Fresh Strawberry Bread

Less than six months ago very few of my co-workers knew of my blog; however, the cat made its way out of the bag and now pretty much everyone knows. I don’t really know why I did not tell people, I guess I’m kind of weird {read: anxious} like that and did not want anyone to judge my work.

Now that My Baking Addiction is common knowledge in my workplace, my coworkers seek me out to make their cakes, cupcakes and even search for recipe ideas. My coworker Janet also loves to bake and approached me asking for recommendations for a strawberry quick bread recipe. Her son is getting married this summer and she is interested in baking and serving a variety of breakfast items to their wedding guests. Her son loves strawberries, so she definitely wants to incorporate this fruit into her breakfast menu.

I had never made strawberry bread, so of course I was compelled to get into the kitchen start experimenting. I just so happened to have a pound of stunning organic strawberries in the fridge…if you have never experienced an organic berry, definitely pick them up sometime, the flavor is truly amazing. I cannot wait until organic berries are readily available at my local farmers market!

After a little trial and error, I came up with a super moist, semi-dense, flavorful bread bursting with strawberry flavor. This strawberry bread is perfect for breakfast and is quite brilliant when lightly toasted and smeared with a little cream cheese. I love the texture of this recipe base and have plans to incorporate some wild blueberries into it in the very near future.

Have a delectable day, thanks so much for stopping by My Baking Addiction!
