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.

How to make Strawberry Quick Bread
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 flour mixture 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 on a wire rack before you slice 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.

Frequently asked questions
If you want to enjoy the flavor or strawberries year round, you can use frozen strawberries. Simply substitute the same amount of frozen berries for fresh in the recipe. Place them in the batter directly from the freezer. The bread will be a little more moist which is never a bad thing.
You can store this strawberry loaf in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. You can also slice the bread and cover each slice with plastic wrap before freezing. This stays good in the freezer for up to 2 months.
