Megans Cookin: Strawberry Bread with Strawberry Butter

Strawberry Bread with Strawberry Butter


Every year around Febuary, I start getting so excited for the strawberry patches to open. Of course, they don't open till the end of April, but strawberrys stay on my mind all Spring, till I can sink my teeth into those big fresh juicy berries. There is nothing as good as local grown, fresh, perfectly ripe strawberrys. To sustain me through, till fields yield their glory, I used frozen for this quick bread.

I made mini loaves and it reminded me of zuchinni bread. The strawberry flavor is very sutle and the cinnomon seems to take center stage. Then add your Strawberry Butter and your taste buds start singing. This butter would be good on waffles or scones too.

Perfect with a cup of coffee or tea. Morning, noon, or midnight munchies. I'm submitting it to Gretchen Noelle of Canela and Comino, who has selected quick breads for this month's Homegrown Gourmet.

Looks great! I had some frozen strawberries from last summer that I made strawberry from last month. It was really good, but I need to make it again and try to lighten it... so much oil I don't want to try to figure out the calories in it! Yikes!

I made strawberry bread once, but that was with frozen strawberries. Maybe when fresh strawberries go on sale, I'll try this. The store has blackberries on sale, so maybe I could sub for them.

I am going to post about Marye's package, but I wanted to get my new layout done. It needs a few tweaks with the margin spacing. This layout reminded me why I am not a computer science major lol

It looks delicious. I've never heard of strawberry butter before, but now I'm looking forward to strawberry season, too. I always put up big batches of strawberry freezer jam. It's my husband's favorite.

Megan - Strawberry Cream Scones are one of my favorites so I can imagine that strawberries in a quickbread are especially delicious! Thanks so much for participating!
