This Strawberry Bread has a beautiful golden brown crust and is wonderfully buttery sweet with a moist texture. I love how it tastes of summer, bursting with juicy sweet strawberries. It also has some chopped nuts which give it a delightful crunch. It is delicious cut into thick slices, with or without a slathering of butter.
Strawberry Bread is made a little differently than other quick breads that are just stirred together in one bowl. This bread is similar to a cake batter; that is, the butter is beaten with the sugar, the eggs are beaten in, and then the dry ingredients are added alternately with the sour cream. You can use either full fat or reduced fat sour cream or even a plain yogurt. For the nuts, you can use either pecans or walnuts.
Since fresh strawberries are available year round, you can make this bread any time of the year. For maximum flavor, though, use fresh strawberries with lots of flavor. Cut them into small pieces so they won’t drop to the bottom of the pan during baking. And you may want to toss the strawberries with a couple of tablespoons of the flour from the recipe as this will also help prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the pan during baking.
