Strawberry Bread with Strawberry Cinnamon Butter 9Ah, strawberry season! I am so glad it’s here. Each week, I buy a crate of them and we usually have them finished within a few days. My toddler son loves them. If he sees the container, he starts yelling “bee berries!” until we get some for him.

In the rare occasion that we don’t have them all finished, I try to find ways to use them before they go bad. This strawberry bread is a perfect way to do that, similar to how you’d make banana bread from something you’d likely throw away.

The strawberry and cinnamon compound butter is the perfect topping for this simple bread. It really helps to bring out the sweetness of the strawberries and the slight spiciness of the bread, and couldn’t be easier to put together. 

Start by combining the wet ingredients; strawberries, eggs and oil. 

Next combine the dry ingredients and slowly mix them into the wet. My son loved helping with this part! 

Bake the bread for 45-50 minutes. My original family recipe calls for 50-60 minutes, but I feel that it makes the bread too dry.
