Strawberry Bread recipe ~ moist, lightly sweet bread loaded with fresh strawberries and topped with a simple cream cheese glaze.

This Strawberry Bread is a simple to make quick bread, meaning no yeast or kneading and it takes full advantage of the abundant crop of Florida strawberries coming north this time of year.

Keep the recipe on hand in early June too when bright red, sun-sweetened homegrown berries can’t be beat. Because the bread isn’t overly sweet, a thick slice is delicious with morning coffee and equally good for dessert in the evening. Bonus: it whips up in less than 10 minutes.

Mini Strawberry Pies ~ just 5 ingredients to delicious, simple, bite size pies loaded with fresh sweet strawberries in a flaky crust.

If you like strawberry pie, you’re in for a treat. My husband said these Mini Strawberry Pies took him back to the ones his aunt used to bring him as a special treat from Sanders where she worked when he was a little boy. They remind me of the mile high strawberry pie at Elias Brothers Big Boy’s, one of our favorite restaurants when our girls were small.

We spent a lot of Friday evenings in those vinyl booths scanning the menu only to order the same thing each time. It was a great way to wind down the week but the girls’ favorite part was after dinner when we’d head across the street to K-Mart so they could choose a new outfit for their Barbie (who already had an enviable wardrobe).

Maybe you’ll find some nostalgia in these pies, too. There are just 5 ingredients to make them and if you want to top them with whipped cream (they’re good either way), a total of 6. They couldn’t be any simpler to make and if you’re like me, you’ll agree everything better in a mini version.
