Do you have a sweet tooth like me? Do you ever feel guilty about it? Same here. But I found a great way to still enjoy the sweets I love without all the added sugar. Read on to find out how and get a yummy Strawberry Bread Recipe designed to satisfy your sweet tooth. I’m sharing SPLENDA® Sweetener Products in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™” #SplendaSweeties #SweetSwaps
In the past we have made banana bread, apple bread, and cranberry bread. I love using whatever fruit is in season to bake a up a delicious loaf of bread. This spring, I have been seeing cartons of fresh, juicy strawberries at local farmer’s markets and I was inspired to try them in some baking. However, I didn’t want to use as much sugar as I typically do when baking.
I was excited to discover and try SPLENDA® Naturals products in my cooking and baking. SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener is a great tasting, no-calorie sweetener made with stevia. There is no bitter aftertaste, no added flavors, colors, and no artificial ingredients which makes it the perfect swap for sugar.
Strawberry Bread Recipe
To make this strawberry bread recipe, I started by chopping up some fresh strawberries. They were ripe, colorful, and oh-so-tasty! After I chopped the strawberries into small pieces, I sprinkled a packet of SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener onto them, stirred and set them aside.
Then I mixed the wet ingredients in one bowl, along with the strawberries and mixed the dry ingredients in another bowl. These will be combined to make a thick batter.
The batter will fill a loaf pan a little less than halfway full.
This strawberry bread recipe produces a dense bread that is loaded with strawberry flavor.
You’ll want to let it cool a bit before you cut into it as it can be delicate when it just comes out of the oven.
This strawberry bread recipe is bursting with strawberry flavor. It tastes great whether it is served warm and topped with butter or enjoyed the next day, if it lasts that long. My kids enjoyed taking it to school for a midday snack, while I savored mine with a hot cup of coffee.
