Strawberry Bread – aka your summer bread

Strawberry Bread is all I can think about… honestly I am all about the berries right now and especially strawberries.

Strawberry Bread Time!

Y’all I am so, so excited about this bread.  Not only is it super quick to make, but it is LOADED with strawberry goodness.  I mean just look at all the strawberries!  

The bread itself is pretty dense, making it perfect to hold the strawberries in place, and not let them sink to the bottom of the bread.  It is also buttery, which I so love!    It is on the sweeter side… but not too sweet.  

It is just so pretty!

Not only is it delicious but it is so pretty.  I love how the berries get all roasted on top as it bakes.  This is going to be my go to treat for hostess gifts this summer.  For a sweet little hostess treat I will probably use mini loaf paper pans and then wrap them in cellophane.  

I mean would you be mad if you got a cute little strawberry bread loaf?

A little extra something…

To add a little extra crunch to the bread to topped it with some course sugar.  I mean why not?

This is totally optional but I love the caramelized edges the bread gets and also the little bit of crunch.  If you do not have the course sugar you can use regular granulated sugar.    Let’s be honest a little extra sugar with strawberries is really never a bad idea… right?

No strawberries… no problem

If you wanted you could use different berries.  Blueberries or Blackberries would be amazing.  

You could use them with the strawberries or on their own.  Just make sure the fruit is about 2 cups total… that way you get fruit in every bite.
