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!

Absolutely fabulous. Says it all. I did exchange the oil for unsweetened applesauce, just to keep fats lower. OMG..lolol.. as I am reviewing this I see i forgot the skim milk completely. Well all i can say is i would never have known *blush* until i read it. It is moist and wonderful
Amazing bread! Almost like lemon poppyseed muffins, but with a strawberry kick. Thanks so much!!
