What better way to welcome spring than with this sweet strawberry bread! Yogurt makes this bread very moist and almond extract makes it sweetly delicious! Tint the icing pink if you wish, for a pretty, spring-y look.

Zero stars. Mine was a gooey, nasty, uncooked mess. It stuck to a non-stick loaf pan that was sprayed with PAM! The edges that did cook had no strawberry flavor. I wish I had my ingredients, time, money and energy back. I followed the recipe precisely. Don't know what went wrong. I've never had such a disaster. Maybe it was my oven. I don't blame anyone but myself.
This was very good! I think next time I may use just slightly less strawberries. I used vanilla yogurt as that is what I had, but it was probiotic so I figured it couldn't hurt to add some good for you stuff in there! My company loved it!
YUM! I had a bunch of fresh strawberries to use up and this recipe fit the bill. I used almost all whole wheat flour and substituted applesauce for half of the butter. Because I doubled the recipe, I ended up with 2 decent sized loaves. The bread doesn't rise that much, so the loaves turn out smaller than expected. But, I love the taste of the almond - adding the slivered almonds is a must. I didn't even make the topping - the bread was just fine without it and would be too sweet, in my opinion, with the glaze on top. Thanks for a really unique treat!
