Strawberry Bread

We’re so lucky to work with farms like Mick Klug, and especially around strawberry season. We should admit, most of the strawberries we receive don’t make it far past the colander, but when we’re in a bit of fresh berry overload, we’ll freeze some for a strawberry bread later in the year. There’s a ton of substitutions at your disposal here, and really, any frozen or fresh fruit will work.

Strawberry Bread

Substitute any kind of fruit you'd like in this recipe, fresh or frozen. It's a great way to use up anything that might be on it's way out, and a great loaf to keep frozen for a rainy day. Feel free to substitute apple sauce with yogurt, sour cream, or even milk. Wanna get moist? Add vegetable oil or butter instead of the apple sauce, and just use 2 eggs. We can't help but recommend serving it with more butter and honey. What's that they say? Oh yeah, live a little.
