Pin It


Happy Wednesday folks! Today I have a delicious treat for you to help you get through the rest of the week. Delicious and moist Strawberry Bread topped off with a sweet Strawberry Butter. I have to say, the strawberry butter is what took this recipe from great to pretty damn amazing.  If you can, please make both and try them together. The recipe for the yummy Strawberry Bread comes from Closet Cooking. Many thanks to Kevin for allowing me to post the recipe from his website!
