Strawberry Sour Cream Bread



This strawberry sour cream bread is so simple to make and it tastes delicious. The texture is very similar to banana bread, but you get a little strawberry flavor in every bite – perfect to serve for breakfast or with a cup of afternoon tea. It freezes well, too!

Whenever I make this recipe, I am always tempted to slice a piece before the bread cools completely. But I have learned to wait… the texture improves drastically after the bread cools – and tastes even better the day after you bake it.

Are local strawberries showing up in your market yet? It’s a little too early for local berries here in Seattle, but the California berries are looking, and tasting pretty darn good!
