Strawberry Bread

A post shared by Niechelle Wade (@sunhfarm) on

If you freeze your own strawberries, by now you may be looking for new ways to enjoy them, a departure from the ubiquitous waffles or ice cream.

One recipe I really enjoy making is Strawberry Bread. I was given this delicious quick bread recipe from my local Broome County Cornell Cooperative Extension

I was given the recipe proportioned to make 1 loaf, but I have doubled it because with 4 teens I always make 2 loaves. And, honestly, even if you have a smaller family, since you turned on the oven you are better off baking two loaves. You can freeze one for later or give as a gift! ūüôā

Make this recipe with fresh berries in Summer, or thaw your frozen berries, then puree.
