I first made this strawberry bread after we went strawberry picking on a local u-pick farm and picked a humongous bucket of strawberries! We love to eat strawberries fresh and kept eating and eating them, but this bucket was so big that there was no chance of us finishing the strawberries while they are still in good condition. I already made strawberry lemonade and strawberry pancakes with some of them and was looking for another recipe to use up all these strawberries. Strawberry bread to the rescue! If you have excess strawberries from strawberry picking, you will absolutely love this recipe!
This homemade strawberry bread is actually filling and substantial. The loaf is so huge and tall! A slice of this bread is perfect for breakfast! You can make several loaves and freeze the slices in the individual ziploc bags and defrost them for breakfast. Strawberry bread for breakfast – that’s a breakfast to look forward to!
This strawberry bread recipe is very easy to make. All you need to do is mix the dry ingredients in one bowl, the liquid ingredients and mashed strawberry pieces in another bowl, then pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, mix, pour into the loaf pan and bake.
You won’t believe how good it smells while baking! Once the strawberry bread is baked, let it cool in a loaf pan, then take the loaf out and slice into slices. Enjoy!
