Strawberry Bread and Butter Recipes

Baked Loaf of Strawberry Bread
I shared a recipe for strawberrycake in a prior post.  If you really love strawberries, you may like strawberry bread and butter.  My husband makes the best strawberry bread you ever tasted.  It is sweet, moist, and dark pink.  Every time he makes it, someone asks for the recipe.  The original recipe includes strawberry butter to put on top, when the bread comes out of the oven.  The bread is good enough to eat without the butter so he does not always make that.  However, the strawberry butter is really good for breakfast.  You can put it on biscuits, English muffins, bagels, pancakes, bran muffins, waffles, or toast.
