Strawberry Lemon Loaf

Recipe by PaulaG

My dearest friend, Carol, was the inspiration behind this recipe. There was a recipe published in this month's issue of Light & Tasty. It gave me some ideas and this bread was the end result. It is perfect as the base for fresh strawberry shortcake. Hope you enjoy!

This is a delicious sweet bread recipe with nice lemon flavor and aroma. The only trouble I had was the strawberries all shifted to the bottom of the loaf, which left the bottom somewhat soggy. Even so, it was still a yummy treat. We served it as dessert at our backyard Memorial Day picnic with fresh strawberry sauce and a dollop of whipped cream. Thank you for a lovely recipe!
