Had some fresh strawberries left over from a fruit tray & didn't want them to ruin, so I decided to make this bread. Boy, am I glad I did. It was very easy & delicious ~ especially warm. Definitely a keeper!
really delicious! i was distracted while assembling the ingredients and didnt sift the dry stuff and it still came out great. i assume it likely denser than it would be typically but my family gobbled it up. i also used an old trick of 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup of brown sugar in place of 1 cup of white sugar. super yummy!
Very moist and tasty cake! Thanks.
