Fresh strawberry bread is so quick and easy to make. It's a must try for any strawberry lover.
I've been eyeing this recipe from My Baking Addiction (Jamie) for strawberry bread since the day it was posted. I found it interesting for three reasons.
One, I would never have thought to make fresh strawberry bread and this would be a good experiment with my favorite fruit. Two, for once, I sort of actually already had all the ingredients in my kitchen. We always have a stock of strawberries in the fridge since it is just about the only fruit that my toddler will touch without putting up a fuss.
Three, there was a piece of me that thought I could get more calories into my little fussy eater this way but I was wrong. He would not touch it. On the other hand, I almost ate the whole loaf after it came out the oven! I had to stop myself by wrapping up half of it.
The bread was moist and had a strong strawberry flavor. It reminded me of eating strawberry shortcake but without all the cream. If I had vanilla ice cream on hand, I might have had a scoop with some cubed up strawberry bread tossed on top.
Jamie's recipe for fresh strawberry bread is quick, easy and delicious. The next time I need to serve guests for brunch or tea time this will definitely be on my list.
I also highly recommend it if you are looking for something to take to your host or hostess. Her recipe uses buttermilk but I had to substitute it with an equal amount of yogurt. It still turned out great! I have not posted the recipe because it is not mine. Please follow this link to My Baking Addiction if you are interested in trying it out.
