I asked these wonderful ladies to participate in this Holiday Bake Hop post and they slapped on their aprons and started making a mess in their kitchens. You ladies are the best!

The recipe I will be sharing is Strawberry Bread. This is my recipe that I get requests to make from family and friends. If you like strawberries then you will LOVE this bread. It can also be made to add some festive spirit to your holiday menu.

Strawberry Bread - Holiday Bake Hop

    Brandy’s Strawberry Bread

3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
2 Tbsp milk
1 cup of pureed strawberries *see below  
2 eggs
1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Powdered sugar

~Preheat oven to 350’F. In a separate bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a stand mixer or a separate bowl, beat sugar, butter and milk, with an electric mixer on high until smooth and creamy. Add pureed strawberries* and eggs, mixing until blended well. Slowly add in the flour mixture while continuing to blend on low. (slow-this is so you don’t get covered in flour)

*If you use fresh strawberries, (it is better to use them when they turn a little soft) puree them in a blender or food processor. 
*If you use frozen strawberries, allow them to thaw before pureeing them.

Pour into a greased 9×5 loaf pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until done. You can check doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center of loaf. If the toothpick comes out clean, then the bread is done. Dust with powdered sugar when the bread is completely cooled. ~Enjoy~
(Makes about 10 servings)

{You can also make 2 half loaves for a quicker and shortened bake time. Divide the bread mixture between 2 greased loaf pans. Bake for 40 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar when loaves are completely cooled.}
