Homemade Strawberry Bread (Strawberries & Cream Bread)

We love this homemade Strawberry Bread! It’s made with fresh strawberries and tastes like Strawberries and Cream (aka Strawberries & Cream Bread).

Try using other fruits/berries in it too – this is a very versatile recipe and is my ‘go-to’ fruit bread. 

Strawberries and Cream Bread

This Strawberry and Cream Bread is one of my favorite breads to make. A slice of this makes a super delicious breakfast, snack, brunch, or dessert. It’s easy to make and so full of flavor. Plus, it’s so easy to switch up with different fruits. Don’t feel like strawberries? Use peaches or blueberries – blackberries or raspberries. Even apples are delicious!

It’s amazing both warm and cold. It’s good plain BUT if you want an extra special treat, try it warm with a smudge of Nutella on it. Oh my… It makes me swoon just a little. 😉

Strawberries and Cream Bread

If you have any left over after a couple of days, make a few slices into French toast. It’s amazing, you guys!

Or, really level up your breakfast game and use this Strawberries and Cream Bread in my Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast.
