Serve while warm with butter. Or serve warm with my Special Spread: Heat for 30 sec in microwave, 2 oz cream cheese, 2 Tbsp butter.
