How to make Strawberry Bread

 One of my favorite things about summer is that so many berries  are plentiful and in season.  While I am posting this delicious bread recipe just after the peak of strawberry  season, I know they are still easily found and still on sale in many grocery stores.  

This bread recipe is one of my son's favorites.  Back when he was in middle school and early years of high school he had a cooking series on my blog. His Cooking with Kyle recipes were quite the fan favorites back in the day, and are still available in the link at the top of my blog, and in search.

There is a little back story on the reason why there are two different bread pictures in this post. We made the big loaf first. He was so impatient to try the bread that he talked me into cutting it before it had cooled, and it fell apart before I could get more pictures. He ate almost the entire loaf by himself. He "offered" to make more for his Cooking with Kyle series.  The second time we made the bread, we mixed things up a little bit by making mini loafs, and also adding a banana. 

I love this picture of him. He was so serious when he was cooking.  

Kyle mixed the dry ingredients first 

They are:

3/4 c flour 

2/3 c sugar 

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda 

1/4 tsp salt 

He then mixed the wet ingredients 

They are:

1 1/2 to 2 c strawberries 

1/2 c softened butter 

2 eggs

2 Tbsp milk 

1 banana (if desired) 

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with either a mixer or by hand.  

He used this mini loaf pan which makes four personal size loaves. 

If you are baking a full size loaf, bake it at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes.  If you are baking mini loaves, it takes about 30 minutes at the same temp.  

If you would like to add powered sugar glaze on top, it is really easy to make.  Just add a few tablespoons of milk to powered sugar and mix until you get the consistency that you like. 

You may notice there isn't any glaze on the bread in this picture. There is a good reason for that.  Kyle was being very impatient again, and didn't want to wait to for me to make the glaze.  I was barely able to get the pictures that I did, before he made the bread disappear. :)
