Hi Everyone and Happy Monday!
Today I’m heading up to Lake Tahoe with the girls from work. Every year our East Coast and West Coast office gets together and we harmonize all of our processes. I look forward to this because I love the girls on the East Coast, there like family to me.
Over the weekend I made some goodies for my Husband so he wouldn’t go starving. I wouldn’t want that to happen or even worse he might just eat hot dogs and his new favorite find, Trader Joe’s Carmalized Bacon Dip. He eats the whole container in one sitting. I don’t know how he does that? So I made him his favorite M&M’s Chocolate Chip Cookies to for his lunches and I also made him some Strawberry Yogurt Bread for his breakfast.
This bread is amazing! It’s so moist and full of fresh strawberries. I just simple love it and I hope he will too!! It’s perfect for the spring season. I can see munching on this bread while having a cup of tea, while gossiping.
This bread is just exploding with strawberries. Since the strawberries are so sweet, there wasn’t a need for a lot of sugar. I only used a half a cup. I love when I can make a healthy, low calorie treat that is guilt free.
I made three mini loaves, so it’s easier to freeze and he can just grab a loaf and take it to work. He likes to share his baked goods with his friends. You can certainly make one large loaf, but you know me, I like the mini’s! :)
The bread baking smelled amazing! I have to say out of all my quick breads I have made this is probably pretty close to my favorite. It’s light, moist, sweet and full if my favorite fruit. I told you I would be posting a lot of strawberry recipes. I hope you like strawberries. if you don’t you could always sub a different fruit in this recipe.
