What is a Quick Bread?

Any bread baked without yeast is referred to as a fast bread. Rather than utilizing yeast, they are leavened using baking soda or powder, and many are made sweet, although most yeasted breads aren’t sweet. Quick breads include zucchini bread, banana bread, and any of the traditional sweet breads.

Strawberry Bread Ingredients

  • It’s strawberry season! Fresh strawberries However, frozen can also be used if the season isn’t right.
  • Our preferred flour is all-purpose.
  • Sugar: We use a blend of white and brown sugar, being careful not to use too much brown sugar as this can overpower the strawberries’ inherent sweetness.
  • Eggs with Vegetable Oil: Canola oil or any other neutral-flavored oil might be used instead.
  • Baking soda is what gives this fast bread its leavening effect.
  • vanilla extract
  • Salt: Just a little pinch

Recipe Tips and FAQs

Can I use butter instead?

Yes, to put it briefly. Long answer: if you use butter instead of oil, the crumb of this strawberry bread will be thicker and less moist. Additionally, butter has a far stronger flavor than oil, so it will eventually “compete” with the strawberry flavor. Naturally still great, but with this one, we’re going with oil.

Fresh vs. Frozen Strawberries

Although it is usually better to use fresh, frozen can still be used. Just make sure they’re completely frozen to avoid giving the bread any additional moisture.

Don’t over-mix!

Unlike yeasted bread, which has to be well mixed to activate the gluten, you don’t want to do so with a sweet fast bread like this one since it will lead to an unevenly cooked, tough loaf.

Can I freeze Strawberry Bread?

Naturally, of course! You can freeze this bread, just like any other beloved sweet bread, and enjoy it throughout the winter whenever you’re pining for fresh strawberries.
