Foodie Friday – Strawberry Bread

Strawberry Bread 5
.
Late April and early May is Strawberry Season in Texas – there are lots of Strawberry Festivals held around the state to celebrate the first fruits of the coming summer.

This wonderfully delicious sweet bread uses frozen strawberries, so it can be made any time of the year, but I thought it would be nice to honor their annual debut by posting this recipe now.

This makes a wonderful gift to give friends and family at Christmas, and it is always a hit at holiday parties!
